Jin Soon Choi is one of the most respected nail professionals in the industry. Constantly in demand for editorial shoots and a fixture at various high-profile fashion shows, Jin Soon has now launched her own line of nail polishes. Read on for more…
Because of the respect Jin Soon commands in the fashion community, the launch of this nail line has been highly anticipated. She even had some of her model friends name the shades in the A La Mode Collection! But this line isn’t just a fling for her. Glitters, duo-chromes? Nope–not going to find them here. Jin Soon’s Collections are about beautiful, high-gloss cremes with big color payoff and a longwearing finish. You know I’m down for that.
There are two collections: the Quintessential Collection, classic red, pink and nude nail shades and a seasonal on-trend color collection called the A La Mode Collection. The formula is 5-Free, which means there are no toxic chemicals like formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin and camphor. In addition, high-tech polymers and resins were added for longer wear and extended shelf life. Clearly, Jin Soon knows what she wants on the nail line that has her name on it!
I was able to preview the Austere shade, a dark olive-green polish. While this wouldn’t be a color I’d normally choose, the shade is a rich olive creme that applies and wears like a dream. The formula is excellent, application smooth and streak-free. I would definitely purchase more colors in this line–starting with the Risque shade.
The Jin Soon Nail Collection retails at $18 per bottle. In addition to polish, there is also a Top Coat and Base Coat available ($18 each). You can find the Jin Soon Nail Collection at Space NK, SpaceNK.com and select NYC Sephora locations.
