As the exclusive nail sponsor of Stella McCartney Collections in 2014, Sally Hansen strutted down the runway at the spectacular Stella McCartney Winter 2014 Collection fashion show at the Palais Garnier during Paris Fashion Week. To complement the bold textures and sophisticated color palette of the designer’s Winter 2014 Collection, the Sally Hansen nail looks worn on the runway featured clean, modern, understated shades of nude to flatter the models’ skin tones.

Sally Hansen Global Color Ambassador, Madeline Poole, custom blended colors of barely blush, nudes and sheers from the Complete Salon Manicure palette.  “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. 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.”
