Morgan Taylor’s about to launch their ‘Hello Pretty’ Tokyo-inspired collection

Winter’s not quite done with us but it’s on it’s way out and that means it’s time to lay off the dark ‘I’m a gloomy hipster sippin’ Sxollie cider in The Village Idiot’ nail colour shades (and by that I mean anything grey, oxblood, navy or black) and make the move towards pretty pastels and look-at-me brights.

One of the first spring collections to cross my desk has been Morgan Taylor’s Tokyo-street fashion inspired Hello Pretty collection.

Katy Perry circa 2012 would be thrilled.

I’ve searched online for a press pic that shows all the bottles together and while there are several none of them portray the colours in a way that’s true to life. Even the shot above isn’t bringing the neon aspect through strong enough. Still, there are lots of fab swatches on blogs out there though so to see the rest of the colours I’d suggest you get googling. Obviously I can’t nick another blogger’s shot and feature it here. Still, I do have two of my own to show you.

Do You Harajuku seriously doesn’t work for me. It makes me think of Tippex with a hint of green which makes it almost as difficult to paint with as white or black in that every ‘mistake’ is super visible. Also, it totally washes me out so I’ll rather leave it to someone with a darker skin tone and perfect painting skills to do it justice. Pop-Arazzi Pose, however, is a goodie.

I liked that you only needed two coats to get full opacity. It’s the kind of striking, almost neon watermelon pink that’ll look great on toes come summer.

The collection, along with matching Gelish colours (woop, woop!) will be available in salons and stores including Sorbet and Dis-Chem as of early next month so keep an eye out if you’re keen. Each polish is R123 a pop.

Love, love
