This Taro Tea-Inspired Gel Polish Is the Nail Color of the Summer

Lilac is having a moment.

Summertime calls for mood-lifting nail polish shades that are colorful yet versatile enough to go with any outfit. If you, like me, prefer pastel colors to bright, saturated hues, then perhaps you’ll enjoy Canadian brand GELCARE‘s “Taro Tea.” Named after the refreshing beverage, the gel nail polish is a beautiful, milky lilac that appeals even to those who typically find purple a tough color to pull off. It’s a shade that looks perfect on its own, but for skilled at-home manicurists, the taro-inspired color also serves as a great option for creating a tie-dye nail art design.

Read on for why I’ll be wearing this week’s Editor’s Pick all summer long.

WHAT IS IT: GELCARE UV Gel Nail Polish “Taro Tea”

WHY IT’S WORTH THE HYPE: An unexpected color trend, lilac has been having a moment since a few seasons ago — the sorbet-like shade has made appearances here and there, from a tonal Bottega Veneta crochet look to Gucci’s ugly-chic rubber clogs. If you aren’t quite ready to commit to the color for your wardrobe, why not try it on your nails? GELCARE’s “Taro Tea,” a white-based gel nail polish coming in pastel purple, is easy to apply even for first-timers attempting to do their own gel nails at home. An added bonus, the formula is cruelty-free as well as 10-free, meaning it does not contain the 10 most harmful chemical ingredients commonly used in gel polishes.

WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT: The GELCARE nail color retails for $19.45 USD at the Le Manoir website.
