NYFW Costello Tagliapietra FW 2014

Friday, February 7, 2014

THE MATTE NAIL IS BACK! There is something about a matte manicure that instantly transforms any ordinary color to extraordinary. The cool effect that always reads chic made it debut back stage at Costello Tagliapietr’s Fall/Winter 2014 show.

New York Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2014
Designer: Costello Tagliapietra
Manicurist: Julie Kandalec
Brand: Essie

Inspired by their favorite fantasy& Sci-Fi heroines, the dynamic duo behind Costello created a modern collection detailing the story of power and strength. Using gorgeous metallic fabrics (swoon!) in unexpected shades made the collection pop on the runway. To compliment this futuristic collection, lead manicurist, Julie Kandalec opted for a deep berry-colored Essie shade with a matte finish.

Here’s how you can get the killer manicure yourself:

Prep – As always, make sure clean and filed nails are properly primed for color. Julie opted for Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat.

Color – Once fully dried, Julie applied two coats of Essie Berry Naughty, a rich berry shade that is just perfect for the season.

Finish – To get that gorgeous matte finish, Julie coated nails with a final coat on Essie Matte About You
