Beauty Launch: M.A.C Nail Trend FW 09 by Jin Soon

Exciting news, fellow beauty chicks! Manicurist extraordinaire Jin Soon is launching an exclusive collection with M.A.C this August. Titled Nail Trend FW 09, the collection includes six nail polishes that are inspired by the Fall 2009 collections and upcoming fashion trends. I had the fortune to sit down with Jin backstage at the Doo.Ri Fall 2009 show, where she divulged her inspiration for the collection and showed me one of the colors used on the models at the show, Beyond Jealous.

"This one looks good on every skin tone," Jin told me. "Lots of people go for very daring edge ... that will be more trendy. People didn’t want to get this kind of color before, but now more and more people are into that editorial look."

Jin added, "The designer chose the green. Her line is very strong and tough statement, yet very chic. So she wants to show that. And this color is perfect for her line."

When I asked Jin how she came up with the colors for the collection, she told me, "We checked all the trend forecasts, all the books and everything. Also my favorites that I was into. So we combined ideas. I had been doing all the editorial work, I know what’s gonna be popular, what’s gonna be out there. Also a lot of fashion shoots. So I get all the ideas from shows."

Each of the six polishes is a creme -- no shimmer at all. The colors include:

Cool Reserve (dirty grey lavender)
For Fun (rich clean purple)
Dance All Night (brick red)
Dry Martini (khaki olive green)
Rich, Dark, Delicious (rich blackened brown)
Beyond Jealous (blackened blue green)

The nail polishes in the M.A.C Nail Trend FW 09 by Jin Soon Collection retail for $12 each. They will be available on August 27 at M.A.C counters nationwide.
