Fashion and flirtation. Perfumed blooms and passed libations. The garden party — where cocktails and passions are stirred in equal measures — is the inspiration for Nailtini’s spring/summer polish collection by Janie Bryant, the Emmy winning fashion designer, author of the The Fashion File and creater of her own “MOD” line of women’s wear for QVC as as the fashions seeon on AMC’s “Mad Men.”
“The garden party is such a civilized concept, but beneath all those good manners and chic frocks, there’s an underpinning of drama, where anything can happen. The colors in the collection reflect these delightful contradictions,” says Bryant of her second collaboration with Nailtini, which comes on the heels of her highly acclaimed fall holiday limited edition for the brand. The limited edition Garden Party collection has everything from petit-four pastels to a punchy high-shine patent to a sheer shimmery veil that can be worn alone or as an overlay.
Blue Carnation – a soft, milky blue shade. I didn’t like that it was milky, because you have to be careful when applying otherwise you will see each stroke. I wish it had a creamy texture instead that way the shade that appears on my nails would be the same shade that appears in the bottle.
Admiral Perry – a dark, creamy royal blue shade. It’s a great alternative for black, and it’s a great shade to wear when you want to go dark, but still want a pop of color.
Blushing Lady – a creamy, shell pink shade. It’s a girly shade that will go perfect with the floral sundresses and skirts. It’s my favorite out of the four in the collection.
Garden Jubilee – a pink and green iridescent shade with a flash of gold. It’s a sheer shade that you can wear either by itself or layered over another color.
