She’s Got the Look: Jin Soon for Sally Hansen at Prabal Gurung – MBFW ss 2012

No detail was left out to ensure Prabal Gurung’s showing was a cohesive collection.  Beautiful purples dominated from clothes to lips to nails.

Did you know Prabal Gurung collabs with Sally Hansen each season on a new color specific to his collection?  For ss 2012, he created a dark, nearly black yet glowing purple called “Loves-Me-Not” in the Complete Salon Manicure formula that is a stunner.  Celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi took it one step further and layered the dark over Sally Hansen’s Lacey Lilac Xtreme Wear base. You can see better detail on the sample nails in the photo below:

“Loves-Me-Not” becomes available on counters everywhere Sally Hansen is sold around April 2012.

For the runway, the manicures were applied on the spot.  Jin Soon shared with me how to get this look, and you can do it at home or salon as well.  It is similar to the CND Moon nail that was my favorite of all time so you know I am all over this look. Watch the video and see why Jin says the Sally Hansen brush is made for this type of art:

Like it?  Will you try it?

A look at Gurung’s collection gives you an idea of how perfectly this nail completed the look.
