SCI FI NAILS

Los Angeles (February 2016) – It was a space odyssey at Opening Ceremony’s Fall/Winter 2016 New York Fashion Week runway presentation at Pier 90 in New York City. As inflatable spaceships hovered over the runway, China Glaze® covered the models nails with a 3D, futuristic feel.

On Sunday, Feb. 14th, Opening Ceremony presented its Fall/Winter 2016 collection that was China Glaze® Nail Artist Naomi Yasuda. Replicating a print on key pieces within the collection, Yasuda topped China Glaze® Sorry I’m Latte, an opaque creamy nude new for Spring 2016, with nail tips cut in an imperfect wave shape and painted with China Glaze® classic metallic Icicle. Yasuda describes the inspiration: “Futuristic. That one word perfectly describes the nails at Opening Ceremony this season. Designed in partnership with China Glaze®, I wanted the nails to be innovative and unique. I was inspired by the molten metal effect in one of the prints and created a liquid chrome design running down a warm latte crème nail. Using a carved tip for the drip design, the nails have a futuristic 3D effect that is really cutting edge.”

To create the design, Yasuda first painted the nails with one coat China Glaze® Strong Adhesion Base Coat, followed by two coats of Sorry I’m Latte. She then cut nail tips into an imperfect wavy shape and applied one coat of Icicle. Tips were applied along the cuticle with nail glue and topped with China Glaze® Fast Forward Top Coat.

China Glaze® Sorry I’m Latte and Icicle are available at beauty supply stores including Sally Beauty and Ulta, MSRP $7.50.
