The Scoop: Fabrics and patterns within the collection had a space-like/psychedelic feel, which was presented down the runway as an evolution of colours – from dark to light.

The Look: Katie used a technique called water marbling to create the nail design, with the agate stones that inspired the A/W ’14 collection as her guide. Each nail (675 in total) was made by hand last night by Katie and her team—with no two nails alike. To achieve the look, Katie poured drops of several Nail Lacquer shades one after another into a bowl of water, creating rings of colour, much like agate.

Once the colour had been placed, Katie took an orange wood stick to swirl the colours together, creating a range of patterns. She then dipped the press on nail into the water, letting it sit under the water’s edge just below the pattern she wanted to lift onto the nail. Once removed, the pattern below the surface was transferred to the nail.

To add playful variation to the nail look, two different base colours were used: butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Trallop was used on half of the models nails and Nail Lacquer in Teddy Girl was used on the rest.
