Backstage at the Spring/Summer 2013 Kate Spade presentation, Deborah Lippman created a gorgeous “picnic” inspired look on the models’ nails.
The stiletto-shaped nails were painted in a series of bright gingham check designs, and solid white, to compliment the collection’s 1980’s vibe. Colors used: Orange: “Lara’s Theme”. Yellow: “It Girl”. Blue: “My Prerogative”. Mint Green: a custom mix of “Amazing Grace”, “On the Beach”, and “Yellow Brick Road”. All toes were painted white, using “Amazing Grace”.
To DIY the nail art:
1. Paint nails with base color. 2. After base is completely dry, use strips of Scotch tape to create a stencil, and mark off stripes. 3. Paint stripes in one direction. 4. When first stripes are dry, remove tape, and repeat the process in the opposite direction.
