Shop all the Butter London nail lacquers here!
Another season of great fashion has ended so it's time to reflect on some gorgeous nail trends seen at New York Fashion Weeks Spring/Summer 2013 shows. Butter London is responsible for creating gorgeous bespoke shades for many of the hottest shows and this year was no exception. However, I did notice there seemed to be a love of natural manicured nails at many of the shows at you can see below.
Starting off my favorite of the bunch was from the VEDA show. The inspiration for this show was a 'Cosmic Nail' with a mix of mauve and olive with celestial effects. To add an edge to the look, a glossy black stripe was added for a geometric element. The nails were complimented by soft makeup and mohawks. Recreate the Veda look yourself with a mix of Sloane Ranger, Toff, Knackered and Gobsmacked.
It was all about rock and roll for the Kaleen show which translated to a grungy, distressed nail. Using black as the base a nude khaki was then layered in jagged strokes from the top of the nail bed upwards creating a backwards french manicure. For added dimension, matte out the only the black section, creating a dual textured look full of disheveled luxury. Get the look with Yummy Mummy and your favorite black lacquer!
Erin Featherston is known for her signature girly meets industrial edge and this season she complimented flirty, feminine silhouettes with a soft metallic nail. Metallic nails mimic the look of jewelry so the nails served as the eye catching bling in lavender and silver tones. Recreate this with Butter London's Dodgy Barnett and Shag.
Band of Outsiders and The Row were all about the naked, minimalist nail. Squeaky clean nails aren't as easy to do as you think. It's like being naked and having your flaws on full display so make sure your nails beds are buffed, filed and properly cleaned underneath. Start by applying a base coat of the the Horsepower Nail Fertilizer to strengthen and then Butter London's Nail Foundation to create an even perfect foundation. Finish off with the Hardwear P.D Quick Topcoat or Matte Finish to leave nails minimalistically gorgeous!
New York Fashion Week is almost over and then what? After 10 days of late nights, long lines, champagne overload and constant socializing we have to come down from that fashion high. Rachel Zoe's 'Zoe Beautiful' just addressed that very topic in their weekly e-newsletter and suggested a few beauty products to soothe and settle both mind and complexion. As soon as you have a weekend free, we suggest these products below to help you get a little r & r:
Before any facial product is put on, it's uber important to set the scene with something aromatic to help you relax. Antica Farmacista's Room Perfume with reed diffusers creates a comforting and fresh ambiance throughout the home to make any situation feel more luxurious.
Known by the Zoe team as the next best thing to booking a facial, Erno Laszlo's Anti Blemish Beta Purifying Mask detoxes and clarifies stubborn skin. Kaolin Clay and Willow Bark heal and prevent breakouts while Arnica tones and replenishes moisture.
