Sally Hansen Nails Nude at the Stella McCartney Winter 2014 Collection Show

For Stella McCartney's Winter 2014 Collection at the Palais Garnier during Paris Fashion Week, Sally Hansen was the exclusive nail sponsor. To complement the bold textures and sophisticated color palette of the McCartney's Collection, Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole created nail looks that featured clean, modern, understated shades of nude shades to flatter the models’ skin tones.

Madeline Poole custom blended colors of barely blush, nudes and sheers from the Complete Salon Manicure palette (the colors are pictured below) to create the minimal nail looks. “We did a natural slightly sheer nail using various combinations of four shades,” said Madeline Poole. “Colors were layered differently for each model to best complement their skin tone. As different nudes look better on different hands, we wanted to customize each girl’s look rather than using the same nude on everyone."

"Thanks to the all-in-one product Complete Salon Manicure, we were able to skip base coat application and with the larger, rounded brush, swiftly paint the nails so we could also address nail health and cuticle treatment. As most of the models have had a multitude of nail changes over this past month of fashion shows, we wanted to bring emphasis to conditioning and nourishing the cuticles with Sally Hansen's Cuticle Rehab. A little bit of backstage TLC goes a long way."

The four nude shades used listed below according to the above photo:

Complete Salon Manicure in Arm Candy
Complete Salon Manicure in Shell We Dance
Complete Salon Manicure in Almost Almond
Complete Salon Manicure in Pink Pong

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is an all-in-one formula that combines all the 7 benefits of a professional salon manicure—a base coat, a strengthener, a growth treatment, rich color, top coat, gel-like shine and chip resistance —in a single multi-tasking polish. It retails for $7.99 and are available at chain drug stores and mass retailers nationwide.
