I find it very interesting to see nail polish in action, complementing a designer’s clothing style, and I hope that you will enjoy this post highlighting Essie at New York Fashion Week: Days 1 & 2!

You’ll see looks for Spring/Summer 2016 by the following designers: Wes Gordon, Sally LaPointe, and Rebecca Minkoff. (The colours used are listed, in case you want to recreate the manicures.)

    All very nice looks, but I’m crazy about the last one. How did they layer the colors like that? With a sponge and gradient I would imagine. These are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing it with us.

      Hey Melissa!

      Right? It’s such a fun look, and you can customize it to your liking by simply tweaking the shades. 🙂 You could probably do the same technique to create a softer version of candy-corn nails with a gradient.

    Even tho I love everything about makeup (lookng, buying and applying), I’m digging the minimalist makeup on the models. I like how they matched the nails with the outfits so perfectly. The first girl’s outfit/nail combo is my fave — the plaid with lace detailing, sigh… so adorable! Not a look I could pull off, but you probably could, Mary (and no, I’m not crazy and talking to myself in a mirror, haha!) 😀

      Hey Mary!

      Hahahahaha – I know what you mean! I don’t come across too many Marys, but whenever I talk to one and say her name, it always sounds funny to me because it almost sounds like I’m talking to myself. 😉
