2013 Luxury Lacquer: The Runway Trend Report

Welcome to 2013! 2012 was a great year for us even though we only launched towards the end of it! So as you can imagine, we’re quite excited to see what 2013 has in-store. We’re planning a big year and hoping that you will join us to make it a fabulous one!

So what can we expect for nail style in 2013? No need to wait any longer! Here are several trends straight from the runways that we can’t wait to try. 

Pearlescent (or White) Lacquer

Shiny, iridescent shades were popular on the spring runways and worked beautifully to complement several lovely collections. For a great pearlescent shade, try Chanel’s Pearl Drop.

Two-Toned Nails

We are huge fans of duo shades, so we are thrilled to see many two toned manicures this season! Try a neutral shade and compliment it with a bright color.

Metallic Accents

Any manicure can be improved with metallic lacquer! We recommend using a vibrant metallic lacquer like NARS Diamond Life or Butter London Knackered for a twist on the traditional sparkly manicure. This year we’re leaning towards blues, bright reds and emerald greens.

Nude Nails

You really can’t go wrong with classic nude nails! Our favorite nude shades include Deborah Lippmann Sarah Smile, Tom Ford Naked and Chanel Beige. This year, they are more shiny than matte and a little nail art can add that extra pop. Nude lacquer is always a runway favorite and never goes out of style!

Welcome to Lacquerous! “Netflix For Nails” has arrived!

The day has come: Lacquerous has finally gone live! Now you have access to a fabulous inventory of luxury lacquers that are available to try without having to buy.

Thanks to Refinery 29 for breaking the story yesterday. Check out what they had to say, along with others. 

"We love this idea — access to designer-ready digits without having to shell out $30 for a single polish? Genius. We’ve rarely, if ever, used an entire bottle of polish in our lives — usually we get halfway down and they start getting all tacky and hard to use, so we just chuck them. This gives you the opportunity to try the latest shades, without the commitment or the hefty price tag. And, for those of you germaphobes worried about shared polish being unsanitary, remember that the polishes you use at the nail salon are just that: communal, meaning lots of other people have used them. Not to mention the fact that nail polish manufacturers have to make sure that their lacquers are safe despite how many people are using them, meaning that polish is not a cesspool of icky bacteria, thank you very much.” ~Refinery 29

In this anti-ownership era, anyone one can have anything for a limited time only. We bike share, Zipcar, and Netflix our way through the day without having to sign anything permanent. Websites like Rent the Runway and Bag Borrow or Steal allow a tenuous hold on whatever the heart desires (within company-defined limits). Lacquerous, a brand-new nail polish sharing company, combines the rental aspect of Rent the Runway with the subscription model of Birchbox, to allow any girl to dip her nails into a variety of luxury polishes for a flat rate of $18 a month. ~ TIME Style

The most common question we receive is naturally about hygiene. Yep, we’ve heard it all! The fact is that, as microbiologists confirm, no fungus, bacteria, microbe or anything living can survive in a bottle of nail polish. At Lacquerous, bottles are sealed for at least 1 day in transit and we inspect all bottles received. The truth is, whether we want to admit it or not, we all take a risk when sharing makeup at a department store or eating from a salad bar or touching a handrail.. If you are germaphobe, then sadly this probably isn’t for you. 

Some of the other common questions we’ve been getting are: What if I use to much? Will I get a new bottle everytime?  The answer is, much like a club, it’s about sharing the product. We provide an experience to our members to try luxury lacquer. We’ll never send you anything that isn’t Instagram worthy ;) All we ask is that you stick to the guidelines as close as possible and we’ll make sure you will enjoy being a part of Lacquerous. We’re less like Big Brother and a lot more like a big sister! All these questions are answered on the website too.

Now, for the fun part! What colors do you want to try? You can email Lacquerous while you are waiting! Here are some of the designer brands already available:

Butter London

Chanel

Deborah Lippmann

Dior

Dolce & Gabbana

MAC

NARS

Fall Lacquer Collections

Summer is officially over, but there’s so much to look forward to this fall! We are anticipating cooler temperatures, cozier fashion and holidays but most of all, fall lacquers! Many amazing collections are about to be released in the next few months. Here are some of our favorites!

One of the collections we are most excited about is NARS x Andy Warhol. Inspired by the iconic pop artist, this collection features 6 Technicolor lacquers. These vibrant polishes will be available October 1 as a part of the NARS x Andy Warhol Color Collection.

 Essential items created by Coco Chanel inspire Chanel’s fall collection, Les Essentiels. The little black dress, the quilted handbag, and two-toned shoes are muses for the soft color palette of grey, fuchsia and black.

The Dior Golden Jungle Collection features 3 lacquers inspired by a jungle motif, one of Dior’s signature themes. A khaki green crocodile leather effects polish joins a shimmery gold and a reddish brown lacquer in this earth-toned collection.

According to Tom Ford, his fall lacquers “have a twist of the perverse to them.” Minx, a dark bronze, and Dominatrix, a smoky purple, are edgy, dramatic lacquers perfect for fall.

Nail the Olympic Look

The London Olympics are in full swing and we think that there’s no better way to show support for your home team than with patriotic nails!

 

The Thakoon for Nars lacquer collection is full of vibrant shades that are perfect for red, white, and blue nails to salute team USA! Pair Lal Mirchi and Koliary with your favorite white lacquer (we recommend Dolce & Gabbana True White) for a chic patriotic manicure.

Rooting for the host country of Great Britain? Go for the gold with this glistening manicure from 10 Blank Canvases.

Show support for many countries with a fabulous national flag manicure.

Get abstract with an ode to the iconic Olympic Rings by using a drinking straw as a nail stamp like Chelsea King of Get Nailed.

Nail Neon This Summer!

A great way to sustain your style in the summer heat is with neon lacquer! From the runways to the red carpet, neon nails are the hottest accessory this season. Some of our favorite lacquer brands have gorgeous vibrant shades to add some brightness to your manicure and pop to your wardrobe.

Chanel Vernis Holiday


Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like


Dior Summer Mix Collection


Thakoon for NARS

If you are unsure about taking your nails all the way into the neon craze, try mixing bright shades with nude polish for a subtler look.

Another chic style is to layer neon colors to create a cool ombré effect!
