Mod­els at the Reem Acra Spring 2019 show looked ethe­real in bold nail shades from the de­signer’s Essie Gel Cou­ture bridal col­lec­tion.

Reem Acra Is Known For Her Flair For The Dra­matic,

and her run­way show this sea­son took it OTT. Staged at the New York Pub­lic Li­brary, Acra pulled out all the stops for her lat­est iconic bridal col­lec­tion, a pa­rade of ball­go­wns and dra­matic full-skirted dresses in ex­quis­ite fab­rics like state­ment lace and flo­ral jacquard, trimmed with jewelled bows at the neck and waist­line—a Reem Acra sig­na­ture de­tail. Back­stage pre-show, Acra shared that the inspo for the dreamy col­lec­tion came from Kahlil Gi­bran’s The Prophet, a lyri­cal col­lec­tion of es­says ex­plor­ing the themes of loss, love, beauty and spir­i­tu­al­ity. She topped each look with or­nate flo­ral headpieces and put the fin­ish­ing touch on each model with a strong nail state­ment us­ing shades of Gel Cou­ture pol­ish from her bridal col­lab with Essie. Rita Re­mark, global lead ed­u­ca­tor and nail artist for Essie Canada, cre­ated the nail looks and shares that every model in the show wore one of the six of­fer­ings from Reem’s col­lec­tion. “I love the shades be­cause they stray from the tra­di­tional de­mure sheer nudes. From bold and softer pinks to robin’s egg blue and glit­ter­ing gold, there’s a shade for every bride that of­fers her the op­tion to ex­press her per­sonal style with her beauty look.”
