On November 13th, 2012 to celebrate Disney • Pixar’s Blu-ray Combo Pack release of Brave, Disney • Pixar partnered with butter LONDON to create a custom nail bar with Scottish Tartan nail art designs inspired by and as seen in the movie, Brave. Katie Hughes, butter LONDON’s Global Colour Ambassador designed the custom tartan-inspired nail design.
Paint two coats of butter LONDON’s Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat for a beautiful, natural looking nail. Paint a brush-width strip of butter LONDON’s Queen Vic down the outside part of your nail. With a thin, long nail art brush, paint a thin line of butter LONDON’s Stag Do down each side of Queen Vic. With the same brush and colour, paint two small horizontal lines below the cuticle (try to keep the lines from going as low as the middle of the nail). Clean the brush in some acetone or nail lacquer remover and paint two horizontal lines of butter LONDON’s Sprog at the tip of the nail, as well as one vertical line down the right side of the nail. Apply butter LONDON’s Matte Finish Topcoat, and you’re good to go!
Brave has set off quite a fashion trend that is turning up in all sorts items including– elbow patches, a peplum, clutch, color block cardigan, watch band, iPhone case and more. Here are a few examples:
