How-To: Feminine, Soft Pink Manicure

Runway inspiration:

To accompany the bejeweled embellishments found throughout Altuzarra's Fall/Winter 2016 collection, Julie Kandalec for essie created a feminine, soft pink nail by layering sugar daddy over limo-scene. The sheer shades allow the natural nail to shine through with an elegant hint of pink.
