Butter London Sweetie Shop Collection for Spring 2013


Butter London Sweetie Shop Collection for Spring 2013

Straight from the catwalks, the inspiration for the Sping/Summer 2013 collection emerged from the charming colours and silhouettes of the 50’s-inspired femme fatale. Shades influenced by the soft pastels of cotton candy, milkshakes and macaroons enhance the playful feminine edge. A brilliant sherbet, luxe lemon and peppy violet are paired with an icy mint, rich candy pink and creamy khaki for a statement that’s sweet but chic. “Pops of pastels are iconic for spring and look like candy on the nails,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador for butter LONDON.

  1. China Glaze Cranberry Splash — brilliant bright red
  2. Illamasqua Swinger — antique gold
  3. Zoya Song — sparkling blue
  4. Butter London British Racing Green — deep, dark green
  5. Chanel Malice — deep, dark red

What’s your favorite polish for the holiday season?

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “highly holographic lacquer in a classic shade that blurs the line between grey and silver.” It looks like a soft, paled silver-gray shimmer suspended in a clear base, but it definitely has holographic shimmer as soon as the light catches it. The particles aren’t chunky or gritty, like glitter, but they’re a bit larger than shimmer. Milani HD is comparable–the particles are just larger and it has a more silver coloring.

Butter London Trustafarian Nail Lacquer

Butter London Trustafarian Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “delightful sage green [with] a golden holographic finish.” It’s a subtly warmed up light-medium green with yellow undertones and holographic glitter. It reminds me of meadow-y greens for some reason, though I’m sure that brings up a totally different color in your mind! It’s a soft, pale green. Softer than sage but similar in some of the muted qualities of the color. Milani Hi-Tech is the only holographic green polish I could think of, but it’s much darker and less yellow-toned. Do you have any dupe suggestions?
