Nude nails will always be in style. For Alexander Wang's first show since his New York Fashion Week departure, the Spring/Summer 2019 collection reflected on his experience as a Chinese American, according to sources at Essie who did the nail look at the event. Inspired by the fusion of larger-than-life Americana and nuanced, traditional Chinese influences, it still injected Wang’s signature NYC punk aesthetic.
Nail expert Rita Remark for Essie balanced out the playful clothing and chrome accents of Wang’s championship-inspired rings by creating a matte, clean beige nail with a touch of pink.
“For the final look, we decided to use Essie Topless & Barefoot,” said Remark. “It’s a classic all-American nude, and a subtle nod to the theme.”
To give a matte finish, Remark then used Matte About You topcoat with a speed setter.
