Kate Spade Spring/Summer 2014 
Each season, the Kate Spade collection inspires us to create a bold, fashion-forward nail look.
Inspired by a cap-toe shoe, which Kate Spade is well known for, the long nails were across between a stiletto and almond shape – an “almond-etto” as we coined it — that was soft and feminine, but with an edge.  The look was comprised of three finishes – matteen, shimmer and crème – to help bring the inspiration full circle.
Here’s how to get the manicure designed for their Spring/Summer 2014 show. 
Start with our Gel Lab Base Coat on long nails with slightly pointed tips and apply two coats of Pseudo Silk Kimono, a milky alabaster white with a matteen finish, launching in November. 
Inspired by a cap-toe shoe, the tip of each nail is painted with Bad Moon Rising (a pewter shimmer from the Big Bang holiday set launching in October. 
A thin strip of color will be painted below the pewter shimmer tip, serving an accent and transition to the matteen white base to complete the look. 
The accent strip will be the same for all ten nails in one of the following shades, which depends on the model — It’s Raining Men, a timeless Parisian red, Groove Is In The Heart, a flamingo pink, or Walking On Sunshine, a lively luminous lemon that is launching in Summer 2014.
