Real talk: shade matching is hard. I write about beauty for a living and still beg makeup artists to tell me what colors work for my skin tone. Finding the perfect, flattering hue is especially difficult when you're in the market for a nail polish. With so many pretty colors to pick from, how do you end up with the best possible result?
The folks at L.B.K. Nail Lacquer are here to help: the brand just dropped 48 shades of polishes ($10) topped with a special swatched cap that looks like a painted nail. All you have to do is slide your finger underneath to see what the color would look like once applied.
Not only that, but these polishes are vegan-friendly and seven-free, which means that each one is made without the toxic (but all too common) ingredients of parabens, phthalates (dibutyl phthalate), camphor, formaldehyde, toluene, xylene, and resin. We'll give points to LBK for convenience and safety.
