Runway Nails: Paul Andrew Spring/Summer 2016


Here’s another backstage look at the runway nails from the Paul Andrew Spring/Summer 2016 runway show this past September’s New York Fashion Week.  This design looks extremely familiar.  I’ve definitely created similar designs.  Glad to know i’m on trend. 🙂

Runway inspiration:

Paul Andrew drew inspiration from modern Hong Kong for his Spring/Summer 2016 collection. To complement the designer’s vibrant color palette and rich textures, Julie Kandalec for essie created a striped, metallic nail look with no place like chrome.
