Michael Costello fall 2017 NYFW runway and nails

Michael Costello showed his fall/winter 2017/2018 collection at New York Fashion Week on February 9, 2017 at The Skylight Clarkson in New York. It was all about the “Enviable Vixon” who is basically “the coolest chick on the planet!”

The Michael Costello girl loves rock and roll, she takes center stage, is extravagant and has a magnetic charisma. When she walks into a room she commands everyone’s attention; and all eyes are on her. Costello’s fall 2017 collection is about this fabulous “Enviable Vixon” telling her love story which is sure to attract the attention of all her admirers.

The runway show was amazing! There was a 1970’s vibe to collection. I can picture the “Eviable Vixon” walking into Studio 54 and attracting the envy of every woman in the room; while every man wants her.

In order to compliment Michael Costello’s theme, and help make his collection shine, Essie created fabulous nails for the runway which are sure to be a hit this fall 2017 season. Below you will find tips and tricks for re-creating these fabulous nails at home.

Essie No More Film nail polish review

essie no more film nail polish review

nail polish c/o Essie No More Film (bottle from the holiday mini gift set, regular size bottle is part of the regular collection and linked to in this post)

One of the four colors from Essie’s holiday gift set was “No More Film.” This beautiful, dark purple hue also happens to be part of Essie’s regular nail polish collection. I am so thrilled to have a bottle of it; this color is divine!

While No More Film by Essie was a fabulous holiday hue, it really is perfect for winter, and the upcoming spring season. This spring, nail polish hues will range from feminine pinks to vampy charcoals and purples. Essie No More Film nail polish is perfect to wear now, in the winter season, and also as a transition nail polish into spring. Love!

I tested out Essie No More Film nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. The polish lasted eight days before my nail growth was too much to handle. This polish did not chip! Nail polish that does not chip, when in a dark color, is a life saver. Nothing irks me more than dark nail polish which is chipped. Essie No More Film will be my go-to dark polish for the rest of winter, and in early spring. I am in love!

When my little mini bottle runs out, I plan to pick up a full size bottle. No More Film by Essie is a beautiful purple hue. Obsessed!

You can find Essie No More Film nail polish, in a regular size bottle, online here.


Essie Oh Behave! nail polish review

nail polish c/o Essie Oh Behave! nail polish review

It is no secret that nudes, pink, and white hues are hotter then hot for the upcoming spring season. So when Essie released Oh Behave! as part of their winter 2017 nail polish collection, it was perfection in a bottle,

Essie Oh Behave! nail polish is the perfect pink for transitioning from winter into spring. The medium pink color has golden undertones, which adds sparkle and warmth to this edgy yet sweet hue. Love that!

The month of January is all about staying warm, and freshening up our wardrobes as we watch the spring collections roll into stores. While a beautiful sundress for spring looks inviting in a store window, it cannot actually be worn in the cold month of January, or in February; and you would be hard-pressed to wear it in March unless you have a spring break vacation planned. The only real way to enjoy spring during the cold winter months is wear it in our makeup!

Oh Behave! by Essie is perfect for spicing up a cold, grey winter day. It has just the right amount of sparkle, and the pink is perfectly on trend for now, and into the spring season. This is a great transition nail polish! Love!

I tested out Essie Oh Behave! nail polish with one base coat, and two coats of color. I cleaned my house without gloves, worked out at the gym quite a few times, and rearranged some things in the garage; and guess what, no chips for one week! It is like Teflon on my nails. Love!

Essie Oh Behave! nail polish will be my go-to nail polish as we transition from winter into spring. It is the perfect color to wear now; and it fits right into the upcoming spring trends.

You can find Essie Oh Behave! nail polish from the winter collection in stock online here.
