Get the look – Backstage at LFW with Butter London

London Fashion Week has finished, but thankfully we have until next summer to get to grips (and more importantly get saving) for the season ahead.

Blush went behind the scenes of LFW with butter London‘s Katie Jane Hughes and got an up close glimpse of her nail creations for the likes of Marios SchwabTemperley and Sibling.

Here’s how to get the look:

GTL: Start with a Basecoat to set the nails. Apply butter LONDON Union Jack Black to create freehand nail art using the lacquer brush and butter LONDON Colour Hardwear Nail
Kit Stripy Brush. Pick nails at random for a selection of Tatty Devine inspired symbols. Set the look with a layer of butter Topcoat for a glossy finish.

Minimalism meets texture

KJH Says: Understated with an edge. Try a darker shade for more intensity

GTL: Apply a thin coat of Basecoat to clean nails. Whilst still drying, apply a thin coat of butter LONDON Nail Foundation to add warmth to the nail. Layer the two shades to ensure nails looks fleshy rather thAn too white or too pink. Then to create texture, take a small piece of net material and apply softly to the wet nails and lift off slowly to transfer the pattern
