This year’s Met Gala theme was campy, the exaggerated, over the top version of something. Celebrities went all out on the pink carpet.
I had the pleasure of working with singer, song writer, Solange. This is our 5th go round and I must say it was an unexpected stream of appraisal. Salvatore Ferragamo created a custom python jumpsuit with matching boots for her Camp look. When I saw the photos of her look and the nails she wanted, I knew I had to have the fabric to match too. Ferragamo made it happen and gave me some scraps to execute the nails she wanted. Through time and patience, I was able to create a nail look that took to social media like wild fire. I was shocked. Who knew that it would be so overwhelming received. I just wanted to make her happy and complete the look she wanted and got so much more.
She helped to make all of this happen once she posted the picture. Thank you Solange!!
There were a lot of amazing nail looks from my fellow nail techs on a night where we all got the credit. My hat goes off to them because they were workkkiinnggg. 🙌🏾. Here are some of the work from some pretty amazing manicurist
So until next year, Happy Met 2019!
