Nail the Look: Recreate Emmy Rossum's Evil Eye Manicure
We spy one chic manicure on Emmy Rossum! At the launch of the CHOO.08 line in Los Angeles, the star complemented her structured Kaufmanfranco number with evil eye-inspired nail art. In addition to its ability to keep bad luck at bay, we also love how it serves as a minimalist take on the intricate mani trend, so we got the step-by step instructions from Rossum's manicurist Katie Jane Hughes so you can nail the effect.
To start, Hughes applied a layer of Butter London's Nail Foundation ($17; butterlondon.com), and followed by painting a white half-moon along the star's cuticle using Butter London's Cotton Buds hue ($15; butterlondon.com). The rest of the nail was left nude to create the illusion of a floating effect.
Picking up the periwinkle lacquer in Sprog ($15; butterlondon.com), Hughes applied a blue dot in the center of each half-moon, then used the same method to apply a smaller black dot in the center with the Union Jack Black shade ($15; butterlondon.com). If you're trying out the effect at home, we recommend using either a dotting tool or a toothpick to place the dot. Once the pattern has completely dried, follow with a generous layer of your favorite top coat to keep the design in place.
