Rococo Nail Apparel to Launch All-Nude Line
Meet Ange and Vernice Walker, the sisters behind Rococo Nail Apparel. The duo got their start in nail salons as manicurists, and two years ago created a polish line that now counts Alexa Chung and Agyness Deyn as followers. Since then, the duo has created shades for runway, red carpet, and editorial. And next month, the sisters will launch a collection solely devoted to nude tones, entitled “Nude Wardrobe.” One of the many colors created for the line (or recreated, in this case) is a shade first worn in Roland Mouret’s fall 2011 runway show, called Lab Nude 3.0. Mouret’s memo was to create a shade that was “chic” and “expensive” looking.
The sisters told Elle.com, “We knew it had to be a surreal nude, luxurious but natural to suit all skin tones and the beautiful collection.” The result is a sheer soft pink with a hint of beige, which perfectly paired with the violet, emerald green, and beiges Mouret showed for Fall 2011. With nail polish trends ranging lately from neon to swirling crackled glitter, a line of nude shades is a breath of much-needed simplicity.
The line sells exclusively at beauty addicts’ dream apothecary, Space NK, which will be hosting events with the Walker sisters in their New York and LA stores during the launch of “Nude Wardrobe.”
