NYFW: Nails by butter LONDON on the Lela Rose Runway
Designer Lela Rose ventured outside the fashion box while designing her spring 2014 collection. Inspired by the work of 20th century Danish architect, Arne Jacobson, Rose brought his love for strong curves, clean lines and flowing textures into her collection. Jacobson is most famous for his Egg and Swan chairs, giving way to Rose’s experimentation with curved lines on cropped blazers and pencil-skirted dresses. She was able to stay true to her soft, feminine style by using a slightly muted palette of icy blues, lilacs and chartreuse greens, coated in heavy black lace and sheer tweed.

Katie Jane Hughes, lead manicurist at butter LONDON, had the perfect polishes to complement the line. She chose to go with two looks. To create the first (above), Hughes applied two coats of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Lady Muck and finished with a coat of butter LONDON Matte Finish Shine Free Topcoat. For the second look, she decided to go for a design inspired by the curves of the lines in Rose's apparel. Hughes first applied butter LONDON Nail Foundation to create a clean, nude base. She then created a half moon effect using butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Lady Muck.
