Backstage Interviews: #NYFW essie w/ Manicurist Michelle Saunders

The nail trend at Milly’s Fall/Winter ’14 collection was soft, elegant and relatable for every women.
Manicurist Michelle Saunders of essie created a soft pink nail look with a peach tint by layering cocktails + coconuts, mademoiselle and ridge filling base coat.  She gave me the beauty scoop on inspiration, the importance on using cuticle oil and peach being your go to shade for spring.

Runway inspiration: Milly’s Fall/Winter ’14 collection was inspired by the movement, discipline and beauty of ballet dancers.

Get the look:
 1. Apply first base base coat to clean, filed nails 
2. Once dry, apply one coat of cocktails & coconuts
3. Next, apply one coat of mademoiselle
4. Then, apply one coat of ridge filling base coat (this creates the peach tint) 
5. Follow with good to go top coat

I just recently started using cuticle oil on my nails and I see a big difference in my cuticles. I never used it before and didn't think anything of it. But you really should try it. I just realized I don't think I own any peach toned polish....gonna have to find me one.
