NYFW Nails: How To DIY Ombre Metallic Nail Art

The New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015 Backstage Beauty Report: Ombre Metallic Nail Art

Designer: Creatures of the Wind

Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador

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.

How To DIY Ombre Metallic Nail Art:

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.
