IT’S A RAINBOW RIOT

When one of fashion’s most daring designers partners with China Glaze® Nail Lacquer and the My Little Pony franchise, the look is sure to be a rainbow riot. Color abound at the DEGEN presentation during Spring/Summer 2016 New York Fashion Week. China Glaze® nailed the look as models showcased their eclectic manicures in shades hand-selected by the designer Lindsay Degen in collaboration with lead manicurist Casey Herman to complement her fun and funky creations.

On Monday, Sept. 14, models showcased DEGEN’s latest collection wearing a variety of custom-made China Glaze® nails inspired by My Little Pony and applied by Herman and team. Herman created a stable full of different design combinations for using a mix of core China Glaze® shades including You Drive Me Coconuts, a bright pink jelly, and vibrant royal blue Sky-High Top for the Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash eyes that accented each manicure, respectively. Other colours used included a rainbow of core China Glaze® shades including:

China Glaze® Product Used:

  • Sun Upon My Skin – soft yellow crème
  • Home Sweet House Music – neon orange crème
  • Pop the Trunk – bright red-orange crème
  • Don’t Mesa with My Heart – vibrant violet pink crème
  • Lotus Begin – neon purple crème
  • At Vase Value – bright baby blue crème
  • Grass is Lime Greener – neon lime crème
  • Snow – crisp white crème

Just as with the hair and makeup looks for the show, the nails were loaded with a variety of glitter polishes for extra sparkle including It’s a Trap-Eze, a milky white base loaded with multi-colour glitter; opalescent hex glitter Make a Spectacle; and best selling holographic micro glitter Fairy Dust. Herman describes the inspiration: “I always love partnering with China Glaze® and DEGEN for NYFW as I know the nails are going to be unique, challenging and, most of all, fun! This season was no different. My goal was to bring to life designer Lindsay Degen’s collaboration with My Little Pony through the nails which were a mixture of all things girly and bright – rainbows, cupcakes, flowers, glitter and of course loads of color which China Glaze® does so well. Each model had a variety of designs accented by the eyes of either Pinkie Pie or Rainbow Dash My Little Pony and their respective ‘cutie marks’”.
