Top manicurists for essie headed backstage at several Paris Fashion Week shows - including Lanvin, Vanessa Seward, and Alexis Mabille - to add the finishing touches to the models with chic, sophisticated nail looks. At each show, the overall tone of the collection was used as an influence when choosing the complementary essie polishes to best enhance both the look and feel of the show.
At Lanvin, essie manicurists used ballet slippers to create a soft, blush-pink, neutral nail that added to the overall "cool-girl" vibe of the collection.
Manicurists used essie's bordeaux to create the rich, striking red nail seen at Vanessa Seward.
A graphic nail art look was created at Alexis Mabille. Manicurists for essie used limo-scene and licorice to create an almost-neutral nail with a simple, minimalist, black triangle on top for a chic design.
