Nicole Miller sent her spring/summer 2016 collection down the New York Fashion Week runway on September 11, 2015. The collection was playful, edgy, and street art inspired. Loved it!

To compliment Nicole Miller’s spring 2016 runway collection’s edgy vibe, butter LONDON’s lead manicurist, Katie Jane Hughes, created a cutting-edge nail art design which worked perfectly; both complimenting and completing the collection.  According to Katie Jane Hughes, “I created this bold nail look to play off of the street art inspired clothing in the collection. Black nails and edgy details are going to be a trend for spring. Spring beauty this season isn’t about playing by the rules.”

The result was amazing. The nails offered a graphic, splatter-effect with a pop of color which mimicked bold street art and graffiti found throughout Nicole Miller’s spring 2016 collection.

Since this nail look was so fabulous, Katie Jane Hughes and butter LONDON have shared with us the backstage secret to re-creating Nicole Miller’s spring 2016 runway nail look at home! Here are the amazing tips, using nail polish from butter LONDON:

Designer: Nicole Miller

Lead Manicurist: Katie Jane Hughes

The Scoop: The graphic, splatter-effect nail art featured a pop of color that mimics the bold street art and graffiti patterns found throughout the collection.

The Design – here’s how Katie created the look:

  1. Apply two coats Nail Lacquer in Cotton Buds.
  2. Dip a bobby pin into Nail Lacquer in Union Jack Black. Position the bobby pin over the nail and blow through the middle to create a splatter effect on each nail.
  3. With a new bobby pin, repeat the process with Nail Lacquer in Easy Peasy (NEW – launching in April ‘16) on various nails on both hands.
  4. Lastly, apply one coat of Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat to create a high-shine finish.
