Emerson’s runway was filled with dark fabrics and slashed cut outs which were complimented with shades ‘licorice’ and ‘lilacism’. Using these shades, Essie created a nail design that was edgy and striking to the eye. To create this look, V-shaped pieces of painters tape were placed horizontally on the nail. A coat of lilacism was placed on the bottom half of the nail and a coat of liquorice on the top.
