Peter Som Paints It Mint Green And Orange-------
“Nail art is not going away,” Deborah Lippmann told us last season, and if there’s one thing we can already report from the backstage trenches after two days of shows, she continues to be correct for Spring. Lippmann brought her own high-design touch to Kate Spade today, where she churned out a series of multicolored gingham prints with polish, but it’s a continuation of the artful French manicure that she previewed at Donna Karan for Fall that seems to have staying power. A mattified, black-on-cream iteration stole the show at Tanya Taylor yesterday, and this morning at Peter Som, it was an orange-on-mint green version that had everyone talking. Custom-created for Som, two coats of Zoya’s pastel lime Neely were topped with a bold stroke of the mandarin Sharon. Both will be sold in a trio kit with Jacqueline, a creamy beige, starting…now: The limited-edition collection launched right after Som’s 10 a.m. show and will be available at www.zoya.com while supplies last.
