Sandy Liang’s FW24 collection follows a schoolgirl who grows up into a princess and features pieces that evolve in style. Nail artist Holly Falcone, used a range of famous OPI colors as well as colors from the New OPI Your Way Spring Collection for the show to ensure each model’s manicure color completed their respective look.
Of the nail design for the collection, Falcone had this to say: “For the FW24 season, Sandy’s collection is inspired by uniformity, and we wanted the nails to be an extension of the uniform. This is why we created multiple nail looks using both classic and the new OPI Your Way shades. Each nail look was meticulously matched to a piece in Sandy’s collection.” She added, “coinciding with the uniform suiting fabrics in Sandy’s collection — red, brown, and navy, the final product is a monochromatic look making the nails an official part of the uniform. This also feels very Sandy to me — dedication to a uniform down to cheeky details — like a matching hair clip, phone charm, or manicure.”
Get the Look:
- Start by applying OPI Natural Nail Base Coat to the nails.
- Next, apply two coats of OPI Nail Lacquer in “Buttafly,” “Princesses Rule!,” “Big Apple Red,” “You Don’t Know Jacques,” or “Light my Sapphire.”
- Finish the look with OPI Top Coat for a long-lasting statement manicure.
“The finale look is my tribute to the Sandy girl — a uniformed girl with a secret princess alter ego. I used the OPI Nail Lacquer in *Verified*, a bright, cream blue that gets transformed when layered with OPI Nail Lacquer in Glazed N’ Amused, a sheer effect that provides an iridescent pearl,” said Falcone. She added, “I like to believe that the iridescent pearl is what transforms her into her Princess identity.”
How to Recreate the Finale Look:
- Start by applying OPI Natural Nail Base Coat to the nails and allow it to dry.
- Next, apply two coats of OPI Nail Lacquer in “*Verified*” and allow it to dry.
