"Adam Selman’s collection was inspired by a long-forgotten nudist colony in Hawaii, and features bold prints, bright colours and frills to evoke a tropical feel. We wanted to balance the feminity of the clothes with a nail look that gave the girls more of a tomboy edge. The nails were ironically painted with nails: we used the head of a construction nail dipped in Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Dark Huemoor to paint haphazardly placed circles on clear nails. The look feels as if the girls painted it on themselves with a marker, ” says Madeline Poole, Sally Hansen global colour ambassador.
