The nail art scene at NYFW is something that aficionados get excited about… scrolling through every show image on Instagram, waiting for the most original piece of art to don the fingers of top fashion models. This season there’s one look that stood out from the crowd. One look that stopped our scroll, roll. 3D Sculpted & painted butterflies, delicately sat atop the nails at the Alice & Olivia show, oooh em Geeee, guys, look at how special these are!
Kiss Nail Ambassador, Gina Edwards sculpted these tiny monarchs using acrylic liquid & powder. She then hand painted them in orange, purple, green & yellow , added a touch of glitter & some crystals for just the right amount of bling. She also used thread with a little glue at the tip to shape the antennas. Genius.
Designer Stacy Bendet is known to take her shows to an ethereal, magical place and this nail art had us daydreaming and giving us just the right amount of whimsy, we didn’t even know we were looking for.
