-Felder and Felder
2/3 nailgirls Blue #5 + 1/3 nailgirls Blue #6 + nailgirls matte finish (topcoat) = deep indigo blue
nailgirls Beige #4
We created mannequin nude flesh tones for a clean, natural look.
Inspiration was Undone Glam, the day after the night before. The nails were short and square using foundation nude shade Beige #4 with our matte finish topcoat, giving a totally matte, mannequin colour.
Heavily influenced by Asia, the clothes were cotton candy shades, that followed through to the makeup on the cheeks and colour on the nails. We used two coats of nailgirls Pink#3, with nailgirls superfinish for a wet look.
Supped-up glam androgyny! It was all about the detail, so we used nailgirls Beige #6 on the hands and Brown #2 on the feet. A stripe of bright White #1 down the centre of each toe emulated the tribal influences of the collection.
Palm Spring glamour, with big hair and dramatic eyes and false nails! Kept long and almond shaped, Jenny Longworth used nailgirls Gold #1 and Silver #2 on the base, before dipping them into nailgirls nail glitter and topping them off with nailgirls super finish high gloss top coat.
nailgirls Beige #1, finished with nailgirls super finish top coat and an iridescent powder, to give a UV effect.
1 part nailgirls Red #4 + 2 parts nailgirls super finish made a jellied effect berry colour to match the berry stained lips of the show.
-Fashion East – Simone Rocha
It was a matte finish all the way to complement the natural fabrication yet complex construction of the collection. nailgirls matte finish worn without a nail colour gave the nails an ultra modern look.
-Fashion East – Felicity Brown
1/3 Coral #2 + 2/3 super finish. One coat of this nail colour gave the nails a playful, jellified look, which worked well with this fun, ruffled collection.
All American! Cow girl prints, fringing, sequins and baked bean prints adorned this collection and the nails simply had to follow suit! An elixir of nailgirls Pink #7 and Pink #3 produced the perfect peptobismol pink with hand drawn cow print nail art using White #1 and Black #1. So much fun!
