The theme for the Jeantrix Fall 2013 presentation, “Lucid Dreams,” certainly called for trippy nail art. Lead manicurist Rose Velez immediately connected “trippy” with the psychedelic color-changing capabilities of La Palm Products’ Gel II Reaction gels. “These gels are the perfect foundation for the project,” says Velez. “The natural ombré quality of the gel polish takes care of half of the nail art! I mixed medias (Gel II colors and nail art striping paint/brushes) to create texture that accented the ombré left by the Reaction colors.”
Jeantrix designers N¥ce and Hømm asked for stiletto-shaped nails, and Velez then crafted five unique designs that mimicked the frenetic prints and colors found in the collection’s avant garde wares, allowing the gels’ shade-shifting technology to determine the end result: richly textured and creatively hued.
