Going for a girly, yet feminine and strong look at Kaleen, celebrity nail artist Pattie Yankee mixed two custom Patricia Yankee Nail Lacquers, a taupe using ¾ of her Flesh shade and ¼ Cornerstone and a pink where she applied one coat of Love then a coat of Veil. Using her Inspire Nails in Clear Almond, she adhered to models’ nails and then filed into a rounded point
With the “lyrical abstraction” inspired collection, Pattie collaborated with the Delpozo design team to create a striking, yet simplistic nail. “We wanted the models to be able to see the gorgeous pieces they were wearing,” says Yankee, “with the mirrored nails, we were able to achieve that.” Yankee and her team applied glue tabs to the back of the press on nails and adhered them to the models. The nails were then filed down to a natural length with a rounded shape.
Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, applied butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in The Black Knight to the tips of the press on nails. She then applied butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer at the base of the nail to meet up with the black at the tips. Katie used Nail Lacquer in Stardust and the new Nail Lacquer in Anorak, a black, white and silver chunky glitter overcoat (available in March 2014) over the entire nail. While the nails were still wet, Katie completed the look by applying holographic, diamond-shaped glitter to the tip of the nails.
Katie applied butter LONDON Nail Foundation as a base followed by butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black. She then used a thin striping brush to create the tweed effect, layering various Nail Lacquer shades onto the nail – both vertically and horizontally. Katie finished the look with butter LONDON’s P.D. Quick Topcoat. Shades used: butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Billy No Mates, Stag Do, Blagger, British Racing Green and Pearly Queen.
Models at Joie FW14 wore “Coney Island Cotton Candy!
OPI manicurists buffed models’ nails to a high shine and added a black Swarovski® crystal at the center of the cuticle line. Thumbs were polished in black satin-finish lacquer “4 In The Morning.”
