  • At Rebecca Minkoff, manicurist Michelle Saunders for Essie created a Day of the Dead nail art look inspired by Frida Kahlo. To get the look at home, use Tart Deco as a base color and on one of your accent nails, use Blanc to paint the shape of a lightbulb. Then take a dotting tool and paint the skull's face with Butler Please, finishing by surrounding the entire nail with dots. Simple, right?

  • At Emerson, manicurist Miss Pop for Ciate created three nail designs for the show, our favorite of which being this "Stripes and Safety Pins" look. Use two coats of Snow Virgin polish, then with a striper brush, paint three jagged, vertical stirpes with Unrestricted Glam. Finish the look with a matte top coat.
