Described by lead manicurist Patricia Yankee as “million dollar nails”, the richly hued, metallic and crystal encrusted China Glaze manicures seen at Alon Livne’s NYFW Fall/Winter 2014 presentation were steeped in luxury!
The four China Glaze shades, including What Are You A-Freight Of? from the upcoming Fall 2014 collection and core collection favorites Queen B, Gossip Over Gimlets and Goldie But Goodie, were hand-selected by designer Alon Livne to perfectly complement the ornate details of his Fall/Winter 2014 collection. This is the 2nd season that China Glaze and Alon Livne have worked together for NYFW.
Models lined up for a gorgeous presentation, adorned in stunning Alon Livne designs with two thin coats of sultry black-brown crème What Are You A-Freight Of?, regal blue-purple crème Queen B, platinum shimmer Gossip Over Gimlets, or rust gold shimmer Goldie But Goodie on their nails. Nails were first shaped and buffed using IBD White Padded Filesand EzFlow Sand Shark II Pro Buffers, and then polish was topped with the award-winning Seche Vite Fast Drying Top Coat and a light spray of China Glaze Fast Freeze Quick Dry. The metallic polishes Gossip Over Gimlets and Goldie But Goodie were encrusted with Swarovski crystals for added sparkle and drama.
“It was important to me that the embellishment in my collection was reflected in the nails. China Glaze did a gorgeous job of highlighting the colors and feel of the collection,” said Livne.
