Somewhere over the runway, designers bundled not one, not two, but all of the colors of the rainbow into cheery pieces that might not come with a pot of gold, but certainly will have you looking like a million bucks. These pigment-piped wares are not your typical odes to the elusive ROYGBIV arch. Think: a corset interwoven with rainbow bright ribbons at Dolce & Gabbana or a strategically placed cascade of gargantuan rhinestones arranged into a spectrum-approved ombré at Jeremy Scott. Materializing as groovy waves at House of Holland, bands of literal wording at MSGM or vivid stripes couched by black at Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini, these new multi-hued takes on the trend certainly present you, the nail artist, with a variety of ways to chase the rainbow with your nail art. Guest artist Jessica Tong-Ahn spun the color wheel in two different directions, minimalist and over the top: as a 3-D bloom of hues, creating a rainbow effect with various rhinestones, and as simple hand-painted striping designs. Tong-Ahn proves that this trend offers a rainbow of options.
