With a line-up of over 100 models, our wonderful Jessica Nails Hands on Team, led by top session techs – with a joint social media following of over 17K – worked at four designer London Fashion Week shows over three days. The Autumn Winter 2019 catwalk celebrated the fierce female, and Jessica Nails was backstage to shout about it.
Eudon Choi’s signature earthy caramel and toffee tones were punctuated with azure blue, green and tangerine in varying fabrics from tweed to velvet. The designer chose Jessica Nails Phenom in Cashmere Crème for the nails, which manicurist Pebbles Aikens and the Hands on Team smoothly and precisely applied, finishing with Finale Shine to add glossy luxe to the nails.
Malene Oddershede Bach
At Malene Oddershede Bach, manicurist Joanna Newbold created a sumptuously warm autumnal nail with Jessica Custom Colour in Toasted Pecans with a half-moon in Phenom in Gold Vermeil, for the models to sashay down the stunning leaf-strewn runway.
Fashion East – Yuhang Wang
At Fashion East’s Yuhan Wang, the cherub-like models nails dripped in pearls. Manicurist Lauren Michelle Pires and the Hands on Team painted the nails in Phenom Dare To Dream with Finale Shine top coat, before delicately placing on tiny pearls (tip: Brow by Mii’s Definitive Slanted Tweezers were used) that graduated in size from the fingertips down the fingers and onto the skin, like pearly rain drops. Breathtakingly simple nail art to complement the ‘softness is power’ theme by the designer. Picked by Elle magazine as one of ‘the best nail looks from fashion week AW19’.
David Koma’s strong female warrior designs took a leaf out of a Shakespeare play – dramatic costumes with fanciful butterflies and snakes woven out of silver thread. With a palette of scarlet, black, white and navy as the backdrop, manicurist Ami Streets was instructed by the designer to create a ‘mannequin effect’ on the nails – so the Hands on Team played with a family of sheer neutrals – Phenom in Pink A Boo and Angel topped with No Shine Matte Finish – for a natural nail to flatter every skin tone.
