New! butter LONDON Colour Clash Collection

butter LONDON- Fall 2013 Colour Clash

Launching today on butterLONDON.com, the Colour Clash Collection is a chic, surprising new collection of brights and whites that are perfectly on-trend to take your look from summer to fall. The collection includes vibrant bright nail lacquers in Wellies, Pimms, Cake Hole, Silly Billy and Giddy Kipper that can add a much-needed pop of colour to any look. Ready to rock out in white? Sport a trendy white-nail with Cotton Buds, which can also be used underneath nail art to punch up any colour.

“We have this gorgeous, opaque, full-cover white in the collection that I am obsessed with, not to mention that massive white nail trend we have been seeing in sport luxe editorials,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador. “A good white is essential as it will brighten any colour it’s placed under, but it’s also a great base colour for creating nail art as it punches up the colour. One of my favourite collections yet, Colour Clash is so fun and bold.”

Cake Hole – Opaque, nearly-neon pink cream
1960s Brit slang referring to one’s mouth…and the desire for it to remain closed.

Silly Billy – Opaque, fire orange crème
A clown popular at fairs in Britain, and a fab nickname for anyone named William.

Wellies – Opaque, grass green cream
A very popular rain boot, seen often in Britain.

Cotton Buds – Opaque, pure white cream
A wad of cotton wool fixed to a small stick, used for cleaning.

Pimms – Opaque, sun‑flower yellow cream
Gin-based tradition at its finest…this refreshing beverage is almost as popular as English tea.

Giddy Kipper – Opaque, indigo shimmer
Refers to someone who is overly excited…like anyone who buys this lacquer will be!

Love all the definitions of British slang!   Source

A nude polish – that beats all others!

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always had a hard time finding the perfect nude nail polish. I’ve tried a lot (check out all the polishes below I recently had to purge from my collection!)

A couple minutes ago I decided to throw on Yummy Mummy from butter LONDON, and after one coat, I loved it! (This was after I pushed my cuticles back with a lego out of sheer desperation. FYI: It works! Who knew?)

I put two coats on – and I did not love it. Two coats of this color made it look more beige than nude, and that wasn’t the look I was hoping for. So I wiped it off – and reapplied just one coat – and voila! The perfect nude color! (I see online that a lot of people like the 2-coat color, so you may like it more than I did!)

FYI: I need to fill my ridges! I know they make products for that…. but anyhoo, that’s the new color! Isn’t it fun!


Gwyneth Paltrow teams up with Butter London again!

Gwyneth Paltrow launched a successful collaboration with British nail brand Butter London last year, and now her Goop team is doing it again!

For this collection, you’ll get three different polish colors to choose from. Starkers, The Stones and Candy Coated. There’s also a nail care set featuring the brand’s Hardwear topcoat and “BB cream for your nails,” otherwise known as Nail Foundation basecoat.

Prices range from $28 to $40, and the sets are all available now on Goop.
