The July 2014 Lacquer Cabinet by Nailtini is curated by guest mixologist, beauty editor Melissa Foss. A portion of all proceeds from the Melissa Foss for Nailtini collection will benefit Animal Haven, which is an NYC-based non-profit that finds homes for abandoned cats and dogs throughout the tri-state area. The names of the nail polishes in this collection – Adopt-Aperitif, Hair of the Dog and Purr-fect Fizz – are inspired by Animal Haven.
Each card introduces you to the collection and also offers a “Tip Jar” which gives you ideas for mixing the polishes that were sent. In this case, combining finishes and textures is recommended. Two empty bottles are provided for “frankening” but you can also layer sheerer shades on top of more saturated shades.
Adopt-apertif – creamy perfect seafoam
Hair of the Dog – matte tangerine shot with gold dust
Purr-fect Fizz – sheer pearlescent shimmer
The Melissa Foss for Nailtini Collection will arrive to subscribers in July 2014 and (as of this posting) is currently still available to purchase. Purchase a single month’s Lacquer Cabinet for $25, a 6-month subscription for $23/month or a 12-month subscription for $20/month. A true happy hour for hands, each collection offers more than $44 in retail value plus free shipping.
