Men’s Fashion Week always offers something tantalisingly different, and Samuel Ross’ theatrical catwalk at Brick Lane’s Old Truman Brewery was no exception. It saw dancers and dogs emerging from a dark black water abyss running along either side of the runway, while the models walked in a slow sombre procession, turning back once to look behind them, before progressing into an uncertain future. The juxtaposition of fluidity and structure, light and dark ran through the entire show. The nails, led by Pebbles Aikens accompanied by the Jessica Hands On Team were designed to give a light reflective mirror-like shine to reflect the water-dripping-effect on the models’ skin.
Jessica’s Gentlemen’s Club range is designed to give men perfectly groomed cuticles, hands and nails.
Buff Cuticle Gel was used to gently eliminate excess cuticles, leaving the models nails neat and natural. Nails were filed, following the natural shape with a Natural Nail Company Professional Emery Board. Matte 4 Men Matte Conditioner and Treatment was then applied as a base coat to leave a creamy matte healthy look to the nails, before one brush stroke of Brilliance Top Coat was applied to the centre of each nail. This gave the mirrored effect when the catwalk light caught the centre of the nail.
