nail lacquer: Trust Fund Beauty in "Elegantly Wasted" c/o and "Blow" c/o ($13.50 USD)

While I'm between seasons of #RichKidsOfBeverlyHIlls and Keeping Up With The Kardashians,  Trusts Fund Beauty has been giving me my weekly portions of glamorously snobby, privilege , rich girl fun. Trust Fund Beauty nail polish is designed with the spirit of Serena and Blair from the Upper East side with an equally important spirit of ethical consciousness. Trust Fund Beauty operates under an "absolutely no animal testing" system and all of its polish formulas are 5-free and vegan.

Beyond the formulas and testing practices of Trust Fund Beauty, the quality and color of the each nail polish are never compromised. I received two hues titled Elegantly Wasted and Blow in a dark lilac and a French manicure-style white, respectively. Elegantly Wasted is a departure from my usual pink toned polishes,but the blue-purple tint is a surprisingly cool alternative that I've quickly come to love. Though the actually lacquer seems to run thin as though it's been mixed with water or nail polish remover, the pigment is so strong with just one coat the color is so intensified there is barely a need for a second or third coat. The color itself is so rich (no pun intended) that the single coat of polish can easily pack the same punch as some of your run of the mill nail art.

As for Blow, despite its French manicure potential I coated my entirely nail to create unexpected, festively winter nails. Unlike Elegantly Wasted, Blow requires a minimum of two coats and a suggested three in order to maintain complete coverage and whiter than white color. However, the slight transparency comes in handy for color layering nail art. I experimented by painting my nail with a two coats of pink Ciate nail polish in Candy Floss and covering it in one coat of Blow. The result was an intentionally streaked cotton candy pink that looked as though it just came home from the county fair. The next Trust fund Beauty hue on my list is Snappy Socialite. It's similar in shade to Elegantly Wasted except Snappy Socialite has a thermal sensitive formula so the color and shade of your nails changes with the temperature. There are dozens of colors on the Trust Fund Beauty website and you can order sample packs of 3, 5, or 6 polishes all less than $15 USD (the website is priced in Canadian dollars) to try out the different collections and see which shades you like best.
