It's no secret that 'Queer Eye's' Jonathan Van Ness loves a good manicure, which is why it makes perfect sense that he would be Essie’s first male ambassador. As Van Ness wrote on his Instagram, nail polish has always been one of his favorite forms of self-expression and Pride is the perfect time to show that off.
Van Ness and Essie recently came together for a special Pride Month campaign. As the brand's first male ambassador, Van Ness worked with Essie to create a special manicure that includes all the colors of the rainbow. However, unlike the Pride flag, this new Essie manicure features more muted, pastel shades brought together by Essie’s Global Lead Educator Rita Remark to create a stunning mosaic pattern created. As Remark explains, "We wanted the colors of the rainbow, rather than be painted in a typical arc, to energetically splash across each nail for a playful, artistic result."
