beauty buzz: alexander wang + sally hansen


Thanks to fashion wunderkind Alexander Wang, our nails will be plenty chic this spring. That's when the collection of nail polish he created in collaboration with Sally Hansen for his S/S 2012 show will hit stores. Including three shades - Oxblood, a deep aubergine, Parchment, a milky neutral, and Petrol, a blue black - the collection is dark, moody and will go with everything in your wardrobe.

Into the Gloss got the details from Sally Hansen's Jin Soon Choi backstage at Wang's show:
"Sally Hansen and Alex worked together on a nail collaboration—they come out in April. There’s three shades: Parchment, Petrol, and Oxblood, and they were completely inspired by him. He gave them his fabric swatches from the collection. Today we used Parchment, and only one coat, no base or top coat, because he doesn’t want to have a really high gloss. I think it’s going to be cool to mix dark colors with bright colors for spring: hands bright, toes dark…I think it will be very very cool."
Also, check out a behind-the-scenes video of the collection and interview with Wang after the jump.
