Swatches: essie Summer 2015 Nail Polish

So excited that essie’s Summer 2015 collection is not only available in regular nail lacquer, but is also coming out in the essie gel polish under the same names!  If you recall, the original 76 colors (1st and 2nd launch) had ‘as like’ names, since the gel was difficult to get an exact match on existing colors.  A pretty tough feat to match over 30 years of top sellers. Happily they have been able to move forward with same named sets, which  makes it easier when asking for our favorite colors.  For nail professionals, new gel polish/polish sets are available at Saloncentric for your discerning clients.

Academy Awards 2015: Dakota Johnson

Dakota Johnson by Mark Townsend – Get The Look

“Working with Dakota has been such an incredible and inspiring experience. For the 2015 Oscars I wanted her hair to reflect her personality and style, and the Saint Laurent gown she chose to wear was very vibrant. We decided her hair should be off the dress, but not necessarily up, so I went for a young, cool ponytail. She has the most amazing fringe so we kept them down with some face framing layers to keep the style modern and perfectly imperfect.
•To create the look, I started by adding a few drops of Dove Youthful Vitality Silk Crème to her damp hair and blow dried with a Mason Pearson brush.
•For texture and grip, I liberally sprayed Dove Refresh+Care Invigorating Dry Shampoo throughout her hair, then gathered it just above the occipital bone, securing with a tight elastic.
•The key to dressing up a ponytail is in the details, so I pulled a small amount of hair from the ponytail, wrapped it around the base to hide the elastic, and secured with bobby pins.
•To create additional texture I sprayed Sally Hershberger Glam Waves spray in my hands and raked it through the ponytail.
•I finished by spraying Dove Style+Care Extra Hold Hairspray to add shine and keep her hair in place all night.”
