Our February Cover: The nail scoop
Do you like our February cover? What can we say, we’re pretty much in love…especially with those metallic
nails. We caught up with Michelle Saunders, NYFW Essie Lead Artist & Celebrity Manicurist, who created the look for our cover star Kate Mara.
"After working closely with our stylist and offering several nail colour choices on a colour wheel, we decided that an icy metallic would be the best choice for Kate. The colour I used is called ‘Good As Gold’ and it’s in the ‘Mirrored Metallics’ collection from Essie. Sometimes a dense metallic acts as an elegant neutral against textured garments. I always start with First Base base coat and finish with Good to Go top coat by Essie.” Would you wear a gold manicure like Kate? Read more:
