Creatures from the Deep

Backstage at Jen Kao

If we saw a stingray out for an evening swim, we’d turn and go the other way. But the unsuspecting underwater villain provided inspiration for clean, nude nails at Jen Kao’s spring show. So now we’re thinking maybe the guy just got a bad rap.

Shelena Robinson, CND’s overseer of fingertips backstage, describes how to get the look:

First, apply a base coat of sheer metallic (models wore Gold Shimmer Effects).

Add a layer of a creamy nude, like Pink Lily.

Finish with a matte top coat for a soft, sharkskin-like finish.
