LE Launches New Forever 80's ButterCreams!

Forever 80's Banner

Light Elegance, a leading innovator of 100% HEMA-free professional-grade UV and LED gel nail products and acrylic nail systems, today announced the debut of its new Summer 2021 Forever 80’s ButterCream collection.


Right on-trend for Summer 2021, the all-new Forever 80’s ButterCream collection by Light Elegance delivers six new shades perfect to complete today’s styles yet infused with all the passion of the iconic decade that was the 1980’s. Vibrant neons combined with softer neutrals make the Forever 80’s palette incredibly versatile for all clients, no matter how big their hair might be.


Whether decked out in denim from head to toe or showing off legwarmers on a Summer night, the 80’s had a totally rad style for everyone that allowed individuals to feel wild and free. Forever 80’s allows nail professionals to express that freedom in the salon and deliver looks that fill their clients with youth and energy, emotions that never go out of style.


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.


“While we’re always looking forward to make sure our colors are perfectly on-trend with the latest fashions, we often look back in time to places of nostalgia, powerful memories and good old-fashioned fun for our collection theme inspiration. This Summer, one of the emerging trends is neon, and our search for the bright and bold took us straight into the stellar decade of the 80’s,” said Lezlie. “We love the skates, the legwarmers and the mall bangs—everything totally loud and totally awesome! With Forever 80’s, you feel the explosion, excitement and craziness that made the 80’s so iconic and emotion-packed in each of the six new shades.


Join us on this adventure back in time and let these six on-trend new shades deliver styles that make you want to dust off the jean jacket, lace up the skates, release and act loud and free. Forever 80’s will have your clients letting their hair down and expressing themselves in a way that is truly timeless.”

  • Bitchin’: A creamy, bold pink! This pink is not neon, but it definitely isn’t quiet. Bitchin’ leans more towards a cooler tone and makes a statement without being too bright or too loud—it’s totally bitchin’ for your Summer look!

Coverage: Opaque, Effect: Flat/Cream


  • Superfreak: A fabulous bright orange coral! Definitely more on the orange side rather than pink. A bright, creamy orange that is perfect for toes and completing your summer style.

Coverage: Opaque, Effect: Flat/Cream


  • Fresh to Death: A bright, exciting neon green that is both light and happy. This color is not for the timid and adds a great accent to your nail art or outfit. 

Coverage: Opaque, Effect: Flat/Cream


  • Leotard & Legwarmers: A clean vanilla yellow. More vanilla than yellow and lighter than a pastel. This color could fit in the neutral family—a truly fun and different neutral that is understated and sophisticated.

Coverage: Opaque, Effect: Flat/Cream


  • Totally Tubular: A muddy turquoise that leans more towards blue than green. Totally Tubular has just a hint of a grey and muddy undertone that makes it fun, unique and a welcome addition to your color library or look.

Coverage: Opaque, Effect: Flat/Cream


  • Big Hair Don’t Care: A light carnation pink that leans more towards the neutral side with its tan undertone. The fine satin sheen throughout provides a delicate, soft and sweet finish that pairs well with a wide range of styles.

Coverage: Opaque, Effect: Shimmer
