Get the Runway Look: Christian Siriano - New York Fashion Week Spring 2014
From the red carpet to the runway, this nail brand is helping to set the season's trends. Celebrity manicurist and Red Carpet Manicure Brand Ambassador, Lisa Logan, recently collaborated on the nail art looks with fashion designer, Christian Siriano, for his latest showing at New York Fashion Week.

Red Carpet Manicure strutted down the runways as the official nail sponsor of Christian Siriano's Spring 2014 show. Held at The Eyebeam Atelier just this past weekend, Lisa Logan collaborated with Siriano to create a custom, color-block manicure that highlighted the theme of the collection.
"After seeing the colors and prints and collaborating with Christian, I knew we had to do something that was as dramatic and powerful in the lightest way possible to match the collection itself," said Logan. "Red Carpet Manicure's products are so easy to work with and enable not only manicurists like myself, but the everyday consumer, to translate trends seen at New York Fashion Week into nail art statements."
Utilizing existing colors, Logan prepped each nail with "Fake Bake" for a base color, and intricately color blocked the nail with small boxes made with "The Perfect Pair," underneath which she layered "White Hot," adding an extra pop to the neon yellow.
Christian Siriano's Spring 2014 collection is primarily inspired by a recent trip to Mexico's Isla Mujures, which translates to the island of women. Siriano was influenced by the shapes and imagery of grass-lined huts, picturesque color-blocked residential streets, stonework and the locally abundant dahlia.
Who knew a high fashion manicure was so easy to snag! If you're loving the nails enough to model them yourself, getting this look is super easy. Red Carpet Manicure polishes can be purchased at Target, ULTA Beauty, and tons of local drugstores.
What makes the line so popular among both everyday women and the fashion elite? Red Carpet Manicure launched September 2011 and is the world's first at-home professional salon LED light activated gel polish system.
