Summer by the Sea gives nail professionals unlimited creativity to design perfect looks for clients of all kinds. Whether your perfect beach is calm, soft and sandy or you seek the explosion of colour found deep below the surface, we know you’ll love our latest collection.
All 12 of Summer by the Sea shades are available from 16.05.22 in both all-new P+ Gel Polish and Light Elegance Color and Glitter Gel, giving you the ability to complete any salon service with ease and deliver the ocean breeze to clients of all persuasions.
Lezlie McConnell, co-founder and co-owner of Light Elegance, says this release is the latest result of the company’s commitment to offering nail professionals with top-quality, versatile and responsibly-formulated products that make creativity in the salon fast and easy.
“The trend for Summer 2022 is filled with neutrals and pastels, but we’re really starting to see some bold, bright and complementary colors trending,” said Lezlie. “When you think of Summer you think of the beach, beach houses and oceanside vacations filled with beautiful colors. The beach and ocean offer such a wide spectrum of colors that allowed our color experts to let their imaginations swim wild with Summer by the Sea—all while nailing the fashion trends for this year.
Summer by the Sea draws from everything from the neutral color of sand to the brilliant blue of the ocean—and of course the beautiful fish down in the sea. Looking at this cohesive collection you can almost smell the salt in the air and feel the sun on your back! We know nail professionals and their clients will be drawn toward the sea this Summer, and we can’t wait to see what you create!”

More about the all-new P+ Gel Polish System
P+ Gel Polish is the latest HEMA-monomer free innovation from Light Elegance and builds upon the success of Light Elegance’s popular JimmyGel Building Base in a bottle, offering the same hard-gel performance in a soak-off system. Like JimmyGel, P+ Gel Polish lasts for weeks and incorporates a perfect blend of strength and flexibility formulated for the nail professional.
With both the health of the client and nail professional in mind, P+ is formulated to be a safer gel polish option and does not contain any HEMA monomer or common ingredients known to cause allergies in clients or nail pros. P+ is also 9-free, cruelty-free, vegan and gluten-free which makes it a gel polish nail professionals can be proud to use and clients can be proud to wear—safely, too.
Each batch of P+ is rigorously quality checked at Light Elegance Headquarters, and in-house R&D at the Oregon-based facility means they create everything from scratch. This means unprecedented consistency in colour and performance, batch after batch.
P+ is incredibly versatile, offering a solution for every service. Lush P+ Gel Polishes and Glitter Gel Polishes can be applied over JimmyGel, Lexy Line hard gels, acrylic or the all-new P+ QDbase coat. The innovative P+ QDbase coat is designed to accelerate the removal of P+ Gel
Polish, allowing the product to soak-off in just 7 minutes.
