I am very excited to introduce to my readers JINSoon. For those who aren't familiar, Jin Soon Choi is a Korean born popular celebrity manicurist based in New York City. Her eponomous polish line launched in 2012 to rave reviews, and now I see why.
The shades featured here include-
Auspicious: a light grey creme, with a very subtle lavender undertone.
Nostalgia: a perfect creamy nude.
Nocturne: a blackened gunmetal in a metallic finish.
Chamonix: a black that dries to a textured "leather-like" finish.
(all swatches shown here are two coats, and are photographed outdoors in natural sunlight).
I am absolutely in LOVE with this line, and there are a few reasons why.
First off, I love the packaging. It's very unique and different from whats out there on the market. It's sleek and elegant, but most importantly it's not bulky; this is super important for me, for I'm always performing manicures on sets, and when polishes are packaged in too large of bottles I can't travel with as many. But these small bad boys fit beautifully in both my travel kit, and in my hand when using them to paint.
I found formula to be quite great and highly pigmented. I really liked the brush. I found it very easy to work with. Each of the shades I tried painted on smoothly, effortlessly, evenly, and with zero brush strokes. The polishes all happen to be 5 free as well (formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor), which is also a great thing- the less toxic chemicals the better.
If you haven't yet tried out this brand I highly recommend you do so.
JINSoon nail polishes retail for $18 per 0.37 fl oz (11 mL) bottle.
