Even though I could never pull off 90% of the things that Alexa Chung wears, I still love her sense of style and how interesting she always looks. So when I heard that she was collaborating with nails, inc. on a small collection of new shades, I was super excited. I knew they'd be unique and different and I was right.
There are six shades in the fabric collection and honestly, they're all must-haves. I'm a big fan of the nails, inc. formula to begin with, so this only made me love the brand even more. I've only gotten my hands on two of the shades so far and I can already tell that I'm going to be stalking Sephora until I have the other four shades in my possession.
The shade above is called Alexa Sequins in Black and Gold and it's by far my favorite shade of the six. I mean, look at it! It's so gorgeous, right? It's fine matte particles mixed with gold metallic glitters and it's meant to mimic the effect of a fabulous sequin dress. (Side note - I love sequins. My prom dress was emerald sequins and I still remember putting it on for the first time and thinking, "This is the best dress ever! I'm never taking it off!" What can I say - it was the 90's). There's also two shades of black - a Silk that reminds me of my beloved Chanel Black Satin, and a Leather, which is Alexa's version of their best-selling leather black - it dries with a matte leather texture that I'm dying to see in person. There's also a shade called Alexa Camo - I have this one and it's another stunner - a mix of green and nude metallic and matte particles that's meant to create a camouflage effect for your nails. Very cool. There's also a neutral pinky-beige called Alexa Cashmere in Mink and the other one that I cannot wait to use - Alexa Lace in Red. This one is super, super interesting. It contains red matte particles in different sizes that create a lace effect. It's supposed to be worn over your favorite nude, which I really like - doesn't that sound like an amazing combo? They must all be mine!
The collection is available now at Sephora and on nailsinc.com, but I'd act quickly. These seem far too cool to last long!
