NYFW S/S 2018: Essie for Rachel Zoe

byMolly Curtis | September 6, 2017

This week, Rachel Zoe debuted her Fall 2017 Bridal Collection as well as her Spring 2018 collection. Essie's Michelle Saunders created soft nude looks to complement the ethereal colors and textures of the collection, with a tiny touch of sparkle for added interest.

To get the look, Saunders used a coat of Essie First Base Base Coat, then one coat of Imported Bubbly to get a golden beige base. Then, she added a coat of Allure to create a sheer white layer of color. Finally, she finished off with the Good to Go Top Coat, and then used a dotting tool to add a single piece of glitter to the nail using the Set In Stones glitter polish. The pro-tip from Essie? Add the glitter after topcoat to ensure that it doesn't lose any shine!
