Rebecca Minkoff’s Spring 2014 collection was all about bold florals, rich textures and bursts of color. With the ever-popular Tart Deco as the base, celebrity manicurist Michelle Saunders of Essie created nails that were equally vibrant and runway-worthy. You may have to wait a bit for the ready-to-wear and accessories, but you can get the nail look now, thanks to Michelle’s step-by-step instructions below.
