The First Ever Nail Polish Trail

Back in the spring of 2016, we created our first Steelyard-branded nail polish and distributed it at High Point Market. Playing up our Steelie-ness, we debuted two shades of gray which we called Polished Concrete and Smoked Glass. Three High Point Markets and 11 nail polish colors later, we introduced the Steelyard Nail Polish Trail featuring 10 new colors in 10 different showrooms. We encouraged designers to participate in "The Thrill of the Hunt" and visit the showrooms and collect them all.   Julie Talbert showed us her colors:

Each company selected a signature color, drawing inspiration from a new collection, their own branding, or simply what was making them feel good in the season. Here are their choices:

Steelyard had its own color too, a classic dark chocolate brown that we called Heritage. With our 20 year history, we were embracing tradition and feeling a strong attraction to gorgeous walnut, mahogany and rosewoods. We distributed it somewhat under the radar as quantity was limited. The color was being discontinued which I don't understand because it is that good.

Alas, we procured the last batch.
