The annual Costume Institute Gala at New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art brought out some of the best (and worst) in beauty. Not sure what Miley Cyrus was thinking, but at least she stayed true to the punk theme. But, the deep burgundy lips, bold hair color streaks and nail looks were so worth copying.
Take Emmy Rossum’s lace nail art. So fun and actually easy to copy. Katie Hughes, Butter London Global Colour Ambassador, created the look using scraps of lace and crystals from the dress Donna Karan designed and Rossum wore. Here’s how to recreate it:
Step 1: Apply your favorite base coat.
Step 2: Swipe on two coats of Butter London Nail Lacquer in Yummy Mummy, $15.
Step 3: Apply one coat of a quick dry top coat like Butter London Hardwear P.D. Quick Top Coat, $19.
Step 4: Gently press small pieces of lace on top of your wet polish.
Step 5: Let your nails fully dry.
Step 6: Use nail glue to secure crystals in a random pattern on top of each nail to create a look that’s “both delicate and edgy,” says Hughes.
