Essie is celebrating pride month in a big way.

The brand teamed up with Jonathan Van Ness of Netflix's Queer Eye to promote expression and inclusivity. Van Ness is Essie's first nonfemale partner. 

To celebrate the partnership, Rita Remark, Essie's global lead educator, created a mosaic nail art specifically for JVN. The colorful mani is designed to encourage people to be themselves and own their individuality. 

To create the look: 

Step 1: After manicuring, apply Smooth-e Base Coat to prime each nail.

Step 2: As per Jonathan’s signature manicure style, a few nails were polished with color as opposed to his whole hand. For this look, the shades 'Butler Please,' 'In the Cab-ana,' 'Come here!,' 'Chillato,' 'Play Date,' 'Geranium,' and 'Tart deco' were used to create abstract rainbow nail art.

Step 3: To recreate, apply each shade one at a time, using the polish brush to blend, creating a marble effect as if all the colors are melting into one another. Repeat on desired number of nails.

Step 4: Once the design is complete, top each nail with Gel.Setter Top Coat for a high-shine finish.
