Guest Artist Nina Park (@ninanailedit) is a high school English teacher, surfer, Boston Derby Dame and nail artist. THE POWER OF FLOWERS ALWAYS IMPACTS THE SPRING RUNWAYS. THE DEFINING DIFFERENCE THIS SEASON IS HOW DESIGNERS PLANTED THEIR BLOSSOMS ON WARES. Budding appliqués cover up naughty bits at both Blumarine and Erdem, while three-dimensional petals flutter on a gown at Alexander McQueen and sprout on a shift at Fendi. Even 2-D floral patterns feel fresh, especially when they're a little retro: Witness Antonio Berardi's swirling metallic blooms and Valentino's '70s-style leather garden. Just as florals have long been a staple of fashion, they've also found a perennial place in nail art. The key is to change up the technique, as guest artist Nina Park does here with her 3-D tone-on-tone Fendi nail. Polish your base, craft your blossoms from thread or floss, and affix them to the nail, and then repaint the entire design. The effect is subtle and, yes, flower-powerful.
