Mani of the Week: JinSoon Blue Iris

I'm kind of a one-woman publicity machine when it comes to celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi. I'm a loyalist to her homey yet luxurious New York salons, hoarded her MAC Nail Trend lacquers from 2009, and pretty much lost my mind when her own collection launched last fall. So, it only makes sense that her new Spring collection has already found its way onto my nails, even with snow currently falling from the sky.

Seen above is the perfect Winter-to-Spring bridge color, Blue Iris, a highly-pigmented and ultra-glossy deep electric blue that somehow manages to walk the line between FUN and SOPHISTICATED quite effortlessly. It's one of five flower-themed additions to the a La Mode collection by Choi, which encompasses trend capsules each season, with each lacquer named by a model (Saskia de Brauw did the honors in this case). 

Shop the JinSoon collection at SpaceNK. Each lacquer is $18, and the impeccable, long-lasting five-free formula is worth every single penny.
