On Friday, September 5, OPI joined Charlotte Ronson at Lincoln Center for the designer’s spring/summer 2015 presentation. Lead nail artist Miss Pop created a nail look showcasing negative space, with alternating cutout half moon shapes. To complement the collection’s feminine color palette, which included blues ranging from pastel to navy, soft mint and cream, Miss Pop used That’s Hula-rious! to create the look. This never-before-seen pastel mint OPI hue is slated to launch in February 2015 as part of OPI’s Spring/Summer 2015 seasonal collection.
For the nail look, each model sported one hand with the pinky, middle and pointer fingers featuring a painted nail with a natural half moon, and the ring and thumb fingers featuring a natural nail with a painted half moon. On the other hand, the look was reversed, with the pinky, middle and pointer fingers featuring the natural nail with a painted half moon, while the ring and thumb fingers had the painted nail with a natural half moon.
Toes were lacquered in one coat of Bubble Bath; each model’s big toe was painted with a daisy falling toward the nail’s free edge. To create the daisy, the following shades were used: Put a Coat On It! (petals), Jade is the New Black (stem), and Barefoot in Barcelona layered with Need Sunglasses? (flower center).
Both manicure and pedicure looks were prepped with OPI Base Coat and finished with OPI Top Coat.
The following day, OPI partnered with Dion Lee to create a striking nail look for the designer’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 runway show at Hosfelt Gallery. On trend for spring, 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.
Each model’s hands were painted with one coat of Base Coat to start. One vertical stripe was painted on the outside side of each nail with two coats of My Signature is DC, and the look was completed with Matte Top Coat.
The look for the toes was the new nude – Matte Top Coat. OPI Flex buffer was used to lightly buff nails, and then Matte Top Coat was applied to provide a polished, powdery finish.
