"Old Money" - new collection of Liquid Gels

Inspiration for our newest collection of Liquid Gels came from the term "Old Money" - if you ever wonder how history inspires our nail products, in this case, please read on.

"Old Money" is a term often used to describe families or individuals whose wealth was established several generations ago and has been passed down from generation to generation. In the context of the United Kingdom, this term holds particular significance given the country's lengthy history of aristocracy, landed estates, and familial inheritance.

  1. Aristocracy and Landed Estates: In the UK, many "old money" families are associated with the aristocracy. Traditionally, these families owned vast tracts of land that generated income through rent and agriculture.
  2. Education and Social Connections: "Old money" families often sent their children to prestigious private schools and universities, such as Oxford and Cambridge. This not only ensured a high standard of education but also helped cement social connections.
  3. Culture and Etiquette: Individuals belonging to "old money" often adhere to strict etiquette rules that differentiate them from the nouveau riche. They may also have particular pastimes such as hunting, horse riding, or art collecting.
  4. Investments and Philanthropy: Instead of spending on conspicuous consumption, "old money" families often invest their resources in long-term assets or engage in philanthropy.

The concept of "old money" in the UK is tied to a long-standing history, traditions, and culture that set these families apart from those who have recently acquired their wealth. It's more than just a financial status; it also reflects a certain lifestyle, values, and education.

  1. Scarlet Desire: Luxurious scarlet gowns were worn only by the highest-ranking ladies of the aristocracy at royal balls. This color symbolizes passion, opulence, and status.
  2. Soft Taupe: Reminiscent of the sophisticated leather upholstery of ancient libraries and vintage books, this shade takes us back to the times when knowledge and education were a matter of pride among the "old money."
  3. Beige Embrace: Elegant and noble, beige dresses were popular among aristocratic ladies who favored a refined and understated style.
  4. Wine Symphony: Wine is an art, and each bottle tells a story. This rich shade reminds us of old winemaking estates and exclusive wine cellars.
  5. Spicy Tango: This deep and passionate shade is inspired by the exotic dances that were popular at the turn of the century among the aristocracy.
  6. Apple Glaze: This intense red shade is inspired by the "Red Delicious" apples, which have long been considered a symbol of abundance and luxury. Bright and juicy, these apples adorned the tables at majestic balls and receptions among the aristocracy, underlining their status and exquisite taste.
  7. Redwoods: This deep shade of red reminds us of the powerful and majestic redwood trees that stood on the lands of ancient estates, symbolizing the strength and resilience of the family.
