Don’t shelve your vampy lacquers this spring. Featuring our winning dark polish from 2016 Best Beauty Buys (Essie in Wicked, $9; essie.com), this design subtly enhances the natural curves of your nail with just a few dashes of the bordeaux classic.

“It feels like a cool remix of the traditional French manicure style,” says N.Y.C. manicurist Ami Vega. Check out the step-by-step in this video. Happy #ManiMonday!
