Julie Kandalec envisioned a matte gold nugget-looking nail for Delpozo. The subtle glitter stripe stood out on the runway against the matte background. To get the look, start with clean, filed nails, then apply one coat of Essie Matte About You. Next, dip a striping brush in Good as Gold and draw a straight line down the center of the nail. Using Rock at the Top, dot specs of glitter over Good as Gold. Finish by dotting Second Shine Around over the gold line only to make the metallic pop.
Models at Nanette Lepore were also golden girls, thanks to Essie polish. Michelle Saunders created a customized Rock at the Top nail look by layering the glitter shade in between For the Twill of It and Shifting Power.
