Here’s a cool design that strutted the runway at the Sophie Theallet Spring/Summer 2016 show.
Using new colors from the essie fall collection Leggy Legend!  Also a great look that would be perfect for Halloween!

Runway inspiration:
Taking inspiration from Sophie Theallet’s African themed Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Julie Kandalec for essie created a modern crocodile nail design with shades licorice and leggy legend. The earthy hues complemented the designer’s color palette while also providing an eye-catching, metallic pop of color to the overall look.
