Essie kicked off NYFW SS20 by creating three nail looks for the Kith show on September 5. The first look (above) was inspired by Mad Max and the Sahara desert. Betina Goldstein used a sand-colored polish and made a dune-shaped design.

How to:

1. Apply Here to Stay base coat.

2. Outline the moon and sides of the nail with a detail brush dipped in Cliff Hanger.

3. Use the polish brush to fill in the nail from the moon down with Cliff Hanger.

4. Set Cliff Hanger with Matte About You top coat, leaving the moon glossy.

5. Apply cuticle oil.
