If I were to predict a beauty trend that’ll come out of the Spring/Summer 2013 New York Fashion Week shows today (which is a bit early), it would be out-of-this-world-looking nail art. Earlier this week Carrie posted about the “Galaxy Glam” manicure seen at the Nicole Miller show and today I’m here to rave about the “Bespoke Cosmic Nail” seen at Veda. Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador of Butter London, created this graphic, holographic manicure to complement the tie-dye pieces in the collection. Here’s how to copy it:
Step 1: Apply a base coat and two coats of olive nail polish on all but one of your fingernails. Try Butter London 3-Free Lacquer in Sloane Ranger, $14.
Step 2: Paint your remaining nail (the accent nail) with two coats of mauve nail polish. Try Butter London 3-Free Lacquer in Toff, $14.
Step 4: Top all of your nails with a glittery top coat that has very fine flecks of glitter. Try Butter London 3-Free Lacquer in Knackered, $14.
Step 5: Using black nail polish, paint a stripe down the middle of your nail starting a quarter of the way up your nail. Let your polish dry for a few minutes and finish with a top coat.
What do think? Will you try it?
