Inspired by the light and dark side of femininity, Rita Remark for Essie created this dualistic nail look. Remark chose the color based on fabric in Costello’s collection.

To get the look, prep nails with base coat. Next, apply one coat of Essie Good as Gold to the nail. Blend Essie Good as Gold and Sole Mate horizontally with a makeup wedge. Work quickly to then blot the wedge onto the nail for a subtle ombre design. Repeat on all nails and finish with top coat. Clean up any excess polish on fingers with acetone.
