Tadashi Shoji’s Autumn/Winter 2015 Collection was influenced by the joy of flight. The collection includes ethereal silhouettes that evoke a feeling of weightlessness and aerodynamic seaming that inspirits movement. butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador Katie Jane Hughes created a dual-tone nail look that was whimsical and chic.

How To Re-Create the NAIL Look:

1. Start by applying butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Cotton Buds, an opaque pure white crème shade, with a sponge making sure the nail tip is covered, so the white color fades up diagonally like a cloud

2. Using butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Full Monty, a molten gold colour, use the opposite side of the sponge to soften any harsh lines and blend the white and gold nail lacquers slightly

3. Finish by using butter LONDON Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat to give the nails a brilliant shine in a hurry (P.D. Quick stands for “Pretty Darn” Quick!)

The collection was influenced by “definitive moments of American culture as viewed through a psychedelic lens,” as told by designers Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters. “The clothes take a nod to the 1920s art-deco period and the progressive 1970s.” To bring this vision to life, Hughes created an bold metallic nail devoid of shine with a matte finish.

How To Re-Create the NAIL Look:

1.  Apply butter LONDON Nail 999 Rescue Base Coat to clean, dry nails. Let dry completely

2.  Apply two coats of  butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Diamond Geezer, a shiny, platinum colour

3.  Finish by using butter LONDON Matte Finish Top Coat to mattify for an ethereal art-deco look
