Look Good Naked: The Stella McCartney Manicure

-------

nailsManicurist Madeline Poole was on hand backstage at Stella McCartney to paint models’ nails with a flesh-colored polish—a task that seems quite simple, but is in fact rather challenging considering that nude does not in fact equate to light beige (a point Christian Louboutin and Clinique recently underscored with collections of shoes and makeup). Choosing a nail lacquer is similar to selecting a foundation in that you need to consider both the opacity and the color, Poole explained. Based upon the state of your nails, you may want to prep with a primer (an opaque formula) and layer it with a “tinted moisturizer” of sorts (a sheer pink). Poole coated fingertips with unique combinations of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cafe Au Lait, Nude Now, Shell We Dance, and Shore Enough according to each girl’s skin tone. And at $8 a bottle, you can afford to experiment and find your perfect match.
