“Maria’s white Johanna Johnson gown was elegant and understated so she wanted her accessories to be bold and make a statement. Nails are a really important accessory when it comes to the red carpet so we decided to play them up with a chic chevron.” – Katie Jane Hughes

Nail How To:

–           Katie began by using butter LONDON‘s Patent Gel Tops & Tails Basecoat

–           She created a custom blend for the base shade using butter LONDON Nail Lacquers in Union Jack Black and Pearly Queen

–           She then used butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black to create the outline of the chevrons on the tip of each nail, using a thin striping brush to achieve the thin line of lacquer

–           The interior of the chevron was filled with butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Gobsmacked which created a contrast between the base shade and the chevron
