Marc Jacobs’s Nail Art Ode to Louis Vuitton

After confirming his departure from Louis Vuitton to further his eponymous label, Marc Jacobs marked his final show with an ode to the City of Lights.

He customized a nail color from his beauty line, an inky indigo black called Midnight in Paris, to complement his monochromatic final bow at Louis Vuitton, a show that he dedicated to “the showgirl in all of us.” Manicurist Marian Newman touched up the models’ tips with the shade just before hitting the carpeted runway for a plasticized, wet-look finish that mimicked 30 coats of polish and sparkled against all of the beading incorporated into the glitzy collection.

And no, you won’t have to go to Paris to pick up the polish yourself, as it will be available for a limited time at Sephora stores, MarcJacobsBeauty.com, and select Marc Jacobs boutiques. This is one goodbye present we don’t want to miss!
