Backstage Beauty: Sally LaPointe Spring/Summer 2015

2014 09 05 12 59

For many, spring signifies a time to clear out the winter cobwebs and make a fresh start. At Sally LaPointe the beauty encompasses that same spring freshness and takes inspiration directly from the collection, which “is all about new beginnings and a blending of traditional and new,” shares Morgan Taylor key nail artist Danielle Candido. “[Sally] has moved away from what she had been doing, which was very structured and utilitarian. This [collection] is much softer and flowing in the way the materials lay, but the clothing still has substance, and I wanted the nails to reflect the same thing.” Some of the duds contain neoprene, so Candido blended lacquers to mimic the material’s textured sheen effect. To create a subtle, metallic shimmer, she mixes equal parts Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquers in Something to Blog About, Scene Queen and Make It Last Top Coat. To finish the look, she tops the concoction with Morgan Taylor in Mattes A Wrap. “We [created] the effect of the lavender that is present in the collection (but it’s not in your face!), and it has that matted top coat so it gives the nail that neoprene look,” she explains. —Molly Church
