The New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 Backstage Beauty Report: Metallic Stripe Manicures
Designer: Dion Lee
Lead Manicurist: Miss Pop for OPI
The Scoop: On trend for spring, but perfect for the holidays, lead nail artist Miss Pop played with negative space to create a bold nail look featuring a thick stripe of metallic along one side of each nail. Light reflectors were the inspiration for the metallic stripe, providing little flashes of light to catch the eye. My Signature is DC, a lacquer created in partnership with Coca-Cola, picked up the collection’s metallic fabrics, while the contrast of sheer nail to silver complemented the collection’s contrast of fabric textures and colors.
