BARNEYS x GAGA’S WORKSHOP EVENT OPENING feat. NAOMI YASUDA:
Last night, November 21 Barneys opened it’s doors with a pre-party extravaganza and first look of the exclusive GaGa’s Workshop. New York based celebrity nail artist Naomi Yasuda was one of the chosen vendors, with a display showcasing her limited edition designs exclusive to Barneys only. Lovely mannequin hands currently grace (4) of Naomi’s limited designs made possible by the KissUSA brand, who worked tirelessly for 2 months to manufacture and package the final result. Those interested can purchase them for $45 per package and limited to 500 pieces each.
The four KISS designs include:
“Black Studs”- adorned with an array of silver/gold studs
“Chain Gold”- deep red with gold manicure trim and chain & stud detail
“Grey Nude”- a cream base with geometric grey design, stud & silver
“Multi-Color”- the most detailed in design boasting swarovski crystal and
gold chain trim
The collection also features (2) amazing limited nail sticker designs manufactured through the Minx Nails brand. The new application technology for these graphic stickers retail for $35 each with only 500 units made.
Lastly are the creme de la creme hand crafted marvels. Painstaking work went into these which took over 2 months to complete. 30 pairs each were made (16 nails in each set) and available for $225 each. A total of 1,440 nails were cut and painted with semi-precious gemstones & swarvoski crystals applied. Each is packaged in it’s own personalized logo box with confetti packaging. Three designs were created:
”Flames”- these nails were inspired by Lady GaGa’s outfit worn to the 2002 VMA’s. Each nail was hand cut, painted and detailed with semi-precious red stones.
“Gold Objects”- filed to the perfect point, these gold painted gems are adorned with a variety of nail charms ranging from- unicorns, guns, skyscrapers, Lady Liberty to name a few.
“Black & White”- a zig zag celebration of perfection with craft fully placed gold trim and gem stones.
