"Ahoy! Set sail with the A Very Nauti-cal Girl collection from Morgan Taylor Lacquer for May through July 2016. Inspired by summer sailing, this four-piece collection navigates its way through the sun-filled season with a blazing red, deep sea blue, sunset magenta and sailor white. This collection's cool shades boast a classic twist to keep your nails maritime ready until fall!
"This collection was developed for the beach babe who is the captain of her own style and enjoys expressing her personality through her nails," says brand namesakes Morgan Haile and Taylor Daniel. "Each shade will help her cruise through the warmer serasons!" according to the official press release.
A Very Nauti-cal Girl collection is comprised of the following shades:
Girls Love Buoys: a bold and bright magenta cream. A One Coat Wonder! Incredibly well pigmented. Sort of has a neon quality to it regarding the fact that it sort of drys to a matte finish. [magenta creme]
Catch My Drift: a royal blue cream with violet undertones. [cobalt creme]
My Yacht, My Rules!: an off white taupe with a shimmer running through it. [white frost]
Wish Upon A Starboard: a bright fire engine true red cream. [cherry creme]
(all swatches shown here are two coats, without a top coat, and are taken outdoors in natural light).
I have to be totally honest and candid with you all, initially I wasn't super impressed with the collection. I found it sort of basic and unnecessary. However, once I played around with it I started to change my mind.
I found most of the shades to be well pigmented, Girls Love Buoys in particular- which covered completely in a single coat which always makes me supremely happy. The rest of the colors built up nicely with two coats. There was no issues with streaking or pooling.
My two personal favorites and recommendations from this collection are: Girls Love Buoys and My Yacht, My Rules!
A Very Nauti-cal Girl 2016 summer drop-in collection from Morgan Taylor will be available for a limited time beginning May 2016 at fine salons nationwide and at MorganTaylorLacquer.com. The suggested retail price is $9 each (15 mL 0.5 fl oz) and $14.95 for the 4-piece mini pack (not shown here).
