Praying for nail inspiration? 😉
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 the nail creations at the Wes Gordon and Sally LaPointe shows were designed by Rita Remark, Essie’s new Global Lead Educator.
The nail art from the Rebecca Minkoff show was done by Michelle Saunders.

At Wes Gordon, Essie’s newly appointed Global Lead Educator, Rita Remark crafted a textured geometric look with the new In the Lobby and Devil’s Advocate combined with the award-winning topcoat, Matte About You.
Hey look! It’s Rita Remark! 🙂
Sally LaPointe’s take on a classic nude offered a metallic twist with Sand Tropez and Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low also crafted by Global Lead educator, Rita Remark.
Here’s the look that strutted down the runway of Essie’s Global Colour Designer, Rebecca Minkoff. You can view the full show at www.rebeccaminkoff.com. The look features Tart Deco, Marshmallow, Beach Bum Blu, Midnight Cami and Spaghetti Strap applied with a sponge technique to create a summery sunset ombré.
Which is your favourite nail design in this post? Have you been following New York Fashion Week? What are some Spring/Summer 2016 trends you’ve seen in this post that you dig?
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.
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!) 😀
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. 😉
