I thought it would be fun to celebrate the London Olympics with a few posts inspired by the colors of the medals handed out (gold, silver, and bronze). This post features five of my favorite gold-colored products!

Butter London Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection


Fall 2012 – Butter London Lacquers and Lipglosses

Sequins! Velvet! Satin! Tweed! This season, the catwalks were abundant with rich texture! We’ve translated this to nails through the infusion of glitter particles and metallic and holographic fnishes. The colour tones speak to “earthiness” but are not specifically earth tones – think rust, shimmering greens, and silver. This collection feels future-forward but not futuristic. This season is all about using texture to add interest and depth to your look.

Nail Lacquer ($14.00)

  • Lovely Jubbly Vibrant magenta flecked with red, blue, gold micro particles
  • Trustafarian Golden holographic finish gives this delightful sage green a surprising and sophisticated edge
  • Gobsmacked Heavily pigmented charcoal grey glitter with slightly textured finish
  • Shag High-shine metallic lacquer in a warm orange-burgundy hue
  • Dodgy Barnett Highly holographic shade that blurs the line between grey and silver

Lippy ($17.00)

  • Toff Darker, dustier, brownish variation on a rose pink
  • Come to Bed Red Sexiest red in history
  • Tea with the Queen On the pink side of tan, very neutral, but never boring
  • La Moss Vampy and full of red wine, just like its inspiration
  • Queen Vic Stunning, elegant, and classy; red wine meets cranberry

Availability: Now @ Nordstrom

Chanel Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Chanel Troublant Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss ($32.00 for 0.28 fl. oz.) is described as a “rose brown.” It’s medium-dark rose with a hint of brown and some mauve, along with multi-colored shimmer–I detected copper, gold, and flecks of teal. Bobbi Brown Naked Plum is pinker, plummier. NARS Oasis is darker, more plum. MAC Spice is like a browner, creamy, opaque variation. MAC Over Indulgence is less pink.
