Precious pastels. 
You’ve earned these stripes. 
Here’s a secret, can you keep it? essie fall has the key to our hearts.
Think pink. Take your pick and find an essie gel salon near you.
Start your fall fashion inspiration from the nails up, with our favorite shades of the season.
Which essie fall shade are you falling for? <3 
Multi-dimensional. 
Count to 3 and ‘hide & go chic’. 
Color coordinate, on and off the runway with ‘go ginza’, an #essieNYFW trend. 
Layer on this chic runway trend with ‘limo-scene’ and ‘bikini so teeny’ from #essieNYFW.
Lovely duo. 
True or False: glitter makes everything better.

To get the look:
1. Apply one coat of blanc to make the polish shades appear 
brighter
2. Beginning at the nail bed, apply one coat of bikini so teeny
to half of the nail
3. Next, apply one coat of turquoise & caicos to the 
remaining half of the nail, slightly overlapping with bikini 
so teeny in the middle
4. Next, dip a striping brush in lollipop and create a thin 
horizontal fault line across each nail (do this step to one 
hand at a time, as the red polish needs to be wet in order 
to create the watercolor effect)
5. Directly after creating the fault line, apply a generous 
amount of good to go top coat over the entire nail; 
continue to blend towards the tip of the nail until the 
desired look is achieved
