Ami Streets creates cartoon mani for Katie Eary LFW show
By Kat Hill | 21 February 2018 | Events, News
Cartoonish, pop-art inspired nail art was selected for Katie Eary’s London Fashion Week showcase. Created by manicurist Ami Streets, the look saw a hot red nail tone courtesy of iZ Beauty of London, complete with white detailing to create an animated effect. The design a super shiny finish to create a vinyl-like quality.
Katie Eary’s collection saw a collaboration with the girly cartoon characters, The Power Puff Girls, to create fun-filled, rodeo-inspired looks. The collection saw bold patterns and tomboy cuts in bright shades of aqua, greens and red – The Power Puff Girls’ colour trio.
Recreate the look with Ami’s step by step…
- “The first thing I always do when backstage is ensure all models hands are clean and fresh. Try iZ Beauty of London’s brand new Peppermint Hand Gel. I then ensure the nails have been shaped evenly.
- “Next, I applied a coat of the iZ Beauty of London Camo Coat. The base coat acts as a primer, smoothing any ridges to ensure smoother application of your polish.
- “I started the look by painting the nails with two coats of iZ Beauty of London nail lacquer in Hot Chilli.
- “Once dry, I then added a white stripe down the side of the nail to give the illusion they were 3D, using iZ Beauty of London nail lacquer, Competition White. I used a striping brush for extra precision and control. I then used a dotting tool for the dot at the end the line to ‘highlight’ the look.
- “Once touch-dry, I sealed the colour with a coat of the Gel-Effect Top Coat to add a vinyl-like gloss.
- “Finally, once all nails were dry, I massaged a couple of drops of the Mini Tropical Cuticle Oil around the nail.
