Kork-Ease: A Wedge in Time

Vintage Kork-Ease
The infamous Platform Wedge, created by Kork-Ease, has climbed to the top of the Stairway to Heaven and back… Since their rising popularity in mid-’70s, Kork-Ease shoes have graced the floors of Studio 54, dressed the feet of Betsey Johnson, and just recently earned their spot as one of the 25 shoes featured in the Landmark Shoe Collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute!!! Check out our favorite Kork-Ease looks from the Spring/Summer 2012 Collection.

NCLA: Nail Couture, Los Angeles

ncLA Electro, $16
ncLA Secession Strikes, $16
ncLA I See You, $16
DIY – Easy as pie!!! 
Supplies Needed: ncLA nail wraps, base coat, top coat, nail file, baby scissors
  1.  Just like a normal mani, start by applying the base coat (let it dry!)
  2.  Choose each nail foil that fits closest to your nail size. Peel the nail foil from the sheet.
  3. Apply round side towards cuticle. Stretch and remove all excess foil around the shape of the nail (this is where baby scissors come in handy!)
  4. Apply pressure to smooth out any bubbles or wrinkles in the foil. Remove any excess foil with a nail file, using downward strokes.
  5. Apply top coat (let it dry!) and it’s a wrap!!
Some Insider Tips: 
  • Re-apply top coat 3-4 times, then once daily to get that shiny, shellacy look!
  • You don’t have to use the entire set all at once.. I like to pair mine with a fun color to really make the wraps pop! Check out NCLA Nail Lacquers below… 
  • Be creative and have fun with it!!!
