On Wednesday October 19th, Kenzo and H&M held a runway show to present their first collaboration. Notable front-row guests included Elizabeth Olsen and Lupita Nyong'o, who were treated to a colourful spectacle from head to toe. Dancers, beatboxers and musicians also took part in the event, helping put forward the vibrant spirit of the collection.
Although it was difficult to divert our attention away from the collections colourful pieces, we did notice that models finger nails were decorated into colourful, tiger striped manicures. Pink, tangerine, green and yellow polish was layered with small black stripes that mimicked the fur of one of the jungle's most impressive predators.
Animal prints have been making a comeback recently, with Kendall Jenner sporting a leopard print jacket that gave us some serious fashion inspo, and gave us more reason to try out Kenzo x H&M's tiger printed nails.
KENZO X H&M: TIGER PRINT MANICURE TUTORIAL
Ready to re-create this original nail art? Get your hands on a base coat, a bright coloured polish of your choice, black varnish and a clear top coat. Now read on to start painting!
Start off by trimming your nails with a nail file to ensure they're equal in length. Avoid back and forth strokes, as this could damage and break your nail. Then, using a manicure block, buff your nails to create a smooth canvass.
Fill a tub or bowl with warm, soap water. Soak your hands for about 10-15 minutes, then dry them with a towel. Apply a clear base coat to your nails then wait for it to dry.
Using the bright coloured polish of your choice, apply one coat on each nail. Let it dry then apply a second coat for a brighter colour.
Once your polish has dried, it's time to take on the tiger print. To do this, you will need a black varnish and a precise brush. Start by making slightly curved lines from the outer edges of your nail and work inwards to the centre of the nail.
Allow the black polish to dry, then layer it with a glossy top coat. This will add shine to your new nail art, while extending the life of your manicure.
