Bordeaux nails via Red Door Spas backstage at Halston

Backstage at Halston, models were sporting a Essie’s deep red wine classic, “Bordeaux” by Essie.

Alisha Botero, National Training Director for Nails at Red Door Spas, told me a little about the color while diligently manicuring model Austria an hour before showtime

“Since the makeup is very light and fresh, the nails should be a bit dramatic with something like this wine-inspired red.” Botero says she predicts darker reds to be especially rampant this Fall and into the winter, but with a color like this, I think any occasion is the “right” occasion — rain or shine. A classic dark red was totally appropriate for Halston’s straightforward and clean-cut styles that I saw later at the presentation (more on this to come!).
