NYFW Spring 2012: Butter London Nails Down Erin Fetherston, Veda and Kaelen!!

New York Fashion Week is more than about clothing or accessories. The looks for beauty are important– if not crucial– to the entire presentation. Since nails have gained greater impact and import, now you have brands competing for space on the nails of the models. Here’s three lines that used Butter London for their models on the runway.

Overall Look:
The designer’s signature feminine style had a bit of an edge. The collection consisted of flirty, feminine silhouettes with zippers, studs and texture.

Nail Design:

The models didn’t wear bracelets or rings because Erin wanted the nails to be the accessory for the hands.
Metallic nails mimicked the look of jewelry– lending itself to the ultimate eye-catching accessory. The colors used were Lillibet’s Jubilee, a silver metallic colour with a lilac finish that adds a feminine touch to the rock & roll vintage feel as well as The Full Monty, a vintagey gold!

Details: The nails were naturally rounded for a feminine finish.

Overall Look:
The collection by this cool NYC label featured leather

textures, psychedelic prints and tie-dye hues.

Nail Design:

The nails were inspired by the tie-dye pieces of the collection, which we complemented with a bespoke Cosmic Nail, including a mix of mauve and olive with celestial effects. (In other words, custom blend and good luck finding it. However that’s not to say by Spring 2013, that it can’t be on store shelves!)

Knackered was used as a top coat to give the nails a holographic effect.
To add an edge to the look, a glossy black stripe was added for an unexpected geometric element.

Overall Look:
Kaelen showed a powerful collection featuring designs with a modern 80’s vibe. Sharp lines with rock prints, lucite accents and pops of sunny neon yellow rounded out a mainly black palette.

Nail Design:
For nails, they featured a high contrast “Distressed Nail” using black as the base, a bespoke nude khaki was then layered in jagged strokes towards the bed.

For added dimension, only the black section was matted out, creating a dual-textured look full of disheveled luxury.
