Step 1

Begin with Cuccio Nail Solutions Base Coat.

Elaine Watson, vice president of marketing and sales and global education director for Cuccio International, accompanied actress Minnie Driver to the set of a commercial she was preparing to film and provided her with a chicly detailed manicure to match her style.


"Wardrobe stylist Alexandra Mandelkorn and I collaborated to make sure the casual theme of the clothing matched the nails," Watson says. "We kept the colors in the cool family and Alexandra chose jeans, a grey blouse and this amazing grey hat. I happened to have these two great tones of grey — Oh my Prague and Soaked in Seattle — and decided to halo the cuticle with the darker shade and come in over 90 percent of the nail with the lighter grey. The end result was a perfectly styled look for Minnie literally from head, to finger tips."
