"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."
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- To finish, top the look off with Essie’s platinum top coat for gel-like shine.
