Fashion Week: Essie’s Flashback To The 70s


These dark colors really pop! For New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014, designer Veronica Beard introduced a line of retro designs inspired by David Bowie and the glam rock movement. The catwalk was filled with fab colored prints, pointed toes, fur, and thick gold jewelry – like the arm cuff below we are totally coveting.

The look required a nail that lived up to the fabric’s rich colors – and manicurist Julie Kandalec did not disappoint. After applying Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat to smooth out nails, the artist used a coat of Mink Muffs, followed by Meet Me At Sunset, letting each layer partially dry in between applications. She finished the manicure off with Good To Go Top Coat, and sent the models on their way! The result was a perfect burnt orange tip that complemented both the collection’s earth and jewel tones.
