YouTube Star Kandee Johnson Reveals Details About Her SinfulColors Nail Polish Collab
Vlogger Kandee Johnson is known for personally trying out every transformation imaginable — from Kris Jenner to Effie Trinket. But this Winter, she's offering you a way to revamp something that requires minimal commitment and skills: your nails.
Kandee teamed up with SinfulColors (the same brand that worked with Kylie Jenner on a lacquer line) to release a 24-piece collection. There are two lines, Pretty Vintage (featuring matte and "sugar" textures) and Vintage Anime. Everything launches this month for a limited time through April at drugstores like Walgreens and Walmart, for $2-$3 per bottle. The shade range is as bright, trendy, and textured as you'd expect from a colorful personality like Kandee.
"We wanted it to be like a vintage, Candyland," Kandee told POPSUGAR via email. "Fun, dreamy, candy shop colors with a mix of vintage velvety [textures], like old matte hot rods. They wanted it to be about colors I love. We used everything from pictures of vintage decorations I liked to patterns and prints. We even looked at pictures of things I like, such as my jewelry, closet, and house. Since I love sugared everything, they created a 'sugared' finish that literally looks like colored sugar on your nails!"
Though Kandee is mostly known for makeup, nail polish is still an essential category to her. She said, "I've loved nail polish and nail art for years. I actually did some of my first nail art video back in '09. It was how to do zebra print and leopard print on your nails. Nail polish and designs are so much fun, and they're an extra way to express your creativity and style. Even when you wash your makeup off and change out of your outfit, your nails are still there to look at and think, 'oh they look fun!'"
The vlogger also described her method as perfectionism, so she was truly hands-on when creating the range. "I'm so glad they love me, and I didn't drive them nuts with my perfectionism and millions of emails and texts and the slightest changes — from the shape of the sticker to fonts to hues of the polish and last-minute polish name changes."
Speaking of, we have an exclusive look at seven of Kandee's favorite colors, the story behind the names, and her tips for wearing them. Keep reading!
