Beauty editors have been besides themselves ever since they first caught glimpse of Jin Soon Choi’s six new nail-polish shades for M.A.C. Jin Soon (of the renowned Jin Soon Natural Hand & Foot Spas) created complex and fashion-forward colors — these aren’t fire-engine red or a nice neutral beige. For Doo.Ri’s fall 2009 show, models wore Jin Soon’s Beyond Jealous, a blackened blue-green that makes fingertips look like pieces of licorice. Dry Martini is a perfect fatigue green, while Cool Reserve is a chalky, dirty gray-lavender. The colors are incredibly rich, the polish goes on thick, and seems to last forever (our mani lasted for almost two weeks). The colors hit stores August 27, but we anticipate a waiting list and a quick sellout.
