Runway inspiration:

Rebecca Minkoff, fashion designer and essie’s Global Color Designer, crowd sourced three nail looks created by Michelle Saunders for essie this season. The winning design, “lucite sunset,” was directly inspired by the chunky lucite heels found throughout the Spring/Summer 2016 footwear collection. The pastel polish shades also perfectly complemented the color palette.

Get the look:

  1. Apply first base coat to clean, filed nails
  2. Next, trim a makeup sponge in half and use the side that’s more narrow to create the ombre sunset
  3. From top to bottom, layer the sponge in thin, horizontal lines with tarte deco, marshmallow, beach bum blu and midnight cami
  4. Sponge ombre sunset pattern on each finger, making sure tarte deco is always at the base; colors will need to be reapplied to the sponge every other nail
  5. Then, apply one coat of spaghetti strap over each nail to “soften the sunset”
  6. Finish with gel setter top coat
