"For Anna Kendrick’s Grammys look, we collaborated on a fun and whimsical manicure that mimicked the dainty feathers in her pink Ralph & Russo mini dress," says celebrity manicurist, Michelle Saunders. "The blue, pink and metallic accents made for a modern yet romantic nail art look."

  1. To start, apply two coats of Essie’s gel couture lace is more to each nail for a sheer, vanilla white base with a hint of shimmer.
  2. To recreate the feathered detail, begin by painting Essie’s gel couture first view on a small fan brush. Using the brush, start in one corner of the nail and create feather-like brush strokes towards the middle of the nail.
  3. Repeat the feathering technique with the remaining shades, pink diamond and no place like chrome, creating multiple brush strokes in different directions. Overlap the shades to create added depth!
  4. To finish, top the look off with Essie’s platinum top coat for gel-like shine.
