The Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2017 collection pulled inspiration from a strong and rebellious individual, which echoed throughout his collection with industrial detailing and embellishments. Rita Remark for essie used this inspiration to create a “concrete” nail look, which Rita said symbolizes the “foundation that allows your individuality to shine.”

Products Used
