Fashion designer Erin Fetherston presented her spring/summer 2016 collection in New York on September 10 at The Shows at the Dock, Skylight at Moynihan Station. To complement her “dreamy ruffles and floral prints,” celebrity nail artist MISS POP crafted the nail designs backstage during NYFW. She detailed how to recreate the look, using affordable nail products found at major retailers.
“Inspired by a muse who is equal parts Jane Birkin and Anne of Avonlea, the Erin Fetherston Spring/Summer 2016 collection’s mood is of Arcadian reverie. Sky blue reigns as the collection’s defining color amidst a palette of earthy pastels and Victorian whites.” MISS POP had the task to accessorize the nails for the line, keeping within Fetherston’s vision.
Using items from KISS Products Inc., MISS POP “played off the minimalist sensibility and scattered blossom prints of the collection.” The celebrity nail artist “hand painted white flower petals on a pale pink base, and then adorned the center of each flower with a cluster of pearls from KISS Salon Secrets Luxe Accents, available at Walgreens, for added dimension.”
To begin, size KISS 100 Full Cover Nails in Active Oval, available at Rite Aid, to each nail. Before applying, paint each nail with KISS Gel Strong Polish in So Hot. MISS POP suggests to use imPRESS Manicure in So, So Stellar, available at Walgreens for a quick application with no dry time.
Next, pour white KISS Nail Artist Paint, which could be found in Walgreens, into a small petri dish or a piece of foil, and then fill a shot glass or small cup with acetone. Using the thin paint brush from the KISS Salon Secrets Nail Art Tool Kit, available at Walmart, dip the brush into the acetone, mix with the white nail paint, and then lightly paint flower petals onto the nail.
“You could use your imagination and creativity here to draw various sizes of flowers and alternate designs,” says MISS POP. “Paint two flowers onto some nails and others with large flowers extending out from the left side of the cuticle.”
Allow your NYFW nail art time to dry, and then using your favorite topcoat, apply over the center of the flower only. Take three pearls, and using the silicone stick from the KISS Salon Secrets Luxe Accents Kit, apply in a triangular shape in the center of the flower.
Finish with topcoat to set the design, and let dry. Adhere to your fingertips according to manufacturer’s directions, and you have magical NYFW nails from celebrity nail artist MISS POP.
