OC is always inventive and experimental and this season focused their lense on nostalgia.
The Fall 2015 collection featured
the ease and effortless cool of
Spike Jonze photography in iconic
prints. Silhouettes AND attitudes
were confident, as exemplified in the
modern aesthetic of graphic, printed
nails in unexpected pairings.
Two of the three nail looks were
inspired by the classic Kodak color
bars and four color printing process
for perfect color calibration.
The styles are called: "CMYK" -
representing the four classic color
categories in perfectly precise striped
patterns intricately hand painted
on each nail. All nails were shaped
to medium length soft squares and
articulated in two distinct patterns:
The vertical stripe is more masculine,
with black as the base and clean
primaries on either side.
The horizontal stripe leans more
feminine, with a brighter, more
vibrant color pallet.
The CMYK colors were polished in
VINULUX® Weekly Polish in:
'C' - (cyan) Seaside Party
'M' - (magenta) Wildfire and Rock
'Y' - (yellow) Bicycle Yellow
'K' - (registered black) Black Pool
Plus saturated tones of white (Cream
Puff) and grey (Asphalt) to complete
All colors popped 3-D on a base
of clean, bright Cream Puff white.
The third look was a film strip nail
we call 'Homage'... named to honor
the Spike Jonze photographic
inspirational montage of skater
friends captured in action. Our ace
nail team featured a different piece
of the montage on each nail and
then decoupaged it onto a Cream
Puff base with CND® Super Shiney™.
The image was framed with a handpainted
film strip meticulously
placed on each nail.
270 hours... a football field of striping
tape and enormous focus and passion
made these nails truly unique and
