Try This Nail Look

By Melissa Meisel | March 14, 2014

Essie debuted a new trend at Opening Ceremony’s F/W 2014 show.

Opening Ceremony’s Fall/Winter ’14 collection was filled with asymmetrical styles in rich green, blue and gray tones. Naomi Yasuda for Essie created three “negative space” diagonal nail designs to complement the styles on the runway.
 
She used:

  • First Base basecoat
  • Aruba Blue
  • Go Overboard
  • Master Plan
  • Good to Go topcoat
 
Here’s how to get the look:
1. Apply first base base coat to clean, filed nails
2. Once dry, apply one coat of aruba blue, go overboard or master plan (depending on color preference) to the pinky on left hand and ring finger on right hand
3. Next, apply preferred polish shade at an angle across each additional nail and fill in the space to make a diagonal design (each nail from the thumb to ring finger should have a different ratio of color to natural nail)
4. Finish with good to go top coat
 
In other news, the brand recently rolled out a set of cool pastels and more for Spring 2014.
