Celebrity manicurist Gina Eppolito and the Cuccio Colour team gave the classic French mani a twist at Cute Circuits' Spring/Summer 2015 show. Featuring St. Bart's in a Bottle, Tahitian Vanilla and a custom blended orange, Eppolito designed approximately 200 individual almond shaped tips. 

She used Cuccio Colour's Cupid in Capri as the first coat then followed using Tahitian Villa for an iridescent pearl hue that was the center of the manicure. The half moon at the cuticle was over exaggerated using St Bart's in a Bottle and the free edge was finished off in a custom formulated orange that Cuccio Colour created especially for the Cute Circuit show.

The toes, visible in open toe flat sandals, were polished during backstage prep with one coat of Cupid in Capri and one coat of Tahitian Villa for a white iridescent finish. The High Gloss Top Coat and Quick Dry Drops, both from Cuccio Nail Solutions, were applied to complete the look.
