Behind the Scenes: Sally Hansen at 3.1 Phillip Lim SS17
for 3.1 Phillip Lim SS17
Sally Hansen is proud to be the exclusive nail partner for 3.1 Phillip Lim and to create the custom nail look for the Spring 2017 fashion show during New York Fashion Week.
“For Spring 2017, I wanted the nails to feel stark and dynamic. To avoid a “white-out” effect, metallic is layered on top to evoke the collection’s hardware and inspiration. The overall effect is brushed – as if done by the hand of a young girl – but still elevated, refined and accessible,” explained Phillip Lim.
“Keeping in mind the various references of 3.1 Phillip Lim’s Spring 2017 collection from Western to Victorian, we came up with a nail that is accessible yet elevated. Not just a solid color, but a white with a metallic overlay. The result is an optical, three-dimensional texture. The metallic is inspired by the hardware, elaborate studding, and zippers from the collection.” – Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador
Get the Look:
- To prep nails for a flawless finish and beautiful color, Madeline Poole also uses Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover and Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab for clean and hydrated nail beds.
- The nail is painted in two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Let’s Snow
- Then lightly brushed on top with strokes of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilty Party.
- Top it all off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat to help even out the surface of the nail look.
**Just a side note… I have used the Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover & it really does work! No more clipping those cuticles (which is a big NO, NO!)
