Now that her youngest child is three years old, Real Housewives of New York City's Kristen Taekman is finding a fun and fashionable way to fill her time: by launching a nail polish line. Pop of Color will launch on May 1st and Kristen tells Glamour that she couldn't be more thrilled.
"I'm really, really excited," she says. "[My husband] Josh had this great relationship with Ricky's in NYC—he sells eBoost there—and my name sort of came up, and Josh was like, 'She loves nail polish' and the people at Ricky's were like, 'Awesome, let's do a nail polish line!'"
The fashionable star also promises that the whole process of her new venture will be shown on the latest season of RHONY, which premiered last night. "You get to see the whole process—like picking the names of the colors, which is really funny because I asked some of the other girls for their advice on that. It was very interesting some of the names that they came up with," she laughs. "We're talking sexually-charged names! I'm like, 'Uh, I don't even want to repeat that word, let alone name my polish that color.'"
The former model has always had an eye for style and fashion and reveals that the whole idea stemmed from her fashion blog "Last Night's Look," in which she broke down some of her most memorable looks from the show. "It's been a fun outlet, especially now that my daughter's in school," she says of the nail polish. "It's fun this day in age to make your own job. Even though I'm not getting paid."
