In the world of fashion and beauty, things never stay the same. Trends are always changing, and that is one of the things that I love! The newest trend that I am enjoying is Lime Crime’s bright, vibrant cosmetics collections. Have you heard of pop-on nails? This fashion trend is like getting fake nails but made with D.I.Y. fans in mind.
Lime Crime offers many colors of pop on nails, but my favorites are a part of the new “Mermaid Collection” offered by this fantastically fun brand. The new collection is completely mermaid inspired and includes aquamarine blues, opalescent pastels, and fantasy worthy pinks and purples. The pop on nails in this new collection come in “Lizard” which is a metallic dark green with rainbow reflections, as well as oyster, which is a soft, smokey lavender.
All of the Lime Crime products are certified vegan and cruelty free. The materials that they use for their pop on nails is super natural feeling. You can even file them just like you would a regular nail! The process of using them really doesn’t take much longer than it does to apply nail polish. You have to wipe your nails first with acetone to get rid of any excess oils. You should also trim them so that you start with short, clean nails. Next, you apply a little bit of glue and pop the nail on! Hence the name, “pop on nail”! It is so easy and can add so much sparkle and character to your look.
That is pretty much what Lime Crime does best. They add, what they call on their website, “extra”. That extra touch that no one else has. That extra metallic flash. That extra touch of color and glamour. This brand is all about self expression. The CEO and founder, Doe Deere, says she started the company almost ten years ago when she needed products for herself to wear along with an eccentric Halloween costume. The products that she has come up with since continue to offer wild, bold, expressive products to her fans. And I, for one, am grateful!
