Backstage at NYFW: Leather-Inspired Nails at Costello Tagliapietra
I caught up with Michelle Saunders, the lead manicurist for Essie, backstage at Costello Tagliapietra to discuss the amazing leather-inspired (yes, leather!) runway nails that perfectly matched the collection's shoes.
"The footwear is amazing, and they have some leather accents," explained Saunders. "We really wanted the nail to complement them."
Saunders started with the Essie shade Midnight Cami and added a coat of the sheer polish Mademoiselle over the base, along with a topcoat for a matte finish. "It softens the blue and highlights the heels."
Have you tried navy nails?
