After watching Michelle Saunders, Julie Kandalec and Rita Remark work their magic for essie backstage at New York Fashion Week, we learned an amazing new trick: layering. Instead of mixing or tracking down a new polish shade, these talented celebrity manicurists layer on different colors in order to create the perfect shade. And it’s super easy. Simply let each coat dry to the point where it’s still a bit tacky, and layer on the next color. The options are endless, and it’s an awesome way to warm up, lighten or darken any existing shade in your collection. And better yet, you won’t even need to purchase new shades for spring. Check out the slideshow to see some of the gorgeous layered colors they created for designers this season.
