Nothing says Summer like a drive-in movie on a warm July night. The giant screen is showing a classic film, the popcorn is hot and the air is thick with romance. Meet Light Elegance’s all-new Summer 2022 The Drive In ButterCream collection and transport yourself to a dreamy place where your biggest concern is whether the top on the convertible will be up or down.

The Drive In’s six new Oscar-winning shades capture all the anticipation, drama and butterflies Summer love entails with a palette both sophisticated and sultry. The colours range from neutral to bold in a complementary array that captures all the contrast of the bright screen against the dark sky of a Summer night. Each shade has been carefully selected to pair well with the next, allowing nail professionals to make their own movies, one nail at a time, all while offering their clients on-trend colours that guarantee the story ends happily.

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 products that meet the needs of every nail professional, client, and service.

“With The Drive In, we really wanted to deliver a Summer experience with the perfect balance of fun, fashion and flirtation. To achieve that, we went back in time for our inspiration; there is nothing more fun and full of fantasy on a warm Summer night than a drive-in movie with just the right person,” said Lezlie.

“The drive-in creates an exciting and passionate feeling—just like in the backseat of your Cadillac. These dreamy, sultry and sexy colours scream a Summer night out at the movies with looks to kill. Get ready to feel the heat on and off the screen as you sport these six new shades that are truly silver-screen sensations. Don’t forget the popcorn, and we cannot wait to see your Summer looks that truly pop!”
