Morgan Taylor is focusing on one of the most glamorous Hollywood icons ever: Marilyn Monroe, with a limited editon Forever Fabulous Marilyn Monroe Collection.
Then as now, red lips and nails were a sign of glamor. Marilyn was often seen wearing both.
Nail polish fans can’t ever get enough colors, and with this collection, they can glam it up with a dozen limited edition “Forever Fabulous” shades of nail lacquer.
A standout in the collection is a nod to Marilyn Monroe herself — a beautiful red: “A Kiss From Marilyn.”
As you can see from my color swatches and from the photo and descriptions below, there is something for everyone from the most demure, to deep metallic and glitters. My swatch photo didn’t turn as vibrant as the actual colors, but you can get a good idea of how their basic color tyhpe.
All the Marilyn Monroe-centic colors are long-lasting and formaldehyde, and DBP-free:
The Nail Colors (clockwise):
Wrapped in Satin: blue-snow-kissed shimmer
A Kiss From Marilyn: classic red creme
I Prefer Millionnaire: copper and plum perle
Hollywood’s Sweetheart: medium nude creme with a hint of rose
Ice or No Dice: intense gold glitter
Batting My Lashes: very deep mahogany creme (very glam on nails)
She’s a Natural: a light nude creme (this one needs a couple of coats)
Diamonds are my BFF: the glitteriest silver (use two coats — its killer)!
The Camera Loves Me: a super elegant burgundy creme (my choice for the office party)
Wish Upon a Starlet: a beautiful red shimmer
Blue-Eyed Beauty (Morgan Taylor describes it as baby blue) I think it’s more of a medium pastel blue
Some Like It Red: a starry-red topcoat of sheer red glitter (use several coats to wear it alone).
There are also some great gift sets from Morgan Taylor to suit whatever your budget. The most affordable? just $14.95.
Exclusive to ULTA is a mini-sized 4 -pack like the one above, but with different polish colors and Morgan Taylor also has a 9-polish collection ($24.95).
I’ll be willing to be that Marilyn Monroe would love these –as we do! For more information visit the Morgan Taylor Website http://www.morgantaylorlacquer.com/
