The Scoop: The collection was inspired by ‘Off-Road Lifestyle’: the need for escapism and seeking solitude in the peace and tranquility of the English countryside. Combining classic hounds tooth with deep muddy tire tracks created a unique jacquard print that ran throughout the collection and onto the nails.

The Look: Katie applied butter LONDON Nail Foundation to the nails. She then used butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Cotton Buds to draw squares down the center and right side of the nails using a short pointed detailer brush. Using the same brush, she drew short diagonal lines from the top right hand corner and bottom left corner to achieve a chic hounds tooth finish.
