Nail Inspiration: CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show
Last night, Paintbox artists (led by our talented creative director Mabelyn Martin) had the privilege of designing the nail looks for the 2019 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund Show. Learn about the inspiration and concepts behind each finalists' manicure and congrats to Christopher John Rogers for taking home the top prize with his models wearing our holographic champagne sparkler: Like Magic.
+Christopher John Rogers // We love how Christopher John Rogers embraces his Southern roots, and his pieces are always met with glamorous whimsy. Like Magic was the perfect polish to accentuate his collection. Part-champagne, part-rose gold–this show-stopping glitter truly comes alive with holographic flecks that shine in every light.
+Reese Cooper // Reese Cooper is a storyteller, and we’re so psyched that we collaborated on a very strong (but minimal) nail art design, feature our cherry-red lacquer Like Desire in a French shape with ultra modern negative space. This femme fatale design has a cinematic element to it and screams powerful and sexy.
+Tre by Natalie Ratabesi // Our most intergalactic polish is Like Future a megawatt silver with three different sizes of glitter flecks for a dynamic, multi-dimensional effect. We’re proud to pair this manicure with Natalie’s luxe, rich fabrics–both the colors and the icy silver represent modern formalwear at its finest!
+Collina Strada // For Collina Strada, we collaborated by using our mossy green Like Wild shade. We’re big fans of Collina Strada’s efforts towards sustainability, and this earthy tone perfectly reflects this mission. Our dark green is a client favorite in our studio, and we’re excited to see it come to life with Hillary’s brand.

+Barragan // Our cherry-red Like Desire is our sultriest shade in our range–it’s a slightly warm-toned cherry that’s universally flattering. It’s so amazing against Victor’s line–with cool modern shapes and silhouettes routed in Mexican culture. The fiery coral red blends with his aesthetic effortlessly.
+Private Policy // Our slate, grayish blue shade Like Rain is moody, stormy, and interesting. We call the denim shade a fresh new neutral, as it makes a stylish statement amongst any style (without completely taking it over). We’re huge fans of the genderless brand and believe this denim shade is universally flattering–on any/all genders. We aim for confidence and acceptance via nails and Private Policy shares the same mission.
