Kate Spade Fall 2013 Fashion Week: Get Fierce Claw Nails

Nail stylist Deborah Lippmann‘s artistic creation for the Kate Spade Fall 2013 show nails were Studio 54-inspired spiky talons. She created her signature “stiletto nails” style in two colors for the show and both styles truly complimented the retro collection! To get the punchy pink shade, the nail team started with two coats of Deborah Lippmann’s Amazing Grace, an opaque pure white shade. For dimension, a coat of pink I Kissed A Girl was added over the white before the fuchsia topper Between The Sheets. Deborah explained that layering the different shades of pink let the blue undertones really shine through for a multidimensional effect. The edgy black nails seen on other models had a vinyl record black sheen, created with two coats of Deborah Lippmann’s Fade To Black.

These almond-shaped nails are all about precision. Deborah explained that the edgy gold pyramid stud that adorned each nail was placed precisely 1/8th of an inch above the cuticle.

Makeup for the Kate Spade presentation was done by Jouer Cosmetics. Makeup artist Neil Scibelli explained that the fresh look was one of the “totally modern New York girl.” Perfect dewey skin, jet black winged liner, and powerful red lips referenced the collection’s disco theme but turned the style into an easy-to-wear New York City chic style. Jouer’s Complexion Perfector evened out the models’ skin tones for the most gorgeous glow. For a “true red” look, makeup artists used Jouer Lipstick in Simone for mega impact.

Garnier Lead Hair Stylist Tommy Buckett explained that the retro hair at the Kate Spade show was all about volume and hold. “It’s very crafted, definitely not beachy,” he explained to us as he added hot rollers to the models’ hair for bounce and body. Get the look with the Garnier Fructis collection including Sky Hi Volume Mousse.
