Emmy Rossum Met Ball Manicure

Butter LONDON Nail Lacquer was a must-have accessory for Emmy Rossum as she hit the red carpet for the 2013 Costume Institute Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Katie Hughes, Butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador, created her nail look for the evening, each which played up the nights theme of “Punk: Chaos to Couture.”

Inspired by her soft, billowing Donna Karan dress, Hughes created elegant yet edgy nail art for Emmy using extra pieces of lace – the same fabric from which her dress was created – supplied by Donna Karan. The designer also supplied Emmy with individual crystals, also used on her dress, to help enhance her nail look, adding a bit of punk rocker edge.

“Emmy knew she really wanted to incorporate the fabric from the dress somehow, but with a twist that gave it an unexpected edge,” said Katie Hughes, Butter LONDON Global Colour Ambassador. “Together we decided to use both the fabric and the stones to create a nail that was both delicate and edgy. It looked awesome.”


• Emmy’s nails were painted with two coats of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Yummy Mummy followed by a layer of butter LONDON P.D. Quick Top Coat.

• Individual pieces of lace were cut to perfectly cover Emmy’s nails and placed them down on the wet nails, letting the lace dry on top of the nail.

• Once the nails were dry, glue was placed on random spots of the nail where the crystals would be adhered, and then placed each crystal onto the nail.
