As the exclusive nail sponsor of Stella McCartney Collections in 2014, Sally Hansen glided down the catwalk at Stella McCartney’s Summer 2015 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week. To accessorize the effortlessly elegant and fluid silhouettes in the designer’s collection, Sally Hansen’s Global Colour Ambassador Madeline Poole created a coolly minimalist, nude manicure with a twist by giving flesh toned polish an unexpected matte finish.
Showing that understated colours can make a fashion statement, Poole paired Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat with flattering nude shades from the Complete Salon Manicure collection to give the glossy manicure a chic velvety matte look.
“The idea for the matte nude nail came from referencing the true sheen of a natural nail,” says Madeline Poole. “As an unpainted nail is generally more satin or matte in finish, we were mimicking this surface. In the end, the result is dusty and bare like the cheek of a porcelain doll.”
