Manicures with Essie!

We teamed up with Essie Canada to check out what they were doing backstage during Toronto Fashion Week... we were totally blown away! The nails were all inspired by runway looks (our fav!) We have an obsession with nail art and are always on the lookout for the coolest nails around! So when Essie asked us if they could give us manicure's backstage all during the week, how could we say no? We love Rita Remark who is Essie's lead nail artist. She is so much fun! We met her on our way to New York Fashion Week (waiting for the airplane) because she was heading down to do all the model's nails for top runway shows in NY! We totally hit it off and here are the gorgeous manicures we got!

Manicure one is blue tie dye smudge for (Laura Siegel's runway show) Essie Polish used: Midnight Cami, Lapiz of Luxury, Blanc, Top Coat (No chips ahead)

okay love love the nails, but your dungarees are spectacular too, specially because of the belt! anyway, i suck at painting my nails because i absolutely non existing skills, i am super clumsy! my favorites are the pastel ones because of the non glossy effect
