Jessica Tong at A Détacher S/S 2017


At the A Détacher Spring/Summer 2017 show, Lead Nail Artist Jessica Tong finds her inspiration in sophisticated New York City women—the same women that would wear A Détacher. As such, she keeps the nails simple yet makes a bold statement (for the spring and summer months, that is) by using a deep, smoky lavender hue. “We went with one color for both the toes and fingers, but I think that’s where the boldness of the look comes from,” she shares. “It’s a statement color unto itself and the darker shade gives that feel of the downtown streets and a SoHo woman.” The color de jour: NARS Nail Polish in Manosque. To get the look, apply Smith & Cult in Basis of Everything followed by two coats of Manosque and finish with Smith & Cult in Above it All. —Molly Church
