According to Women’s Wear Daily (WWD)
, “Mad Men” costume designer Janie Bryant has collaborated with Huntington Beach, Calif.-based nail polish brand Nailtini
on four limited edition nail lacquers for fall.
Nailtini is known for its cocktail-inspired polish line. Base coats are called Mixers; the nail polish itself is called Straight Up Colors; the special effects top coats are called Toppers; and stencil nail art designs are called Garnishes. It’s a pretty cute concept.
Bryant told the fashion journal that she was inspired by fabrics used in cocktail dresses during the “Mad Men” era — velvets, satins and lamés — when creating the colors, which are a brown, gold, platinum and iridescent shade called Bourbon Satin, French 75, Deauville and Stinger
, respectively. The $14 fall polishes will be able this fall in CVS’ Beauty 360 and Duane Reade’s Look stores.
Michelle Toma Olson, founder of Nailtini, told WWD that she is hopeful Bryant will team up with Nailtini on a spring collection as well
