INSPIRATION:
Happy 2018!!! The inspiration for this month’s collection is The Great North!

As we slowly add more daylight back to our lives we thought it fitting that we explore the bright and cheery side of The Great North! Fire and Ice, warm and cool, each polish this month is inspired by the northern most point of the continents (minus Antarctica).

The warm colors of Punta Gallinas, Ichkeul, and Mussau Islands were inspired by the sandy beaches and warm climes of South America, Africa, and Australia. While Cape Columbia, Cape Fligely, and Rossøya were inspired by the bright, but frigid and stark beauty of the Arctic Circle.

We hope you enjoy the collection!

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this month’s collection is Jewels of the Nile!

The Nile River is one of the longest rivers in the world and a cradle of life for the people and wildlife it touches. Stretching from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean Sea, it provides life and color to otherwise hot and arid land. The Nile is home to ancient wetlands so dense they stopped Roman armies, ancient civilizations of impressive wealth, waterfalls of immense size, and fabled mountains once thought to be the source of the headwaters.

We started with the blues and greens of the river and deltas and expanded to the purples, periwinkles, and reds of land and civilizations that it touches. We hope you enjoy the collection!

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this month’s collection is Zany New Zealand!

New Zealand is one of the most remote places on earth, surrounded by so much water that it is considered the center of the water hemisphere! This remoteness has resulted in spectacularly unique species of plants and animals. The geography of the islands is equally unique and spectacular with a plethora of mountains, glaciers, forests, volcanoes, and beaches.

We were inspired by these stunning contrasts between seas and mountain tops, volcanoes and glaciers all mixing to create this wonderfully diverse country! We hope you enjoy the collection!

The inspiration for this month’s collection is @ NIght!

Night time in the mountains can be magical. Clear skies free from the lights and pollutions of civilization offer incredible views of the stars, the galaxy, and if you’re lucky, perhaps even a meteor shower or an auroral display!

So we started with revisiting a few old favorites and made them a little darker, a little more moody, and more sparkly. Then we created a few more colors that we hope capture the mood of a clear night on the far edge of civilization. We hope you enjoy the collection!

Green foothills and meandering sands deposited from the make the blue waters of this beach pop and sparkle with life.

INSPIRATION:
We once heard an old saying, we think it went, life is a beach, then you dye your hair! Or something like that. This month’s collection is inspired by beautiful beaches from across the world! A day at the beach is always relaxing and reinvigorating for us. The power of the waves and sun, the fluidity of the sand, and the unmoving stability and solidity of the rocks, calms us and reminds us of the cycles of nature. Every beach has its own character and there are so many different kinds of beaches, red sands, black sands, some young, some old, some secluded, some crowded. The diversity and beauty of the beaches around the world made it hard to choose, but we hope you enjoy a few of our favorites!
