#Backstage at Wes Gordon, these hands were begging for attention. 

essie and lead manicurist Rita Remark created this edgy french manicure by using an interesting technique:

First a layer of essie’s metallic Penny Talk followed by a layer of dark Bordeaux (or this shade), topped with Matte About You and finished with a Wicked tip. 

The result - this opulent looking nail.
Or a vampy Valentines Day look?
