There’s a new nail kid on the block, rolling out to salons this summer. From the peeps who brought us CND and Minx comes Morgan Taylor Professional Nail Lacquer, a brand with a USP that’s all about finely-milled, high quality pigments, shimmers and metallics for the best finish. And yup, they’re formaldehyde-, toluene-, and DBP-free.

Plus, this brand has a pedigree: created by the daughters of the Gelish founder, it’s safe to say they probably know what they’re about. Pre-launch, the colours were used at fashion weeks in Milan, London and New York and graced Victoria Beckham and Betsey Johnson’s catwalks. Not bad, eh?

I’ve yet to try, but shades look sweet.

Along with 48 colours there are care products and they’ll come in at what I reckon’s an affordable €9.95 for a 15ml bottle. You should start to see the brand roll out this month; if you’re interested in finding out more, head to www.creativeacademy.ie or call 01 429 5122.
