NYFW Spring 2017 Nails: Glamsquad at Zang Toi

NYFW Spring 2017 Nails: Glamsquad at Zang Toi

09.22.16

By David Simpson

With a collection inspired by the paintings of Claude Monet, designer Zang Toi’s “Glorious Giverny Garden” show captures Parisian influences—both earthbound and artful. So it stands to reason that a French manicure adorns the nails backstage (even if the much-disputed origins of the French manicure may not be traced back to France!). Rather than keep this classic staid (no pink-and-whites here), GLAMSQUAD Lead Nail Artist Christina Quercia edges the fingertip with a thin line of burnished, opaque gold. Quercia starts with a coat of Essie Brides To Be, followed by a coat of Fed Up to create a perfect beige base. She then dresses the tip using a striper brush and Essie Good as Gold. The look is chic without trying too hard—just like French women. —Kristyna Kane
