Finally! Nail lovers have been waiting for a peek at Andrea Fulerton’s range – it is really very impressive, so here’s a view of some of the polishes modelled by my friend Anna. I’ll have product pics shortly, but wanted to showcase some of them in the place they’re meant to be first! What I really do like about the entire collection – that includes everything nails, from buffers to remover, is that it puts the fun back into manicures. There’s a vibe for all things haute in grungy colours and at wince-making price points that this range is the absolute antidote for.
The range is comprehensive, affordable and exciting – it’s taken some creative steps that premium brands haven’t even thought of yet. Nail Colours (24 in the range so far) are £4.99 each and are named for celebrities that Andrea has worked with – Sienna is bright orange, Nigella is a natural creme and Kylie is a multi-glitter hue. The Trio Colour Layering System, £7.99, is a double ended bottle that allows you to use either shade and if you layer one over another, you create a third shade. They’re named by Nigella Lawson – but don’t be thinking Bread & Butter Pudding or Sauce Pot – the glam line up includes metallic Goldfinger, green hued Garden of Eden and purple Night Fever. I also love the Gemstone Overcoat – a top coat with fine sparkle that transforms your day look into a party one in a matter of moments.
With Nail Art (think glitter puff dusts, gemstones and tattoos), Nail Care (oils, quick dry coats and mistake erasers) and peel-offs, there’s almost nothing this new brand hasn’t thought of to get nailistas off and painting pronto. I think the fact that it’s lead by a working nail artiste with her manicured finger on the pulse of not only what’s wanted, but what’s actually needed to get good nail, really shows and the range is easily one of the most exciting to enter the beauty arena in a long time.
Sephora will weep.
