When we started thinking about our first collection, we wanted to make it something that was fun, but also had some of the basics everyone needs in their nail polish collection. We imagined some vibrant, exciting summer colors that would make you happy just looking at them!
Therefore, we decided to go with four bright colors to make your nails pop, as well as with two basic colors everyone needs in their collection: black and white!
We are in love with all the colors we chose, but we wanted to have you guys do the fun part and name them! So we posted some bottle shots on our Instagram @heroine.nyc and looked at all the amazing suggestions that came in, picked our top three and had everyone vote on those again! And now we have some awesome names for some awesome colors!
Touch-Me-Not was named by Gillian aka @gillybilly_ from the U.S., who suggested the name because this gorgeous deep purple reminded her of the flowers in her garden which are commonly known as Touch-Me-Not’s! It’s opaque in two easy coats and even works as a great color to transition into fall!
Sublime was named by Victoria aka @vickyross999 from the UK – we think this name is the perfect fit for this pastel neon lime green!! It has a slightly chalky texture to it like a lot of neon polishes have, but it opaque in two easy coats.
Royal Blood was named by Sonja aka @snowcolours from Germany and we absolutely love it! The first coat goes on slightly sheer, almost like a jelly, but as soon as the second coat is on this blue is gorgeous, shiny and opaque!
White Noise is a clean simple white that is a staple in every nail girls collection. It was named by Alisha aka @allycat41987 from the U.S.! Two easy coats make this beautifully opaque to be worn on it’s own or as a base for some nail art!
Mean Girl is a bright neon pink that will for sure make your nails stand out wherever you are – it even glows in the dark! It was named by Nicole aka @nailsbycoley from the U.S. and reminds us to wear some pink on Wednesdays!
Lights out is a deep dark black polish, another staple in your polish collection! It was named by Arianna aka @nail_art_inspirer and always makes for a simple and chic mani in almost one easy coat.
We hope you love our polishes just as much as we do and we want to thank everyone in participating in naming them! We had so much fun reading all your amazing ideas that this sure won’t be the last time we host a polish naming contest!
