Get the Look (NAILS): Betsey Johnson NYFW SS16

"The Curious Case of Betsey Johnson" is a celebration of Betsey Johnson's 50th year in fashion. It was the party of the "half-century", the Betsey Johnson way! Live music from the DJ, champagnes all around,  tons of balloons and lots and lots of tutus backstage.

There were 25 models showcasing the 5 decades of Betsey Johnson fashion. When it came to hair and makeup and nails, they have narrowed it to 3 looks to make it easier backstage for the stylists to get it done in less than 2-3 hours.

Morgan Taylor lacquer lead artist Danielle Candido came up with three nail art designs that complements the outrageousness of Betsey Johnson.

Look One
Rock the red sparkles!
According to Danielle the first look is "Everything Betsey"
It's her homage to Betsey; on what she means to her from doing the nails, 
"Everything I see her as and through our (Morgan Taylor Lacquer) colors..."

  • Use one coat of Pretty Woman (red shade in creme finish)
  • Followed by one coat of New York State of Mind (multi-colored dark glitter)
  • Then 2 layers of red glitter Rare As Rubies
  • Finish with Make It Last topcoat.

Look Two
Graphic mod print.
Mod Look for the 60's and 80's era in the show.
"She (Betsey Johnson) wanted something bold, something striking. There's a lot of black and white and a little bit metallic in the line...And color blocking is ideal for the look." 
- Danielle Candido

  • Using All White Now on all the nails
  • then creating various sized lines with Little Black Dress
  • completed with silver metallic accent lines with Could Have Foiled Me 

Look Three
Psychedelic marbled mani that focuses on bright pinks and blues.
"Each nail has a different design and a different pattern to it"
Using the watermarbling effect to get the different designs on each nails.
The nail polishes that were used are as follows:
All White Now (white creme shade)
Don't Touch Me I'm Radioactive (bright medium blue shade)
Pink Flame-ingo (bright neon pink)
Sitting Pretty (pink creme shade)
Don't Worry Be Brilliant (bright coral neon creme shade)
Water Baby (baby blue creme shade)

For the short amount of time the nail artists have backstage, all nail arts were done on artificial nails, days before the show. 

These are such fun nail looks just like Betsey Johnson's collection is.
So which nail look will you want to rock for Spring 2016?!?
