At Jenny Packham, Essie lead manicurist Rita Remark channels the fashion designer’s inspiration of musicians Nick Cave and PJ Harvey into simple, yet vivid cobalt tips. “[Their music] is very earthy and rooted,” Remark explains. “[Packham] wanted to have nails that, rather than classic or dreamlike, were playful and fun.” To get the look, Remark paints the nails with two coats of Essie Butler Please and seals the design with Essie Good To Go Top Coat. While the bright blue color is found in some sequins, it’s not a star color in the collection. “You won’t see it woven into a lot of the fabrics,” says Remark. “The idea [for the color] was to be lighthearted, and it’s a really great accompaniment rather than a match.” —Molly Church
