Often misunderstood, Disney villains are enrobed in mystery, seduction, and intrigue. The Blonds aim to unravel the complexity of these iconic characters within their SS19 collection runway show. Phillipe and David Blond were inspired by these flawed symbols and translated them in a bold, luxurious way, taking the tragic heroes of the most breathtakingly beautiful dark fairytales and putting them center stage for the Spring/Summer 2019 show.
For SS19, nails were longer and conveyed danger down to the very last razor-sharp stiletto tip. In the style of The Blonds, this season’s nails were a mix of bold textures including sleek, shiny eel-like skin, reflective metallic fragments, and three-dimensional embellishments.

This bespoke set is made up of individually curated nails in this Dalmatian obsessed-villain’s usual fashion – eye-catching, dramatic, and full of spots and pops of blood red.
