Clinique‘s Dramatically Different Moisturizing Lotion has long been a staple in makeup bags worldwide since its launch in 1968, but who knew its trademark yellow shade looked so pretty when re-purposed as nail polish? To celebrate the new ultra-hydrating formula of the brand’s hero product, Clinique has created a limited-edition nail lacquer, which they’ve aptly-named Yellow Genius. In addition to mirroring the lotion’s iconic pale lemon color, the nail polish boasts skincare benefits of its own — the formula was developed specifically for sensitive skin types, so it won’t trigger any unexpected reactions around your cuticle area, or if you happen to rub your eyes.
