Nail the Look-AKA: butter LONDON New York Fashion Week Spring 2013

So maybe I can't fit into a sample size, and perhaps I don't quite have the budget for all the designer duds I would like, BUT I can mimic the exact trend displayed during New York Fashion Week-with my nail polish! And so can you! See how butter LONDON styled the nails of the models for Erin Fetherston, Veda, and Kaelen:



ERIN FETHERSTON





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.

VEDA









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.

KAELEN








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.
