TAYLOR SCHILLING,  Inspiration: “Essie’s bordeaux was the perfect polish to complete Taylor’s burgundy, monochromatic 90’s look. Two coats of this deep red wine shade paired with short nails kept her style cool, young and on-trend,” said Celebrity Manicurist, Christina Aviles.

SOPHIA BUSH, Inspiration: “Sophia and I chose Essie’s sugar daddy, a sweet, soft pink to create a natural nail. The polish coordinated beautifully against her dynamic, hot pink Marchesa dress,” said Celebrity Manicurist, Millie Machado.

EMILY BLUNT, Inspiration: “We started by shaping Emily’s nails into a clean, classic oval shape and followed with two coats of Essie’s mademoiselle for a soft wash of color. The sheer pink shade complemented Emily’s fair skin tone as well as her nude embellished Roberto Cavalli gown,” said Celebrity Manicurist, Carla Kay.

CHRISSY TEIGEN, Inspiration: “We decided on Essie’s mademoiselle to create sexy, sheer nails that played off of Chrissy’s plunging Dsquared² wrap dress and thigh-high slit,” said Celebrity Manicurist, Kimmie Kyees.
