Here's a cute polish-layering idea from the Costello Tagliapietra Spring 2015 show at New York Fashion Week. 

Since the focal colour of the designer's collection was blue—inspired by the cinematic photography of the 1980s—nail artist Julie Kandalec created a custom "whitened blue" shade for the nail look.

Get the Look

1. Apply Essie Ridge Filling Base Coat to clean, filed nails.

2. Once the base coat dries, apply two coats of Essie Nail Polish in Bikini So Teeny.

3. Next, apply one heavy coat of Essie Nail Polish in Limo-Scene.

4. Follow with Essie Good To Go Top Coat.

Pro tip: Applying a single, heavier coat of polish will help eliminate streaking.
