NAILS BY KISS – NYFW SS19 – Christian Siriano

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. The show transformed New York City’s Gotham Hall into an avant garde paradise.

“I wanted the collection to feel playful, colorful, bright and romantic with femininity but still powerful and exciting,” notes Siriano. Lead Manicurist for KISS Products, Inc., 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.”

Turn Your Garden Into An Art Gallery

The company best known for putting art on tents have launched a range of framed wall art specially designed for outdoor use. Add a new design dimension to gardens, patios, conservatories and back yards with Outdoor Art!

Designed specially to be hung outdoors, Outdoor Art can be placed in any outdoor location with direct exposure to the elements. Utilising their knowledge of outdoor materials FieldCandy have created wall art that is 100% waterproof, durable, UV fade resistant and wind resistant up to 60mph. This is achieved by swapping the traditional timber frame which can warp in an outdoor environment for a much more durable frame made from Aluminium, which doesn’t twist, warp, rust or degrade.

The range includes licensed designs from fantasy artist Anne Stokes and the “World’s most famous Graffiti” courtesy of Banksy, plus plenty more designs curated by FieldCandy. With over 200 design in the collection, covering themes from street art to sea views, there’s something for everyone.

Pictured from left to right: Camden Maid, Moonstone, Pink Jelly, Highland Cow.

Outdoor Art retails from £159 to £375. See all the designs at https://www.fieldcandy.com/shop/home-garden/outdoor-art.

  • FieldCandy is part of the Hubaco family which includes world-leading tent brand Terra Nova Equipment – holder of multiple Guinness World Records.
  • Founded in 2011, FieldCandy launched with a range of totally unique and colourful tents, providing the creative streak that was missing from the camping industry. FieldCandy has since blossomed to include a wider range of leisure products and apparel, designed and many proudly made in England and sold worldwide.
  • FieldCandy have forged global partnerships with designers Paul Smith and Liberty of London, music artists Iron Maiden, Kelis, David Bowie and The Beatles Yellow Submarine. Corporate partnerships include brands such as Sony, Vans, Indian Motorcycles, Anne Stokes and Brandalised.
