Inspired by the perfect Hawaiian dream vacation, Christian Siriano’s Spring 2019 Collection brings the spirit of the island to life with bold tropical and animal prints, playful brights and textured details.

KISS Products’ lead manicurist Gina Edwards transported models to Siriano’s fantasy locale by creating an exotic nail look for the show using the imPRESS Press-On Manicure Medium Length Nails in Black as a base. Edwards then used the KISS Nail Artist Paint in Gala to create a multi-dimensional zebra-like effect.

“Everything about Christian Siriano’s Spring/Summer 2019 Collection felt fresh and fun, so I wanted to play off of that with an abstract nail,” said Edwards. “I dubbed this nail the ‘twisted zebra,’ a modern take on the animal print trend.”

Get the nail look:

  1. Start with a black base nail using imPRESS Press-On Manicure in Medium Length in Play it Loud.
  2. Find correct size, peel off backing and press on.
  3. Using KISS Nail Artist Paint in White, create pointed tear drop outline beginning at the cuticle and ending halfway down the nail bed.
  4. Fill in the shape with KISS Nail Artist Paint.
  5. Create fine hair-like strokes with a dry brush on the outer edges of the nails.
