If last month I brought you the color story of MAC Nail Transformations Summer 2014 Collection, a creation of Marian Newman, now I’m back with the visuals. I know there will be some price differences as other bloggers posted different info, but I based my info directly on what is written in the MAC Update Book for summer. Perhaps MAC will make some price changes but here in my country this is what the update book says.
Marian Newman is a nail artist who has worked in almost every area of the industry. Starting by opening a salon in 1987, she progressed into consultative work for some of the largest nail companies in the UK. There have been “Marian Newman Nails” at fashion shows such as Givenchy, Viviene Westwood, Valentino, Moschino and McQueen, to name a few. Marian’s very first fashion show was to create 12″ spiral nails for McQueen at Givency. She has done nails for more than 50 British Vogue covers has spent 10 years working on every advertising campaign for Christian Dior. More recently, she created the nails on all the “Interlude” films for Lady Gaga’s Monster Tour.

I’ve announced the new NARS Phillip Lim Fall 2014 Collection (sneak peek) since last winter but now, a month away from the launch date we can finally enjoy in detail all the new shades. Not quite the brightest shades of all if you are looking for such a manicure this summer because the limited edition Phillip Lim nail polishes are more drawn to the shadows so that makes them perfect for Autumn.
For Fall 2014, NARS Cosmetics introduces an exciting nail collaboration with famed fashion designer Phillip Lim. The 3.1 Phillip Lim for NARS Nail Collection includes nine limited edition nail shades inspired by the “colors that exist in the shadows.”
Rich jewel tones and contrasting neutrals in a long-lasting formula with a high-gloss finish evoke the modern mood of the season, while a covetable canvas pochette designed exclusively for NARS perfectly fits the season’s well edited nail wardrobe.
NARS and Phillip Lim have a long standing relationship collaborating over the past 14 seasons on the 3.1 Phillip Lim runway show during New York Fashion Week since the Fall 2007. The collection combines Phillip’s signature style with NARS’ iconic and audacious beauty philosophy.
