The “Giles Manicure,” A How-To


As avid readers of this blog already know, we love a good nail here at Beauty Counter; if there are 3-D jewel clusters thrown into the mix, all the better. Sophy Robson’s backstage magic at shows like Topshop Unique, House of Holland, Loewe, and Louis Vuitton has earned her a coveted place on our all-star beauty team, but her best Spring showing, in our humble opinion, was at Giles, where she hand-painted the designer’s signature cartoon googly eyes on top of multi-colored sherbet lacquers. For those of you who want to recreate the adorable mani but need a visual example to proceed, Robson has just released a fun video tutorial in conjunction with London’s Because Magazine to show you how it’s done. You know what? It’s easier than it seems—and provides a super fun holiday alternative to those of you taking a defiant stand against glitter. Click above to watch, and happy polishing!
