You can never go wrong with a classic red nail look. Just ask Emmy Rossum who donned just that at last night’s 2014 Costume Institute Gala. Katie Jane Hughes, butter LONDON Global Color Ambassador, worked with Emmy to create a bespoke red nail, perfectly suited for the Met Gala theme, “Charles James.”
The Scoop: By blending two butter LONDON nail lacquers, Ladybird and Pillar Box Red, Katie created a bold, red color for Emmy to wear. “We mixed together this amazing red color to complement a shade in Emmy’s Carolina Herrera dress,” said Hughes. “The blend had a hint of orange in it which looks gorgeous with Emmy’s skin tone.”
Nail Look How To:
· Katie began by using butter LONDON’s Patent Gel Tops & Tails Base Coat.
· She then applied one coat of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Ladybird followed by one coat of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Pillar Box Red.
· Katie completed the look with the butter LONDON Patent Gel Top & Tails Top Coat.
· To ensure Emmy’s hands looked smooth and moisturized throughout the night, Katie used butter LONDON’s Backstage Basics Signature Lotion.Formulated with Shea Butter and antioxidant Vitamins A, D and E, this lightweight lotion is the best pick-me-up for dull skin.
