STUDIO 54 SPARKLE

Los Angeles (February 2016) – China Glaze® took inspiration from the past with the metallic nails at the alice + olivia by Stacey Bendet Fall/Winter 2016 New York Fashion Week presentation at Skylight Clarkson Square. The alice + olivia vision of New York City in the late 1970s was perfectly captured with a sleek negative space arch design in one of the season’s hottest shades – rose gold metallic.

Capturing the 1970s vibe of the collection Nail Artist Miss Pop created a negative space rainbow arch, a key pattern in the collection, using China Glaze® Meet Me in the Mirage, a brilliant rose gold metallic shimmer. Said Miss Pop of the design and inspiration: “This season, alice + olivia's collection is 70s inspired with rainbow lace skirts, bright bellbottoms, and vibrant prints. We wanted to bring that far out vibe to the nail look. Stacey Bendet has been having a moment with dusty rose, a big color for Fall. China Glaze® brought that gorgeous shades to fingertips and added some Studio 54 style sparkle with this rich metallic shade.”

To bring in that 1970s feel and to mimic a swirling print in the collection, Miss Pop used a French tip guide to create a negative space rainbow from the cuticle to the sidewall of the nail, like the curved waves of color on the side of a roller rink. The look was also created using two new shades for Fall 2016 – Jagged Little Teal and Heroine Chic , as well as core shade High Maintenance for three special performers at the presentation.

To create the design:

  1. Apply French guide sticker across the corner of the nail from outer edge to cuticle in a rainbow arch
  2. Apply one coat China Glaze® Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  3. Apply two coats China Glaze®Meet Me in the Mirage and allow to dry two minutes then gently lift sticker

China Glaze® Meet Me in the Mirage is available at beauty supply stores including Sally Beauty and Ulta, MSRP $7.50.
