Lights Lacquer recently launched the “Los Barrios” capsule collection as an ode to Miami. “Los Barrios” translates to “the neighborhoods”; this new collection is an open letter to the “Magic City” of Miami, by Cuban-American entrepreneur and beauty influencer Kathleen Fuentes, or better known as KathleenLights.
This new collection, which focuses on Miami’s culture and infuence features three new lacquer shades titled “Cubana” a brick red tone—named after Fuentes’ heritage, “Meet me at Space” black with silver sparkles color is named after Miami’s legendary after-hours nightclub,Space, and “ Spanglish” is a metallic silver, which gives a nod to the unofficial language of Miami—Spanglish.
I have tried the colors in this collection and the pigment is perfection. The color doesn’t go on sheer, and one or two coats does the trick. Also, when paired with a base and topcoat, the manicure lasted for about 5 days without chipping.
The collection also includes tattoo-inspired nail stickers, two graphic tees, and three phone cases inspired by the neighborhoods and iconic spots that encompass Miami.
