essie How-To: Wes Gordon F/W ’16

Wes Gordon’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection is inspired by “downtown romantics and effortless elegance,” and is a celebration of the designer’s favorite things, pieces, techniques and ideas. To pair with the black, white and grey hues, Rita Remark for essie created a nail look that mimicked broken glass by layering set in stones over hors d’oeuvres.
