Runway Nail Report: Essie for Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2020 Collection

Essie brought out a bit of colorful pop art for the Jeremy Scott Spring/Summer 2020 Collection. The colorful mani perfectly complimented the 80's rocker-chic collection.

Manicurist Miss Pop was inspired by the "geometric shapes, metallic western boots, animal prints, and saturated colors" found in Jeremy Scott's spring/summer 2020 show. Here's how to achieve this runway nail look for yourself:

step 1: apply here to stay base coat for a smooth polish application
step 2: dab “random splotches” of mod square (electric pink), in the cab-ana (vibrant aqua), butler please (bright blue), and hay there (buttery yellow) across 80% of the nail
step 3: use a detail brush dipped in licorice or no place like chrome to carve out confetti-like shapes
step 4: for the “squiggle” design, apply two coats of licorice across the entire nail
step 5: use a detail brush dipped in no place like chrome to create the shapes
step 6: layer over the shapes with a detail brush dipped in mod square, hay there, butler please, or in the cab-ana
step 7: once dry, set with speed.setter top coat
step 8: finish by moisturizing cuticles with apricot cuticle oil

Runway Nail Report: Essie for Christian Siriano Spring/Summer 2020 Collection

Essie nail polish was the go-to nail polish brand for several Spring/Summer 2020 NYFW shows this season. One of which was Christian Siriano's stunningly vibrant and colorful show.

Manicurist Julie Kandalec drew inspiration for this "painterly" French tip mani from Christian Siriano's spring/summer 2020 collection. To recreate this mani at home, follow these steps:

step 1: prep nails with one coat of here to stay base coat
step 2: use a detail brush to apply turquoise & caicos along the tip of the nail from side to side, cleaning up the shape with an angled eyeliner brush dipped in acetone
step 3: apply set in stones, stopping just before the French tip so that the silver glitter is flush against the seafoam polish
step 4: add another coat of turquoise & caicos over the tip to intensify the color
step 5: sweep a second layer of set in stones over the top and dab the brush to build the glitter
step 6: once dry, set with a layer of speedsetter top coat
step 7: finish by moisturizing the skin around nails with apricot cuticle oil
