For spring, Charlotte Ronson’s inspiration was clear and omnipresent: the ocean. From beachy hair by Aveda to aquatic prints on the clothes, marine influences were abundant, but perhaps best portrayed by the nails. Color Club's lead technician, Simcha Whitehill, used three different shades of polish to convey the ocean at different depths: Gossip Column, the darkest shade that symbolized deep waters; Seaside Surf, the turquoise hue that represented “the waves the surfers are in”; and Take Me To Your Chateau, the lightest hue that referenced the waters at the shoreline.
The coolest part of the manicure, however, was the new technique that Whitehill used. Taking the polish brush, she painted the smallest side of a makeup sponge and waited for the color to seep into the sponge’s pores so that the effect was “fuzzy, foamy, and soft.” She then dabbed each color onto the nail in vertical stripes to create “waves” in varying shades.
