OPI joined designer Lindsay Degen for the DEGEN Fall/Winter 2014 presentation. Models wore short, squared tips featuring a blue sky/cloud nail design on all fingers except ring fingers, which were painted with a rainbow atop a chrome, glitter base. The designer selected this bold and colorful nail look to complement bright knits and reflective fabrics. The rainbow theme was continued throughout the clothing and an LED rainbow backdrop.

The nails were created using:

  • Sky nails — Can’t Find My Czech-book (sky), Alpine Snow (clouds)
  • Rainbow nails — Push and Shove layered w/Desperately Seeking Sequins (base); Red Hot Rio, Toucan Do It If You Try, I Just Can’t Cope-acabana, Amazon…Amazoff, Dating a Royal, Next Stop…the Bikini Zone (rainbow)
