For the nails butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes, did this very cool marble nail effect. Going for a more futuristic space look, she applied a water marbling technique, which guarantees no two nails are the same giving some imperfection to perfection. And considering the nails were made in advance (675 in total!) Kate and her team had their work cut out for them.

To achieve the look, Katie poured drops of several Nail Lacquer shades one after another into a bowl of water, creating rings of colour, much like agate. Once the colour had been placed, Katie took an orange wood stick to swirl the colours together, creating a range of patterns. She then dipped the press on nail into the water, letting it sit under the water’s edge just below the pattern she wanted to lift onto the nail. Once removed, the pattern below the surface was transferred to the nail. To add playful variation to the nail look, two different base colours were used: butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Trallop was used on half of the models nails and Nail Lacquer in Teddy Girl was used on the rest.
