About the Collection & Inspo for My Mani
“David Bowie and glom rock”—the inspiration behind the latest Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2020 Collection—just calls to me. KISS Brand Ambassador, Gina Edwards, designed the nail art for the Rebecca Minkoff NYFW Show, creating stunning black tips with dazzling metallic stars.
This week’s mani of the week draws its inspiration from Edward’s nail look plus the studded leather and standout plaid pieces in the Rebecca Minkoff Fall 2020 Collection.
What You’ll Need
To create this look I used:
Step 1: Select the right size nail tip for your nails from the KISS Halloween Salon Color Nails in Bonfires*.
Step 2: To help polish adhere to the nail tips, apply Maniology Sticky Base Coat to each nail before you work on it. Work on one nail at a time so that the polish doesn’t completely dry.
Step 3: On the thumb nail, stamp the words RM x KISS onto the nail using the Moyou London Typography 03 Stamping Plate, TwinkledT ‘Glow Up’, Clear Jelly Stamper ‘063 Scarlet Letter’, and Clear Jelly Stamper Big Bling XL Stamper.
Step 4: On the pointer and ring nails, create a plaid design by stamping each line using the Uber Chic Pretty in Plaid 01 Stamping Plate, Clear Jelly Stamper ‘063 Scarlet Letter’, and TwinkledT ‘Glow Up’ and ‘Lowkey’, and Clear Jelly Stamper Big Bling XL Stamper.
Step 5: On the middle and pinky nails, apply rhinestones vertically down the middle of the nail using the rhinestones from the KISS Salon Secrets Nail Art Starter Kit*. Adhere the rhinestones with a small amount of the nail glue provided in the KISS Halloween Salon Color Nails in Bonfires* package.
Step 6: Apply, Moyou London Smudge Resistant Premium Top Coat to the nails that have been stamped (thumb, pointer, ring) to protect the designs from smudging.
Step 7: Apply the KISS Nail Art Sealer Top Coat from the KISS Salon Secrets Nail Art Starter Kit* to all nails.
