Rebecca Minkoff picks a polish to set off the accessories you’ll want to wear this spring
“I used to be the person who only ever had one shade that I would always go to,” says Rebecca Minkoff, the New-York-based fashion designer who recently took on the role of Essie’s global colour designer. “Now it’s like, you know what? I’m getting a new manicure next week!” And though she’s personally gravitating toward shades of pink for spring and summer, when it comes to choosing colours for the rest of us, she’s throwing caution out the window. “I think you should explore,” says Minkoff. “We’re seeing so many novelty accessories, and I think it’s about having your nails be a really great anchor. It’s just that hint that you know what’s up.” To help you put together a complete look with perfect details, we challenged Minkoff to pair up the hottest spring accessories with the standout nail shades of the season, so your mani matches your clutch and your toes set off your slides.
