At Creatures of the Wind we got the skinny from Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes, of butter LONDON.
The Scoop: The nail was inspired by the idea of a mirage. To avoid looking “costume-y,” a natural base was used. The final result was something somewhat unrecognizable, but with elements of the familiar.
The Nail Look: Here’s how Katie created the look.
1. Apply butter LONDON Nail 999 Rescue Basecoat to add shine to the nail.
2. Then apply the new butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Full Steam Ahead (available November 2014) to the tips of each nail.
3. Apply butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer with finger to create an ombre fade, which allows the darker shade to come through softly for added dimension and an ultra-modern effect.
4. Lastly, top the nail off with butter LONDON Nail 999 Topcoat
NARS created the makeup look for the runway show.
LOOK: “Skater boys were the inspiration for this look, it’s raw, a little undone and effortlessly cool. The models looked great when they showed up for the casting—great skin, lots of freckles and a left over summer-vacation look to them, so we groomed the brows and gave the cheeks a flushed, overheated look.” - James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry
