The Cut Plays Nail Artist for the Day Backstage at the Libertine Show

Last season the Cut sent beauty editor Christina Han backstage to a few shows to see what it’s like to wield a powder puff, a hair brush, and a nail file like the pros. This season, she’s at it again, starting as a nail artist for Butter London at the Libertine show. Teaming up with the company’s global color ambassador, Katie Hughes, she learned how to embellish gold nails with crystals and beads pulled directly from the clothes in the collection.

Still to come this week: Christina tries her hand as a hair stylist at Thakoon and a makeup artist at Theyskens’ Theory.
