To embrace the in-crowd individuality of the after-party-inspired Alexander Wang Spring/Summer 2018 runway, Rita Remark for essie chose topless & barefoot, a “chameleon nude” she insists looks soft pink on some, ivory on others, and flattering on everyone. Using speed.setter top coat to achieve a high-shine finish, it’s the season’s perfect answer to going barely there in an eye-catching way.
Alexander Wang. Inspiration: ￼The Alexander Wang Fall/Winter 2017 collection pulled inspiration from a strong and rebellious individual, which echoed throughout his collection with industrial detailing and embellishments. Rita Remark for essie used this inspiration to create a “concrete” nail look, which Rita said symbolizes the “foundation that allows your individuality to shine.”
Inspired by a “vixen’s love story,” Michael Costello’s Fall/Winter 2017 collection starts off with a dainty feel in both colors and materials, and ends on a tougher note, and Rita Remark for essie wanted the nails to mirror that. She created a copper wire nail using penny talk as an accent color, choosing it specifically because it matches the hardware throughout the collection.

How To Get The Obmre Nail Look
When I’m trying to decide what makeup or beauty products to buy, one of the most important things I’m looking for is how long-wearing the product is. For many products, within seconds of application they rub off on my hands, clothes, and sometimes even on other people. I don’t like to look “washed-out,” so with some trial and error I work to find the perfect makeup for me!
Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup in 320 Warm Golden and Jane Iredale Glow Time Full Coverage Mineral BB Cream SPF 25 in BB7. I’ve tried many foundations, but these just stay put all day and both have a matte dry finish and non-greasy shiny finish. If you’re looking for a BB Cream don’t look anywhere else, this BB Cream by Jane Iredale is by far the best on the market. Most other BB Creams I’ve tried are too greasy and watery and they feel like a moisturizer as oppose to a foundation. The Jane Iredale one has the perfect balance of both.
Best Lipstick and Lipgloss
Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Light It Up (light coral shade) and Bare Minerals Marvelous Moxie Lip Gloss in Hot Shot (light bubble gum Pink shade). The lip-gloss by itself has great staying power, but when paired it with the lipstick – oh boy, you get nonstop color! These smells and feel cinnamon mint and very soothing. They are not greasy like so many lipsticks and lipgloss. These imo the best lipstick and lipgloss on the market today!
Best Eye Makeup
Bare Minerals Ready Eye Shadow in The Top Shelf (these are very clean eye shadows that have the perfect amount of shimmer without looking messy and glittery) and Anastasia Beverly Hills Covet Waterproof Eye Liner in Noir (black shade – this one just does not smudge for hours!).
Best Face Powder
Jane Iredale Pure Pressed Base Powder Foundation SPF 20 in Light Beige helps keep my foundation shine-free and in place all day.
Best Nail Polish
Essie First Base – a base coat that prolongs the staying power of any Essie nail polish – and then Essie Good To Go Top Coat, which provides a nice glossy finish to nail color, making it last longer.
Best Hair Shampoo and Conditioner
Pantene advanced keratin repair shampoo and Conditioner make my hair super smooth and frizz free that lasts for days. I also love Pantene Touchable Volume Hairspray that I spray after styling (please spray lightly and on ends), it smells amazing a keeps my hair style in place, it’s not sticky at all. And before I use a flat iron I spay Style Sexy Hair 450 Protect which smells so nice and protects my hair from heat while keeping my hair silky soft.
And of course, to remove all that great stuff without risking skin irritation, I use my old time favorites: Simple Skincare Cleansing Facial Wipes and Simple Make-Up Remover Pads.
