Nails of the Day

Nails of the Day – Brave Edition and Giveaway!

We have some very special nails for you today! One of our fabulous contributors, Corrine Caputo, got her nails done with this beautiful Scottish Tartan nail art design inspired by and as seen in the movie Brave. The unique Tartan was designed by the artists who created Brave and is named for the royal DunBroch clan of the film. The wonderful people over at butter LONDON partnered with Disney Pixar to show you how to do the Scottish Tartan design for yourself!

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 color, 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!

 Now it’s YOUR turn to show us your best Brave inspired nails! You have a week to send in your Brave nail design to with BRAVE NAILS as the subject and be entered to win 1 of three prize packs featuring the DunBroch tartan scarf ($50 retail value) as well as the 5-disc Collector’s Edition of Brave ($49.99 retail value)!
