Jenny Packham Modernizes 17th Century Opulence With Simple Nail Art

The pared down beauty was simple, but thoughtful at the Jenny Packham Fall 2013 show. Because the pieces in the collection — from the clothes to the jewelry and handbags — were so ornate, the team of hair, makeup, and nail pros left the beauty look a little understated yet elegant.

The look: A loose ponytail with a ribbon, glowing skin, and a gradient glitter manicure
The inspiration: 17th century opulence
Trends: Nail art

Makeup: "We wanted the makeup to look expensive," said lead makeup artist Talia Shobrook, who created the minimal look using Laura Mercier products. There was an emphasis on a glowing complexion, which was attained by using the Mega-Moisturizer Crème all over the skin with a touch of foundation. Shobrook accented the dewy look with lipstick as blush, while Tawny Eye Basics was swept on lids and Caviar Stick in Seashell was drawn along the crease.

Hair: Jeanie Syfu for TRESemmé created a simple, loose ponytail. First, she applied 24 Hour Body Blow Dry Lotion for lift and hold and blow-dried with a flat brush to achieve a straight look. She parted the hair in the center and gently teased the midlengths for a little shape in the back of the ponytail. She let any face-framing layers fall out, and tied the look with a ribbon for that 17th century feel.

Nails: The sparkling nails were created by Gina Edwards for Essie. To complement the lavish jewelry and handbags in the collection, Edwards decided to paint on a gradient nail art design using Essie Luxeffects in Set in Stones. She applied the glitter polish at the center of the nail and then tapped the brush back and forth to the tip to form the cascading look.
