Spring 2013 Nail Looks by butter LONDON

Earlier this week I shared with you a feature on Color Inspiration, and showed you where to look for the next season's color trends.  Today I am happy to share with you the Spring 2013 nail looks, created by butter LONDON's Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Hughes, and how you can achieve these looks at home.

Overall Look: The designer's signature feminine style had a bit of an edge.  The collection consisted of flirty, feminine silhouettes with zippers, studs and texture.  

Nail Design: The models weren't wearing bracelets or rings because Erin wanted the nails to be the accessory for the hands.  Metallic nails mimicked the look of jewelry, lending itself to the ultimate eye-catching accessory. We used Lillibet's Jubilee, a silver metallic colour with a lilac finish that adds a feminine touch to the rock & roll vintage feel.
Details: The nails were naturally rounded for a feminine finish.

Overall Look: The collection by this cool NYC label featured leather textures, psychedelic prints and tie-dye hues

Nail Design: The nails were inspired by the tie-dye pieces of the collection, which we complemented with a bespoke Cosmic Nail, including a mix of mauve and olive with celestial effects.  

Details: Knackered was used as a top coat to give the nails a holographic effect. To add an edge to the look, a glossy black stripe was added for an unexpected geometric element.

Overall Look: Kaelen showed a powerful collection featuring designs with a modern 80's vibe.  Sharp lines with rock prints, lucite accents and pops of sunny neon yellow rounded out a mainly black palette.  

Nail Design: For nails, we went for a high contrast “Distressed Nail” using black as the base, a bespoke nude khaki was then layered in jagged strokes towards the bed. 

Details: For added dimension, we matted out only the black section, creating a dual-textured look full of disheveled luxury.
