Karen Walker’s collections expertly toe the line between girly and tom-boyish, interjecting bright, quirky prints that keep things fresh season after season.
For her Spring show’s nail art, Karen wanted a color that screamed “summer”. CND lead nail tech Wanda Ruiz created a custom lemon-lime sherbert color by mixing 2 existing CND polishes.
7 drops of Blackack were added to the bright yellow shade Bicycle, which was painted onto models’ nails in 2 coats. 1 coat of AirDry Top Coat was applied to finish the look.
Careful to note that this style can be dangerous if it veers into “wedding-ish” territory, the look was slightly disheveled, and meant to be a style that could easily be a “cool girl DIY”. The result was one of my favorite hairstyles of the season!
To get the look:
Hair was sprayed with Bumble and Bumble Thickening Spray (a favorite product of mine!) at the roots, then blow dried. Surf Spray was misted over the length of the hair to mattify. Hair was then rolled, and secured with bobby pins. Laurent then roughed up the hair using his hands, to create a disheveled look. Hair was finished with a spray of Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder, in corresponding shade to match the models’ hair.
