Essie: Alice & Olivia Fall/Winter '14 Style

Today's look is all about dressing up the nails, and fortunately with sites like Pinterest we can learn how to create many of the styles without leaving the house.

There was a strong focus on the nails during New York Fashion Week, and I am happy to be able to share the many looks by essie.  

Stacey Bendet’s fairytale inspired Alice + Olivia collection was filled with textured metallic fabrics, exotic fur pieces and oversized knits. To complement the bohemian glamour vibe, Miss Pop Nails for essie created two dark, gold accented nail looks

essie nail products used:
first base base coat 
good as gold licorice 
good to go top coat

How to get the look:
  1. Apply first base base coat to clean, filed nails
  2. Next, apply two layers licorice
  3. To apply the gold dots, dip a nail dotting tool in good as gold and carefully apply a
    medium-sized dot at the center tip of the nail and two smaller dots on each side
  4. At the base of the nail, dip the dotting tool in good as gold and apply a medium-sized
    dot at the center edge of the nail and five smaller dots surrounding it
  5. Finish with good to go top coat
Tip: If you don’t have a nail dotting tool, use the end of a bobby pin!
