Sally Hansen for 3.1 Phillip Lim

September 2016

Sally Hansen is proud to be the exclusive nail partner for 3.1 Phillip Lim and to create the custom nail look for the Spring 2017 fashion show during New York Fashion Week. “For Spring 2017, I wanted the nails to feel stark and dynamic. To avoid a “white-out” effect, metallic is layered on top to evoke the collection’s hardware and inspiration. The overall effect is brushed – as if done by the hand of a young girl – but still elevated, refined and accessible,” explained Phillip Lim.

 

THE INSPIRATION

 “Keeping in mind the various references of 3.1 Phillip Lim's Spring 2017 collection from Western to Victorian, we came up with a nail that is accessible yet elevated. Not just a solid color, but a white with a metallic overlay. The nail is painted in two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Let's Snow and then lightly brushed on top with strokes of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilty Party. The result is an optical, three-dimensional texture. The metallic is inspired by the hardware, elaborate studding, and zippers from the collection." – Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador

Let’s Snow and Gilty Party are part of Sally Hansen’s award-winning Complete Salon Manicure collection that infuses trend-setting shades with an expert-quality formula to deliver a professional nail look at home. Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure boasts seven benefits in one bottle, plus a flawless finish brush for easy application and a salon-quality finish. The polish features base coat, strengthener incorporating a keratin complex, growth treatment, salon color in runway-ready shades, top coat and gel-shine finish, all resulting in up to 10 days of chip-resistant wear and up to 64% stronger nails. To prep nails for a flawless finish and beautiful color, Madeline Poole also uses Sally Hansen Instant Cuticle Remover and Sally Hansen Cuticle Rehab for clean and hydrated nail beds, and tops it all off with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat to help even out the surface of the nail look.
