Yesterday I went to the Tommyguns salon on Regent Street to meet up with the folks from the Filthy Gorgeous nail salon located in the basement. Filthy Gorgeous collaborated with Gareth Pugh on a look for his show with Marian Newman creating a really messed up French mani for the Gareth Pugh show – ash-tray grey with a ragged moon and sticky stuff for a destructuring effect.
Now, there’s no way I can emulate that talent, so I’ve had a little go at a kind of dirty French mani using FG in Blah, a lime green, FG in Bebee (a really smoky grey) and FG in Prism (a holo). I think it kind-of works..I’m not sure.. but I’m quite pleased with it as a first effort. I want to experiment with other colours and get the moon really smudgy untidy.
