NYFW F/W 2017: Essie For Monse


At Monse, the pieces were carefully constructed to create the idea of “falling,” pairing well with bold, graphic prints. For the nails, Essie’s global lead educator Rita Remark took the brand’s collection as inspiration.

For the nail look, models’ nails were simple with a half-striped nail on the ring finger to go with the vibrant colors in the collection without adding too much. The finishing touch was the pinky nail, coated in chrome to leave a “lasting impression,” according to Remark in a press release.
