Morgan Taylor Selfie Summer 2017 Collection!

(Press samples ahead!)

Hello!


Today I have something new to me to show you--Morgan Taylor's new Selfie Summer 2007 collection, which has summer cremes, shimmers, neons, and even a cute selfie stick to help you capture all your awesome mani moments:

First up we have Morgan Taylor All About The Pout, a light pinky-peach slightly neon creme:

Coverage: two coats
Formula and application: Great formula, no issues--and I love the brush shapes, which fit the curve of the cuticle perfectly.

This is a gentle neon--it has a hint of the bright, but isn't the kind you can see from across the street. I love this shade--it made me look tan and chic and made me feel romantic. Love.


Next up is Morgan Taylor Best Face Forward, a classic blurple with blue shimmer that favors blue in most lights:

Coverage: two coats
Formula and application: Great formula, no issues.


In the bottle this looked more purple than it ended up looking when I wore it. You can see the purple lean in the edge of the bottle in the shot--the polish shows more purple in darker lights. It's rich and the blue shimmer gives it a hint of depth.


Next we have Morgan Taylor Me, My Self-ie, And I, a neon peach shimmer:

Coverage: two coats
Formula and application: Great formula, no issues.


This is my favorite of the collection. The neon isn't overwhelming and the shimmer adds some pretty--it's a refreshing color for those hot summer days.


Next we have Morgan Taylor No Filter Needed, a blue creme that bridges sky blue and cerulean:

Coverage: three coats
Formula and application: Great formula, no issues.

This is a bright, fun polish that makes me want to go outside and have a picnic under a beautiful summer sky. I did need three coats to get full coverage on this one, however.


Next is Morgan Taylor Pretty As A Pink-Ture, a hot pink neon creme:

This is one of those neons that are so bright they freak out my camera! This is a flirty pink, for the days when you want to get noticed.


Next up is Morgan Taylor Woke Up This Way, a fuchsia neon creme so bright it gave my camera fits:

This is tropical flowers and popsicles on a hot day. It's passionate and fun, and BRIGHT. If you love neons, you'll love this.


In addition to the colors of the collection, Morgan Taylor also sent me their React base and topcoat, which turn the polishes into no-light gel polishes. I'll post separately about how they wear, but can say for now that I'm very impressed by how shiny the topcoat is--it rivals my beloved Seche Vite! So if it really does give long wear as well, I'm going to be very, very impressed. :)


So what do I think of the collection as a whole? There's a solid set of summer colors in neon and not-so-neon finishes. Most of the polishes dried to a semi-matte finish, so if you want them glossy, you'll definitely want topcoat. I love the brush shape of the polishes--they're the best I've used in terms of ease of application. And the quality of the polishes all seem high, although I did need three coats to get full coverage with No Filter Needed.


These polishes are on sale now at J.C. Penny, and you can also buy them through Morgan Taylor's site. And, you can check check them out across the internet here:




Happy polishing!
