Gem Party Nails

Even though the idea of unique manicure colors, nail shapes, and DIY designs have been increasing in popularity over the past three years or so, there is always something more that can be done. I recently watched NYLON MagTV’s latest “Beauty Queen: DIY GEM PARTY NAILS WITH BUTTER LONDON”, Tutorial video by Katie Hughes really caught my eye.

In last year’s blockbuster movie The Hunger Games nail design lovers everywhere could not stop talking about Effie Trinket’s 3D embellishments on her nails. It is now evident that the industry has now been inspired to use textured embellishment looks on the runway. Katie Hughes, the Global Colour ambassador to UK nail lacquer brand Butter London, created a bespoke color and nail design for fashion label Libertine’s Fall/Winter 2013 Runway presentation. And now thanks to her DIY video you can be runway fabulous at home!
