Giuliana Rancic  gave a nod to the nights punk theme with a dark yet glam nail look to complement her Falguni Peacock dress.  Used on her nails:  butter LONDON Horse Power as abase coat, two coats of butter LONDON La Moss and dollop of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in The Black Knight at the cuticle of each nail and then slowly dragged the nail brush down the nail to create a cascading effect.  The mani was finished with a layer of butter LONDON P.D. Quick Top Coat and butter LONDON Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil around the nails to help them dry faster.

Emmy Rossum had a custom designed manicure to match her dress.  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.

Nail Look How To:

· Katie began by painting Emmy’s nails with two coats of butter LONDON Nail Lacquer in Yummy Mummy followed by a layer of butter LONDON P.D. Quick Top Coat.

· She then cut individual pieces of lace 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, Katie placed glue on random spots of the nail where the crystals would be adhered, and then placed each crystal onto the nail. 

“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.”
