Hey there nail enthusiasts!
Here’s a look at the nails in the Oscar De La Renta FW17 runway show at New York Fashion Week featuring Essie!


The Oscar de la Renta Fall/Winter 2017 collection is full of vibrant shades ranging from deep reds to cobalt blues. Creative directors Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim wanted the nail look to appear “high-tech” against the fabrics. Julie Kandalec for essie chose imported bubbly for the look, to create a shiny, reflective gold manicure.

Products Used



Get the look:

  1. Begin by applying first base base coat to each nail.
  2. Then apply two coats of imported bubbly to nails.
  3.  Finish with gel•setter top coat for high shine.

essie pro tip: If you’re afraid of going for a full-on metallic but still want a bit of reflection on the nails, Julie suggests choosing a pearl tone, like imported bubbly.
