Coachella-Inspired Manicures from butter LONDON

Nail Look: butter LONDON Nail Lacquers in Sunbaker, Fiver and Poole

Katie’s How-To: “Rather than tossing old make-up brushes, I always suggest reusing them as tools for nail art. The tiny tips of eyeshadow brushes will make smooth lines and patterns easier to achieve. Begin with a layer of butter LONDON Nail Foundation followed by two coats of Nail Lacquer in Sun Baker. Take a pointed eye brush or bobby pin, dip it in butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Poole and dot away! For added dimension, layer smaller dots – using butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Fiver – on top of the existing dots to make the look pop. Finish off with butter LONDON’s P.D. Quick Top Coat.”

Nail Look: butter LONDON Nail Lacquers in Fruit Machine, Bobby Dazzler, Sunbaker, Poole and Slapper

Katie’s How-To: “Becoming your own artist is one of the best ways to create unique nail looks. Begin with a layer of Nail Foundation followed by Nail Lacquer in Sunbaker. Pour butter LONDON Nail Lacquers in Fruit Machine, Bobby Dazzler, Poole and Slapper onto a piece of paper, keeping each shade separate. Take a small piece of saran wrap and dip it into one of the spills. Place the saran wrap over the nail to create a textured, layered look. Continue using saran wrap to layer the various shades of lacquer in different directions across the nail. This is really a look where no rules apply! Complete the look with butter LONDON’s P.D. Quick Top Coat which will protect the colours beneath it and give a super-shiny finish.”

Nail Look: butter LONDON Nail Lacquers in Bobby Dazzler and Poole

Katie’s How-To: “Begin with a base coat of Nail Foundation followed by two coats of Nail Lacquer in Bobby Dazzler. Using Nail Lacquer in Poole, place the polish brush down on the center of the nail where you want the highest point of your pyramid to be and drag down to the tip of the nail. Simply repeat the same movement on either side, creating shorter lines until you fill the nail and create the pyramid shape. The trick with this look is to not use too much polish and not to press so hard on the nail with the brush as you create the pyramid. Finish the look with P.D. Quick Top Coat.”
