I have a thing for blue nail polish. I wear very little blue in my clothing and wouldn’t count it among even my top five favorite colors, but for some reason, I love blue nails, whether they’re on my hands or feet. In fact, I can’t remember the last time I walked into a nail salon and chose anything other than some shade of blue, from creamy pastel to glittering navy. One color has always evaded me, though – the perfect cobalt. Ladies and gents, Jin Soon Blue Iris Nail Polish is what I’ve been waiting for.
I’ve seen this blue on the nails of several beauty blogger friends who are Jin Soon devotees, but I’ve yet to be able to put my hands on a bottle of it for myself. The brand, founded by New York nail artist and salon owner Jin Soon Choi, is the definition of “boutique,” and finding it at retailers can be tricky. Net-a-Porter just started carrying a few Jin Soon polishes earlier this week, and to my delight, this beautiful blue is among them. On the nail, it’s just perfect – bright, deep, totally vibrant. For a season-transitional pedicure, you can’t ask for much more. Buy through Net-a-Porter for $18.
