J.Hannah is the LA-based nail brand that beauty editors love

Posted by for Beauty

Stemming from its sustainable jewellery collection, J.Hannah is a line-up of muted yet impactful nail polishes.

With another lockdown pending, a lot of us are cracking open our at-home nail kits to see what can help make our quest for an at-home salon-grade manicure a bit easier.

As well as the right tools, the quality of your nail polish makes a huge difference to the finished result of any manicure. Ideally, you should opt for something that isn’t too thin as this can lead to streaks, nor so thick that it leaves your nail bed covered in gloops. Most importantly, you want a formula that leaves a layer of gorgeous colour with every brushstroke. That’s where LA-based nail brand J.Hannah comes in.

You may have seen the brand’s chic lettering, stylish rectangular bottles or on-trend colours on your Instagram feed and in just a few years, it has shot up to become a favourite among many beauty editors.

So, what’s so special about it? The lightbulb spark for the brand came when founder Jess Hannah inherited some of her grandmother’s vintage jewellery pieces. From there, Hannah created a sustainable jewellery collection, using 100% post-consumer recycled 14k gold or sterling silver and gemstones that are either recycled or ethically-sourced.

Soon after, Hannah set out to compliment adorned hand selfies with a wardrobe of high-quality nail polishes for the colour-adverse. From Coahuila clay and Japanese candies to ink pigment and dried rice, Hannah has taken colour inspiration from unlikely but incredibly interesting sources as well as artists’ palettes and natural elements.

Every polish is non-toxic and cruelty-free and when you cast your eye over the colour selection, you’ll quickly realise it’s hard to whittle it down to which shade to pick. Here, the Stylist team tried their best to pick their favourites – no mean feat…
