The Great Camps of the Adirondack

On Monday, day 6 of NYFW, I got a last minute call in to work as a manicurist on set for the Veronica Beard label and Essie Nail Polish.

After my duties were complete backstage I viewed the collection of the sister-in-law duo, Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard, who presented their fall 2015 collection in a rustic ambiance at La Venue in Chelsea. Inspired by The Great Camps of the Adirondacks, the line went perfect with the out-doorsy theme of the venue which featured branches, mason jars and wooden planks as the foundation for models.
