Austin jewelry maven Kendra Scott has made a name with her bold baubles. Now the designer is making a splash in the beauty world with the new Kendra Scott Nail Lacquer collection. The collection, which debuted late last month, is inspired by what Scott knows best: gorgeous jewels.

“I am a jewelry designer at heart,” Scott says. “Inspired by the same beautiful, natural shades found in our gemstones and innovative jewelry treatments like iridescent shine and metallic shimmer, my team and I designed the next must-have accessory: nail lacquer.”

The collection features 23 shades, including a top coat and base coat. Bold signature shades like the popular Pink Agate are priced at $16, and drusy-inspired shades are $18.

Meticulously curated by Scott and her design team, the collection is quintessentially Kendra Scott: The crystal-shaped bottle design and eye-catching shades take nail art to a new level. 

“I believe accessorizing shouldn’t stop at your jewelry,” Scott says. “We encourage our customers to mix and match, layer on our shades, and get creative. Nail art is becoming huge in the fashion world and I love seeing the fun, playful combinations our fans create.”

Some of Scott’s favorite shades? Iridescent Drusy, Blue Lapis, and Cool Iridescent Shimmer. The full collection is available at all Kendra Scott stores and online, and she hints at more choices in the future.

“I am constantly inspired by the evolving trends in fashion and am excited to create new, innovative seasonal shades of Kendra Scott Nail Lacquer,” Scott says. “I have always believed jewelry was just the beginning for Kendra Scott, and I’m thrilled to see how our brand will continue and grow with the coming seasons.” 

Kendra Scott nail polish also is available at Austin's luxe nail bar LACQUER, which has a location downtown and will open a second location near the Domain this fall.
