KathleenLights, a mega-beauty Youtuber and influencer that has catapulted herself into a brand in and of itself, announced her first solo project: Lights Lacquer. A vegan and cruelty-free nail lacquer brand, Lights Lacquer, is a quality, highly pigmented formula of nail polish that glides on smoothly, for a beautiful, long-wear finish that dries within minutes. The GRL PWR themed collection is a tribute to women’s empowerment and Kathleen’s Cuban roots are seen throughout every facet of the collection. The collections are available for purchase on November 7th and sold exclusively online at https://www.lightslacquer.com. The polishes can be purchased at $9.50 per bottle.
What makes Lights Lacquer polishes unique, is that they are vegan and cruelty-free, which was incredibly important to Kathleen when creating a brand of polishes that are not only beautiful and distinctive but also free of toxins. Their Seven-Free formula is created without toxic chemicals such as Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor, TPHP, and Xylene which are common in many other polishes. This formula makes for a polish that is both safe and beautiful.
Every shade of Lights Lacquer is carefully curated by Kathleen, drawing inspiration from her vast knowledge of makeup, color theory, the world around her, and trendy Pantone colors of the season. Kathleen not only tests every shade individually for opacity and finish, but she also ensures each shade is something not only she loves, but a product her customers and fans will love too.
Lights Lacquer is not complete without the naming of each polish. Naming the polishes is one of Kathleen’s favorite parts of the process. Names for each polish are derived from a variety of inspiration including some of Kathleen’s favorite TV shows, fun expressions, names of people she loves and fan suggestions. The GRL PWR collection is inspired by the strong, powerful women in Kathleen’s life and each lacquer tells a unique story about what each color represents.
The polishes launching in the GRL PWR collection include:
- #8206 – Jefa = The Latinx girl boss
- #8207 – HBIC = (Head. B***h. In. Charge)
- #8208 – Rosie = Dedicated to Kathleen’s Mother
- #8209 – GRL PWR = The Campaign
- #8210 – Woman = The inspiration & embodiment that is the female
- #8211 – 11 = Named after the strong female character from Stranger Things
“Lights Lacquer is a vegan, cruelty and Seven-Free nail lacquer brand that I have put my heart and soul into,” said Kathleen Fuentes. Each name in my first collection GRL PWR is a tribute to women’s empowerment. I made sure my Cuban roots are represented by naming one of my favorite colors of this launch ‘Jefa’, a creamy sage green inspired by the strong women in my life. I hope you feel empowered, inspired and proud when you wear it.”
Lights Lacquer will continue to roll out a variety of collections throughout the coming year. For more information or to purchase GRL PWR, visit https://lightslacquer.com. For downloadable high resolution images of Lights Lacquer, click here.
