The London Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2016 Backstage Beauty Report: Graphic French Manicure

Designer: Markus Lupfer

Lead Manicurist: Ami Streets for Orly

The Scoop: Ispired by the Mexican desert landscapes that influenced the “playful versus moody femininity” of the Markus Lupfer Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Ami Streets created a graphic French manicure, which she describes as a “toughened up, arid subversion on the classic French manicure.”

How To DIY Markus Lupfer’s Graphic French Manicure

  1. Shape and prep nails before applying base coat.
  2. Apply 2 coats of ORLY EPIX in Hollywood Ending to the entire nail.
  3. While the nail polish is still drying, use tweezers to apply a shard of silver foil at the base of the nail, gently pressing it down so it adheres.
  4. Paint the tips of each nail with ORLY EPIX The Blacklist.
  5. Finish with top coat.
