A-List manicurist, Tom Bachik, created a ‘strong, sexy chic’ look for Marion Cotillard. He posted a snap of the nails, painted with Chanel’s Clair De Lune, with the comment: “We loved the idea of a shimmery bronze metallic to play off her black Chanel jumpsuit to give us a deep mixed-metals metallic for a bit of an edge.”
Bachik also glammed the nails of actress, Michelle Williams, who wore a Chanel’s Ballerina shade with silvery micro French tip.
