NYFW Fall 2017 is already proving to be a great season for nails. From the metallic handpainted stars spotted at Tommy x Gigi to the latest design that walked the runway at PH5’s sophomore presentation, we are obsessed with the play on the peekaboo base.
On Wednesday’s show in Bortolami Gallery, PH5 showed a fresh and colorful take on knitwear and paired the clothes with pops of vibrant hues over a negative space base on the nails. The dotticure is edgy, fun and best of all it’s easy to recreate at home! Keep scrolling to learn how.
Nail artist Elina Ogawa led the Deco Miami team to execute the spot on design.
PH5 founder Wei Lin and designer Mijia Zhang chose five Deco Miami shades including Black Like My Soul (black), Tequila Sunrise (yellow), Don’t Call Me Baby Girl (pink), Male Tears (cloud blue) and Tied Down (oxblood) for the look as they best represented the colors in the fall and winter 2017 collection.
Here’s how to recreate the look:
- File prepped nails to rounded tips, filing so that the length of the nails meet the edge of the fingertip.
- Polish nails with one coat of Deco Miami’s Dual Top/Base Coat, allow to dry.
- Using a large balled dotting tool, place colored lacquer onto the nails in bold circles, placement was alternated to the tops and sides of nails.
- Once the circles have dried, top with one last generous coat of Deco’s Dual Top/Base Coat and let the coat dry. For more of a “gel” look, add a second top coat.
