All The Deets Behind These ‘Twisted Zebra’ Nails At Christian Siriano’s Spring 2019 Show

KISS x Christian Siriano

Christian Siriano has partnered once again with KISS to serve up show-stopping nails for his latest NYFW presentation. For his Spring 2019 show, he brought the spirit of Hawaii’s tropical islands to life with vibrant colors and floral prints – and the nail looks were no exception.

KISS’ lead manicurist Gina Edwards transformed the models’ nails to channel the collection’s tropical vibes with a twisted zebra nail look using black medium length nails from the brand’s imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($7.99) collection.


To get the multi-dimensional zebra-like effect, Gina used KISS Nail Artist Paint ($6.99) in white to create a pointed tear drop outline beginning at the cuticle and ending halfway down the nail bed and filled it in.

She then went in, creating fine hair-like strokes with a dry-brush on the outer edges, using a slightly different design on each nail.

“Everything about Christian Siriano’s Spring/Summer 2019 Collection felt fresh and fun, so I wanted to play off of that with an abstract nail,” said Edwards. “I dubbed this nail the ‘twisted zebra,’ a modern take on the animal print trend.”
