One of the coolest manicures I saw this fashion week had to be Rebecca Minkoff's "night sky" nails created by essie. While I wasn't able to cover the looks myself backstage, the essie team shared these step by step photos with me that reveal how the unique nail art look was achieved. Rebecca's Fall 2013 collection was inspired by the night sky and every woman's inner rocker girl, so for the nails, manicurists dropped 5 different nail polish shades ranging from deep blue to gold onto the nails, then swirled the polish with a small paintbrush. The result looks like something from Van Gogh's "Starry Night" - and I'm in love!
Keep reading for the tutorial. Would you wear this look?
Shop the look:
Colors used (from left): Aruba Blue, Go Overboard, Blue Rhapsody, Penny Talk and As Gold As It Gets
Apply each shade in small dots starting with the darkest shade.
Finish the look by swirling the colors together with a thin paintbrush and a layer of top coat.
