Nail Envy: Backstage at Katie Gallagher

Nail Envy: Backstage at Katie Gallagher


Katie Gallagher's witchy runway show — titled "The Winter Froze You Away" — was all about a dark winter's night, and she carried the theme out in every detail, from the songs on the playlist down to the paint on the fingernails.

The manicure, like the collection, was inspired by snow falling in the woods. (We love how the dots go so well with the polka-dotted sheer second-skin worn on most models.) It was made using four hues from the Color Club line. All the colors were various shades of gray and black, and one was mixed and made exclusively for Katie, called Dove Grey. The technique? It's DIY-easy! The nail artist backstage used the tip of a dotting pin tool and simply dotted, in small and large sizes, the four colors on the nail in an ombre style.

Would you try this look at home?
