NYFW Nails: Strategic Stripes at LaQuan Smith

Cuccio Colour wrapped up its second New York Fashion Week with the LaQuan Smith presentation on Wednesday. Named one of Forbes "30 Under 30," Smith's collection was an array of textures and eye popping brights and his Fall/Winter 2015 collection was highlighted in the New York Times within hours of its debut.

  Smith chose two nail designs for his models. Elaine Watson created the first using Cuccio's Tel Aviv About It. She then applied strategically placed black stripes on each nail in varying locations for an alternating pattern using 2am in Hollywood. The nails were finished with Cuccio Nail Solutions High Shine Top Coat.

For the second design, Tel Aviv About It was also used as the base color. Cuccio Nail Solutions High Shine Top Coat was applied and a string of fine black beads was set down the center of the nail at the cuticle extending all the way to the free edge. Another application of the top coat was used to set the string in place.
