At Marchesa Spring/Summer 2014, the look was all about a goth-inspired violet lip paired with naturally luminous skin, a subtle brown eye and lavender nails.

“Overall the inspiration is gothic romance. It adds toughness to the feminine and enchanting look of the dresses and it plays in well with the body art,” says Westman. “The clothes are so pretty and I wanted to do something to compliment the overall look, but still be unique and a little cheeky.” explained Revlon Global Artistic Director Gucci Westman.

“We went with a lavender shade because it’s a cute and feminine color that really matches with everything. It works beautifully with the colors that the collection is made up of,” says celebrity manicurist Jin Soon Choi. “To recreate the look, carefully apply two coats of the lavender polish (Revlon Nail Enamel in Darling) and then be sure to add a shiny top coat (Revlon Quick Dry Top Coat) to finish it off. When applying any pastel the most important thing is to take your time so that the color looks even and smooth throughout.”
