Don’t ask me to pick a favorite color from the Butter London Spring/Summer 2012 collection because I can’t do it. After I swatch a collection, I usually know exactly which color I want to wear for the rest of the week, but I can’t decide. I may just have to close my eyes and pick one lol. These colors are so fun, unique, and gorgeous!
All of the swatches were topped with my favorite super shiny quick dry top coat and all pics were taken in direct sunlight.
Bossy Boots is a beautiful light pistachio green creme nail polish. All of the cremes in this collection were a little streaky, but settled smooth after 3 coats.
Disco Biscuit is a hot pink sheer jelly with a purple-blue shimmer. This color came to life when I stepped outside. The sparkle was unreal. I used 3 coats in this swatch.
Knackered – is an oyster-silver metallic polish with a red, purple, green, and yellow shimmer. This duochrome shifts from purple to a greyish-green and dazzles when it hits the light. This color is a bit sheer in one coat, but I loved it at all levels between sheer and opaque. There were no visible nail lines after 3 coats.
Trout Pout is a bright salmon pink creme nail polish with a hint of cantaloupe. I wore it on my tan toes in Destin and it was so fun and bright against the beach sand. This color was also streaky but evened out with 3 coats.
Slapper is a gorgeous bright blue in direct sunlight, as you see in this pic; however, it is a bit more teal green blue indoors. This is one of those colors that is difficult to photograph, but this is how it looks in sunlight.
My Thoughts On Butter London’s S/S 2012 Collection
This was my first experience using Butter London. The pros, the gorgeous colors, far outweighed a couple of things I didn’t like about this collection. The cremes were a little streaky, but did go on smooth after a couple of coats and I didn’t care for the brushes. The brushes were thin, so it was hard to get a smooth line of polish above my cuticle. With that said, I have a good size collection of nail polish and I really think these 5 unique shades may be my top 5 favorite polishes right now. The cremes were beautiful and bright and the shimmers dazzled!
So what do you all think of Butter London’s Spring/Summer collection? See any colors you’d like to pick up? Have you ever tried this brand? If so, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
