alice + olivia’s Spring/Summer 2020 presentation is a modern bohemian field of dreams. At this season’s show, designer Stacey Bendet’s fashion dreamscape unfolded in a series of nine transportive sets, each revealing a realm of the SS20 collection. In each brightly hued world, colors converse in a sherberty palette, inspiring elevated fashion right down to the fingertips.
“When the colors are right in a space, you exhale and tune into your own interior. I dream in color and these rooms are fashion dreams come to life,” Stacey Bendet noted about this season’s show.
Lead Manicurist for KISS Products, Inc., Gina Edwards created nail looks inspired by the lilac saturated florals and blooming pink clouds of the SS20 presentation using KISS Glam Fantasy Nails and KISS Salon Acrylic French Nude Nails. Accents were handcrafted using KISS Nail Art Paints in Lilac and White and KISS Salon Secrets Nail Art Starter Kit.
”I instantly felt transported to a dream land while creating looks for alice + olivia’s Spring 2020 Collection,” said Gina Edwards. “ I wanted to celebrate the fantasy feel of the collection with a fresh, whimsical take on classic nails.”

A Korean-American company headquartered in New York, KISS takes great pride in being a global leader in professional quality beauty products and treatments, with brands available in over 100 countries worldwide.
Inspired by the power and excitement of life-changing beauty breakthroughs such as the handheld blow-dryer, which allowed women to break ties with the beauty parlor, Mr. John Chang–who started KISS as a tiny beauty supply business–has made it his mission to find ways to make life simpler & easier for all. With his world-renowned team of scientists & product developers, the KISS founder’s passion is to invent DIY beauty products that save women a tremendous amount of time, effort and money.
Empowering women to “bring the salon home” and express their personal style, on their terms, is the KISS WAY since day one, and it has thrived beautifully over the past 30 years.
Among many notable KISS accomplishments, the first DIY glue on artificial nail was met with rave reviews, but by far, the company’s shining star is the press-on nail. Featuring patented SuperHold technology and an amazing gel finish, this innovation literally revolutionized the beauty industry, giving women the ability to complete a much sought after gel mani, in minutes, with reliably long-lasting results.
KISS is also a major player in the false eyelash business. In fact, new technology and styling methods and trend-setting designs have made KISS a market leader in lashes, with a huge customer and celebrity fan base.
Most recently KISS celebrates its Korean heritage with JOAH, a complete collection of Korean beauty cosmetics which are quickly becoming award-winning best sellers.

So excited to be invited to attend Self Portrait SS19 NYFW show at Spring Studios!
It was an amazing show, and I already know that Self Portrait never makes me feel bored. I personally love their dresses so much. Both my graduation exhibition’s opening and Marriage Registration, I chose Self Portrait to wear. Of course I have gotten so many compliments for the beautiful dresses.
This year, Self Portrait continues its modern fairytale style, but adds more bright colors. I love them and looking forward to having them when they are on market.

Inspired by the perfect Hawaiian dream vacation, Christian Siriano’s Spring 2019 Collection brings the spirit of the island to life with bold tropical and animal prints, playful brights and textured details. The show transformed New York City’s Gotham Hall into an avant garde paradise.
“I wanted the collection to feel playful, colorful, bright and romantic with femininity but still powerful and exciting,” notes Siriano. Lead Manicurist for KISS Products, Inc., Gina Edwards, transported models to Siriano’s fantasy locale by creating an exotic nail look for the show using the imPRESS Press-On Manicure Medium Length Nails in Black as a base. Edwards then used the KISS Nail Artist Paint in Gala to create a multi-dimensional zebra-like effect.
“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.”
