If you've ever tuned into Queer Eye, chances are you've fallen madly in love with Jonathan Van Ness. He's the outspoken and hilarious grooming expert who is arguably the most energetic personality on the show. It's hard not be obsessed with the likes of JVN, and nail polish powerhouse Essie knows that just as well as we do. 

So when picking its newest ambassador right in time for Pride, it was only right that the brand selected the Queer Eye superstar. He's rocking the fiercest nail art ever in the newest campaign, and best of all, you can easily re-create it. 

Essie just made a big announcement. 

And Queer Eye favorite Jonathan Van Ness did, too. The hairstylist extraordinaire just became the first male ambassador for nail powerhouse Essie, and the partnership comes at the perfect time: Pride Month! 

"I’m so honored to announce I’ve teamed up with @essie as their first non-female ambassador in celebration of Pride! For me, polish has always been a form of self-expression. Right now that means this mosaic rainbow mani moment. Wearing it proud!" he announced on his Instagram page. 

But it's not just a nail polish color that he's created with Essie.

Instead, it's something much cooler. A manicure was inspired by the vibrant colors of Pride using seven of Essie's staple colors and were meshed together into a colorful mosaic made by Essie’s Global Lead Educator Rita Remark. 

"Some of my favorite nail designs happen when you mix two styles together. For example, this look features elements of an abstract painting and marble design," Remark said in a statement. "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. Bold nail designs like this are ideal when polishing just three or four nails. On all 10 nails it may seem overwhelming, but on just a few, it’s the perfect balance."

Ahead, check out some of the vibrant colors you, too, can purchase to re-create the look yourself.
