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
- Shape and prep nails before applying base coat.
- Apply 2 coats of ORLY EPIX in Hollywood Ending to the entire nail.
- 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.
- Paint the tips of each nail with ORLY EPIX The Blacklist.
- Finish with top coat.
