Designer Erin Fetherston has an affinity for child-like fairytales; you can see it in her girly wares—a hallmark of her brand. “Polished, but playful,” “’60s-inspired” and “feminine and beautiful” are just a few qualifiers tossed around backstage to describe the ultra-feminine beauty ideal dreamt up for this collection.
What this all means for nails: adding the most delicate detail to make a striking impression. After Kiss key manicurist Gina Edwards applies Impress Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails in So So Stella to the natural nails, she adds a touch of “fairytale fantasyland” by adorning the ring fingernails with a simple cross. Rather than use a striper brush, Edwards fashions the crisscross with gold striping tape from the Kiss Salon Secrets Rococo Veil Kit—one strip placed down the middle of the nail, the other laid horizontally near the moon. The result: just the right touch of easy, feminine whimsy. —Kristin Oldham Giordani
