Backstage at Nicole Miller’s Spring/Summer 2016 show, butter LONDON’s lead manicurist, Katie Jane Hughes, created a fashion-forward nail design that perfectly complemented the fun, edgy collection.
What Katie says: “I created this bold nail look to play off of the street art inspired clothing in the collection. Black nails and edgy details are going to be a trend for spring. Spring beauty this season isn’t about playing by the rules.”
Designer: Nicole Miller
Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes
The Scoop: The graphic, splatter-effect nail art featured a pop of color that mimics the bold street art and graffiti patterns found throughout the collection.
The Design - here’s how Katie created the look:
- Apply two coats Nail Lacquer in Cotton Buds.
- Dip a bobby pin into Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black. Position the bobby pin over the nail and blow through the middle to create a splatter effect on each nail.
- With a new bobby pin, repeat the process with Nail Lacquer in Easy Peasy (NEW – launching in April ‘16) on various nails on both hands.
- Lastly, apply one coat of Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat to create a high-shine finish.
