During Vogue’s Fashion Night out, I was invited by the fabulous team behind Essie to have an even more fabulous manicure inside a Mini Cooper. Yes. A mani in a mini.
For the day, I left with the gorgeous shade Dress to Kilt, from the Aw14 collection on my talons, but I also left with something quite special: the Vogue’s editor’s favourites VFNO special edition, with two shades: the super festive Set in Stones and my pick of the week, Power Clutch.
Power clutch is a weirdly wonderful creamy green grey – it is looks grey most of the time, but sometimes you really see a deep olive green, go figure.
Needless to say, essie polishes apply extremely well; well saturated in colour, with only two coats required, no staining, nice brush, quick drying, good durability (phew!)
To my Power Clutch base, I added spots with a dotting tool (and not creating perfect dots – just moving it a bit, to create irregular shapes) using L’Oréal Color Riche Black Swan and drew the lines around it with my new Sally Hansen nail art pen in silver (420) and voilá: one easy leopard print manicure.
