Essie and Mercedes-Benz Team Up For a Unique Collaboration

Ever had someone look at a nail color on your fingers and say, “That looks like the color of a car I used to have.” Well, sometimes they might be right, as some polishes are inspired by automobiles and their beloved hues. Recently, legendary nail polish guru Essie Weingarten teamed up with Mercedes Benz to launch a chic color especially for Fashion Week. The new color, called Capri Blue, was a shimmering midnight blue in honor of the 2010 E-Class from the luxury car company.

Although the color was only available at the tents, if you’re dying to get your hands on it, Essie told us exclusively at an event at the swank backstage W Star Lounge that Midnight Cami in her fall collection is more than comparable.

You heard it here, people! Go get that polish and rock a little Fashion Week fabulousness of your own. Just be sure to move things out of your way when you’ve got a sudden urge to do a runway walk in random places. You could break a nail. 🙂
