“Laverne prefers wearing gel, since it dries instantly and is long-lasting,” says Elle. “I applied one coat of LeChat Perfect Match Beauty Bride To Be, followed by one coat of French Vanilla and finished with a top coat. I like to layer shades to create dimension and to custom match the shade [Cox] wears for her role in Jolt. The color combo complimented her skin tone, and LeChat carries an assortment of shades to provide color continuity for her current film schedule. Perfect Match doesn’t fade, and its durability allows for worry-free maintenance,” she says.
