Christian Siriano debuted his Spring/Summer 2019 Collection at New York Fashion Week, featuring an exotic “twisted zebra” nail look — using imPRESS Press-On Manicure Medium Length Nails in Black, and KISS Nail Artist Paints. (You can totally recreate the look!)
Inspired by the perfect Hawaiian dream vacation, Christian Siriano’s Spring 2019 Collection brings the spirit of the island to life with bold tropical and animal prints, playful brights and textured details. The show transformed
New York City’s Gotham Hall into an avant garde paradise.
“I wanted the collection to feel playful, colorful, bright and romantic with femininity but still powerful and exciting,” notes Siriano.
Lead Manicurist for KISS Products, Inc., Gina Edwards, transported models to Siriano’s fantasy locale by creating an exotic nail look for the show using the imPRESS Press-On Manicure Medium Length Nails in Black as a base. Edwards then used the KISS Nail Artist Paint in Gala to create a multi-dimensional zebra-like effect.
“Everything about Christian Siriano’s Spring/Summer 2019 Collection felt fresh and fun, so I
wanted to play off of that with an abstract nail,” said Edwards. “I dubbed this nail the
‘twisted zebra,’ a modern take on the animal print trend.”
What’s great about KISS products is you already have the base read with these press on nails. It’s great if you want to change up your mani! Plus kits are super affordable. All you need to do is go to CVS and get the kits! Plus the nails from the show are super easy to do.
