In a perfect pairing, Jonathan Van Ness, our favourite self-care advocate, has been named Essie’s first non-female ambassador.

Queer Eye fans everywhere have watched and admired Jonathan’s finesse, especially when it comes to personal grooming.  Having never shied away from a good polish, this makeover queen fronts Essie’s campaign with a rainbow mosaic mani.

The collection was first announced on Jonathan’s Instagram last week, aligning perfectly with the Pride Month celebrations. You’ll find seven different shades on offer, from royal blue – a hue dubbed ‘Butler’ – to ‘Tart Deco’ orange.  

Head here to ogle the colours, along with a how-to on recreating Jonathan’s colourful nail art.
