Oscar de la Renta Fall/Winter 2016

Runway inspiration:
When approaching the Fall/Winter 2016 collection, Oscar de la Renta’s Peter Copping derived inspiration from classical 18th century motifs, such as Toile de Jouy. He gave them a modern update by putting them through a “technical pixelation process.”

Alongside a color palette of French blue, oyster, bordeaux, dusty rose, and black, the collection sparked the idea of a vintage look for nails. Michelle Saunders for essie created a well-groomed “vintage glow” manicure that represented health and vigor using shades allure and hi maintenance, followed by a coat of matte about you and apricot cuticle oil rubbed onto the nail to give a “satin” finish.

essie nail products used for manicure:
• first base base coat  • hi maintenance  • allure  • matte about you  • apricot cuticle oil

Get the look:
1. Apply first base base coat to clean, filed nails
2. Next, apply one coat of hi maintenance
3. Then, swipe one coat of allure along the free edge of the nails
4. Finish with one coat of matte about you
5. To create the satin finish, apply apricot cuticle oil around the cuticles; allow to dry and rub onto the actual nail
