Backstage at Kate Spade Spring 2013
Kate Spade has always been known for her ultra-feminine collections, and this time was no exception with frilly frocks of pastel and gingham. The very sweet collection, that reminds me of a time where record players, drive-in movies, and milkshake shops existed, was complimented quite nicely with a gingham nail look from Deborah Lippmann. There were various shades of gingham, including orange, mint green, pink, yellow, and blue (pictured above), but they all started with a base of Lippmann's Amazing Grace (an opaque white). From there the stripes were painted on, using I Kissed A Girl* for the pink version, My Prerogative* for the blue version pictured, It Girl* for the yellow, and Lara's Theme for the orange. For the mint green version, Deborah mixed together Amazing Grace, On The Beach, and Yellow Brick Road for the perfect shade.

*My Prerogative is from the She's Always A Woman set.
