How To: Noon by Noor Negative Space Nail Look for NYFW SS15

Rebecca Isa, Creative Director of Zoya, gives beauty reporter Celia San Miguel, of Sicka Than Average, the Noon By Noor nail look" how to" backstage at the SS15 New York Fashion Week show and talks about the negative space nail trend emerging for the season.

... the notion of open space was created by brushing on a coat of the Zoya Erin nail lacquer, a soft, sheer, and slightly shimmering beige shade, and then adding a half curve on the inside corner of the nail tip with the Zoya Cosmo Magical PixieDust nail lacquer, a glitzy silver hue. The idea was to create a very soft look that would offer a playful glint as models’ hands were illuminated under the runway lights and the glittery flecks of the Cosmo shade reflected that oncoming light. The shimmering adornment was made using free-hand movements so as not to be too rigid and Isa describes the shape as a “half chevron” but with a slightly more rounded edge thanks to the way the nails were filed. To offer a makeup equivalent of the nail look created, Isa drew the parallel of applying a sheer foundation as opposed to a more opaque formula and then applying a touch of lip gloss. Who knew minimalism could be so lovely? ~ Sicka Than Average
