Color Blocking for Fall with Sally Hansen

With fall right around the corner (as signified by the hefty September issues of the fashion and lifestyle magazines stacked up on my desk), now is the time to get a jump start on your fall look. What better way to do that then by making your nails pop for the fall season than with color blocking?. According to the experts at sally hansen, color blocking nails is a perfect way to add instant depth and trend to your style. Colors can be monochromatic, metallic, bright, whatever style fits your look. Please see below for two looks created by Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Madeline Poole for the Fall 2016 runway shows (held this past February) for DKNY and Phillip Lim 3.1. Also explained below is how to get the looks and the Sally Hansen products used to create them.

Sally Hansen was the proud exclusive nail partner for Phillip Lim and create nail looks for his Fall 2016 fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

THE INSPIRATION

Phillip Lim’s new collection was inspired by Japanese craftsmanship, elegant lacquered wood, samurai sword embellishment, and even lipstick packaging. The location is intimate, secretive and lit by red light, evoking an underground performance or fight club. I thought immediately about a tradition I had once heard from the Heian period in Japan when ninjas would paint the symbol of their clan on their thumb. I wanted the nail look to feel symbolic and to have a striking contrast, hence the use of metallic with the beige shade, but to also work with the palette of the collection – a traditional autumnal array of olive green, mustard and burgundy. We did a circular optical illusion in Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Commander in Chic and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilty Party on half of the girls and an oval shape in Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Camelflage and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilty Party on the other half. The oval shape was inspired by the hardware on the bags and belts.” – Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador Continue reading
