This season’s phenomenal nail look from longtime Blonds collaborators CND was inspired by the theme of good vs evil, and “Lucifer as a powerful woman”. Frescos, Red spikes, and studs made frequent appearances, in both the nail art and clothing.

TANYA TAYLOR S/S 2017

TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 019

Tanya Taylor’s collections are always a riot of color. I’ve been following her line since almost the beginning of her career. And love that I can always look forward to seeing fantastic patterns, and bright colors in her designs each season. TANYA TAYLOR SPRING-SUMMER 2017 016

The Spring collection’s “island” inspiration was very apparent to the viewer. These were happy, vacation ready clothes, that just viewing made you want to jet off to a far off locale.

As strong as the clothing collection is, Tanya Taylor also consistently features fun, innovative beauty looks each season. While the hair and makeup was more relaxed, and vaction-y, the standout beauty feature of Spring was the funky rainbow wave nail art.

Morgan Taylor Lead Nail Artist Gina Edwards painted each nail with Morgan Taylor New School Nude as a base coat. Next, each tip with hand-painted with half-moon designs, using a selection of multiple Morgan Taylor polishes. Featured colors that were used include Orange You Glad, West Coast Cool, Ahead of the Game, Tropical Punch, Mint Chocolate Chip, Tokyo A Go Go, Sweet Escape, and Deja Blue.

Allen Wood for Bumble and Bumble led the hair team, who created the island friendly hair style, inspired by Tanya’s trips to Cuba and Capri. To get the look: “Mist Surf Spray onto small sections of hair and twist hair around the fingers, alternating the direction of the twist so hair doesn’t become uniform. Blow dry and scrunch hair to create an organic texture. Create a natural center part and tuck hair behind the ears. Once twists have cooled, break up hair by raking with fingers. Finish with Dryspun Finish throughout roots to add volume.” –Instructions via Bumble and Bumble.
