Capsule Collection: STRANGEBEAUTIFUL Creates Actual Doses of Nail Color
Published Sep 22, 2012
STRANGEBEAUTIFUL creator Jane Schub is responsible for some of the most cerebral and well thought out nail color we’ve ever seen, but this fall she’s ditched bookish allusions in favor of a more lighthearted approach to nail cravings—with the appropriate dosage.
Call it Jane’s addiction or a remedy for the truly manicure-obsessed, her new DOSE line is exactly that—doses of high-pigment polish in tiny capsules, housed in pharmaceutical-style glass vials. Novelty is a big factor here with such a tiny package, but Jane intends for the line to be fun and not as serious as her previous Volume releases. “Cheerfulness, impulsive, addictive, and smile-inducing,” is how she described the collection to Beautylish over email. That’s a lot to say about nail color, but when you’re constantly surrounded by beauty products, it‘s rare to encounter something that actually makes you grin.
With six trios to choose from, we’re hooked on Clever Girl’s romantic violets and Bright Future’s Halloween-perfect palette. But in the end, all of them would look as good on our vanity table as in our medicine cabinet.
