SHOW: Michael Costello
LEAD ARTIST: Rita Remark for Essie
THE INSPIRATION: Drawing inspiration from Michael Costello’s Spring 2017 Runway collection, which was influenced by the relationship between the light and dark side of femininity, Rita Remark for Essie created a gorgeous design that drew on The hybrid of darkness and light. Taking a cue from the gold and açaí fabrics from the collection, Rita chose two colors, essie’s deep sole mate and metallic good as gold to luxuriously illustrate this contrast.
GET THE LOOK – NAILS
Step 1: Start by applying first base basecoat to the nails
Step 2: Next, apply one coat of good as gold
Step 3: Using a latex makeup wedge, apply both good as gold and sole mate horizontally on the wedge, and blend them together lightly
Step 4: Working quickly, tap the wedge into the nail and create a soft fade or Ombré design
Step 5: Repeat on all ten nails and finish with good to go top coat
essie pro tip: If any of the polish from the makeup wedge transfers to your cuticles, Rita suggests dipping a Q-tip in acetone for a quick clean up.
