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 Schwab, Temperley and Sibling.
Here’s how to get the look:
Michael van Der Ham
A look to reflect the multi-layered textures running throughout the collection.
KJH:“The free hand ombré nail mimics the handmade materials and applique within the collection.”
GTL: Apply two coats of butter LONDON Yummy Mummy to create an opaque base. Then create an ombré effect by applying butter LONDON Dubs to the nail tips and swiftly brushing down the nail using butter LONDON Ombré Brush.
Butter LONDON Yummy Mummy £12, Boots,
Butter LONDON Dubs (as part of the Brick Lane Collection) £35, Butter London
Butter LONDON Ombré Brush (as part of the Colour Hardwear Nail Art Tool Kit, £20
Butter LONDON Nail Nosh £15
Inspired by Tatty Devines tribal jewellery and the playground this was a look for the rebellious girl.
KjH: this is floaty nail art at it’s best
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
Butter LONDON Nail Foundation, £13 Boots
A sporty take on a classic nude
GTL: Apply one coat of butter LONDON Tea with the Queen Nail Lacquer, followed by a coat of butter LONDON Nail 999 Rescue Basecoat to create and opaque peach finish
