why I love it: When I first saw the amazing/crazy/bright painted hair at Thakoon's Spring/Summer 2012 runway show, I was thrilled. After a season full of "wet" looking sporty hair and "greasy" looking anti-makeup, finally beauty editors were given something fun and intriguing to work with. That said, full-on blue or yellow painted hair doesn't exactly translate well for the average person trying to take inspiration from runway beauty.
Enter the Thakoon for Nars nail polish collaboration. I first saw these sitting on a beauty editor's desk a few months ago and was drawn to them immediately because: 1. I am never one to shy away from a super bright nail polish, and 2. Every. Single. Polish. Is. Perfection. The creamy, vibrant hues are just so pretty, and they're all the kind of shades that can easily be worn on fingers or toes. I can also see some serious nail art possibilities given how great all of the polishes look together. I do think there's one major issue this collection presents, though: figuring out how to wear them all that the same time!
