Ever since we found out that Sally Hansen and Prabal Gurung were teaming up for a nail sticker collab, we’ve been in a total daze. We know we’ll never be able to afford anything from Prabal’s KILLER spring 2012 collection (sadface times a million), but now we can at least wear his runway creations on our fingertips! The New York-based designer created two purple-y hued prints based off his NYFW collection, which are perfect for spring. All of the looks from Prabal’s line were inspired by Japanese artist Nobuyoshi Araki, and he transitioned the edgy-meets-girly vibe from his womenswear collection into nail art seamlessly. The first design is a marbled black, lavender and pink floral print, which is perfect if you’re not too into the whole sporting-flowers-on-your-nails thing but still want a touch of springy fun. The other design features violet Morning Glories sketched on a white background for a fresh new take on the floral trend. If you’re having a hard time deciding on which design to buy, we TOTALLY support buying both packs and alternating the patterns on each finger. What? If you’re going to do nail art, at least go all out!
If you’re not familiar with Sally Hansen’s Salon Effects nail strips, they are pre-polished nail stickers that you size up to your nail, stick on, file off the excess, and then you’re done! There’s no dry time at ALL (which we love), and the kit even comes with a nail file and cuticle stick. They’re available right now at drugstores nationwide for $10 bucks, but hurry, they’re available for a limited time only!
