NYFW A/W 2017: Deco Miami for PH5

by Beth Livesay | February 9, 2017

Fashiion Week has officially begun in NYC. Lead nail artst Elina Ogawa (@elina_nail) led the Deco Miami team in creating a simple dotticure for PH5. Here's how the team created the look.

1. File naked nails to rounded tips, filing so that the length of nails are to the edge of the fingertip.

2. Polish naked nails with one coat of Deco Miami’s dual top and base coat and let it dry.

3. Using a large balled dotting tool, place colored lacquer onto the nails in bold circles. Placement was alternated to the tops and sides of the nails. PH5 founder Wei Lin and designer Mijia Zhang chose Black Like My Soul, Tequila Sunrise, Don’t Call Me Baby Girl , Male Tears, and Tied Down  for these circles as they best represented the colors in the Fall/winter 2017 collection.

4. Once the circles have dried, top with one last generous coat of Deco Miami’s dual top and base coat and let the coat dry. For more of a “gel” look, add a second top coat.
