‘Capri Cool’ Nail Art at Christian Siriano S/S 2017


For his Spring/Summer 2017 show, Christian Siriano whisked attendees away to the Isle of Capri, an island in the Tyrrhenian Sea off the coast of Italy. Drawing inspiration from vintage photos of Jackie Onassis vacationing in Capri in the late ’60s-70s, Siriano’s collection featured elegant, neutral pieces for the sophisticated and well-traveled woman. To complement the ‘island getaway’ feel of the collection, manicurist Gina Edwards used KISS products to create a bold asymmetrical nail art look using turquoise, black and white. “The colors are vibrant and fun, perfect for the spring/summer season,” says Edwards of the design. (See Edwards ‘Capri Cool’ look for Christian Siriano below.)
