“The collection this season is about transcendence- moving from the earthly realm into the light. We wanted the makeup to reflect a sense of purity and illumination, so we focused on gleaming, luminous skin and a metallic blue liner on the inside of the eye to light the eyes from within,” says James Boehmer, NARS Director of Global Artistry.

Lead manicurist and butter LONDON Global Color Ambassador, Katie Jane Hughes, drew inspiration from the space-like/psychedelic vibe of the fabrics and patterns within the collection to create the nail look.

She used a technique called water marbling to create the nail design, with the agate stones that inspired the A/W ’14 collection as her guide. Each nail (675 in total) was made by hand last night by Katie and her team—with no two nails alike. To achieve the look, Katie poured drops of several Nail Lacquer shades (Yummy Mummy, Diamond Geezer, Posh Bird, Pearly Queen, Billy No Mates) one after another into a bowl of water, creating rings of color, much like agate. Once the color had been placed, Katie took an orange wood stick to swirl the colors 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 colors were used, Nail Lacquer in Trallop was used on half of the models nails and Nail Lacquer in Teddy Girl was used on the rest.
