At the 25th Annual Footwear News Achievement Awards in New York, Jessica Simpson rocked a one tone merlot ensemble from her heels to her nails! We loved how she matched her manicure to her dress, so we spoke to Essie manicurist Elle Gerstein, who gave us the details on how she blended the custom nail shade for expecting star. "We wanted to create a polished and sophisticated look to compliment Jessica's red dress, especially since she was wearing different variations of the color that night," Gerstein said. "I layered Essie's Carry On over Tomboy No More to create a new shade that dazzled the eye, and really tied the whole look together." Looking to create your own custom shade?
