“For Spring 2017, I wanted the nails to feel stark and dynamic. To avoid a “white-out” effect, metallic is layered on top to evoke the collection’s hardware and inspiration. The overall effect is brushed – as if done by the hand of a young girl – but still elevated, refined and accessible,” explained designer Phillip Lim.
To achieve the look, Sally Hansen Global Ambassdor, Madeline Poole used two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Let’s Snow and then lightly brushed on top with strokes of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Guilty Party. Describing her thought process she says, “Keeping in mind the various references of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Spring 2017 collection from Western to Victorian, we came up with a nail that is accessible yet elevated. Not just a solid color, but a white with a metallic overlay. The result is an optical, three-dimensional texture. The metallic is inspired by the hardware, elaborate studding, and zippers from the collection.”
