Orly International storms the nail color barricades with French Revolution, an alternative French manicure—updated and modernized “in anticipation of the millennium,” says Orly’s president Myriam Clifford. The fashion press has declared spring ‘97 the season of romance, with soft fabrics, gentle printing yield florals and the return of long, flowing dresses. To commitment these feminine looks, Orly suggests combining Visible Violet with Lilac Pastel tips or mixing sheer tones, such as its Bare Rose and Soft White Tips. Meantime, the night time shines with body-hugging sequins, uneven fishtail hems, and sheer fabrics. Clients can shimmer like a mermaid with nails in Bronze Metallic with a splash of Gold Lamé or Platinum on the tips.
