NYFW Carolina Herrera FW 2015 - Nails

Tuesday, February 17, 2015

The ever-elegant collections of Carolina Herrera are ALWAYS a favorite of mine during NYFW.
Her feminine lines and dramatic silhouettes are the stuff of dreams and her FW 2015 collection was no exception. 

This collection makes you feel as if you stepped into a stormy watercolor painting -- soft yet powerful with just the right amount of cozy glamour. Exploring with the theme of water, the collection featured stunning takes on the element with opulent silks and jacquard. The collection also featured designs with rich cashmere and soft mohair fabrics.

The beauty look was one of my favorites this week. A modern look centered around a elegant berry lip and radiant skin. The look was topped off with a playful sparkled lash (how fun!).

For the nails, Michelle Saunders drew inspiration from the soft grey hues seen throughout the collection and the faint tones of red in the fabric. Her final look resulted in two nail looks that perfectly complemented the collection.


Here's how Saunders achieved this classic luxe look:
PREP: Always begin with clean, polish-free, neatly shaped nails. For a flawless, crease-less foundation, she coated the nails with a single coat of Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat.

COLOR: Once dried, she followed with two even coats of Essie Forever Yummy, a beautiful, richly pigmented red polish.

FINSH: For the final touch, Saunders coated the nails with Essie Good To Go Top Coat.

PREP: As noted above.

COLOR: Once the base coat is dried, Saunders followed with a single coat of Essie Imported Bubbly and layered a coat of Essie Allure atop that.

FINSH: Like the previous look, she topped the look with Essie Good To Go Top Coat for glossy finishing touch.
