Hey there nail enthusiasts!
Fashion Week officially kicked off on February 11, 2016!  So with that being said.. stay tuned ’cause I’ll be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest and greatest nail trends to hit the runways!

To kick it all off we have some looks from the Wes Gordon Fall/Winter 2016 show featuring Essie nail lacquers!  Take a look!


Runway inspiration:
Wes Gordon’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection is inspired by “downtown romantics and effortless elegance,” and is a celebration of the designer’s favorite things, pieces, techniques and ideas. To pair with the black, white and grey hues, Rita Remark for essie created a nail look that mimicked broken glass by layering set in stones over hors d’oeuvres.
essie nail products used:

  • ridge filling base coat
  • sand tropez
  • hors d’oeuvres
  • set in stones
  • gel.setter top coat

Get the look:

  1. Apply ridge filling base coat to clean, filed nails
  2.  Next, apply one coat of sand tropez
  3.  Then, layer one coat of set in stones over one coat of hors d’oeuvres to create an ultra shiny reflection on the nails
  4. Finish with gel.setter top coat

Expert tip: use gel.setter top coat over glitter polishes to ensure the glitter stays in place longer
