The Nail Art at Kenzo x H&M Is Not for Pussies

Like a tiger-striped catsuit for your fingertips

Prior to last night’s heated debate, there was another rumble in the jungle thanks to H&M’s latest collaboration with Kenzo. With a runway performance of epically energetic proportions directed by none other than Jean-Paul Goude, models, dancers, and more stomped to the beat in layers upon layers of vivid tiger stripes. While the FU staff was immediately taken with the branded opera gloves teased by the fast-fashion powerhouse, we’re now leaning towards the fingerless option—if only to show off the wild and colorful designs spotted on catwalkers’ fingertips care of polish pro Naomi Yasuda. The manicurist freehanded big cat-inspired stripes with a skinny brush atop fiery red, emerald green, electric blue, taxicab yellow, and Pepto pink base coats. If the thought of detailing your nails makes you want to claw your eyes out, consider slapping on an applique like Jamberry Nail Wraps in Pretty Kitty. Even better: You can immediately start braiding a sleek set of pigtails (like those crafted by hairstylist Anthony Turner) without running the risk of a smudge.
