Butter London Holiday 2012 Swatches

Happy Manicure Mondays on a Tuesday :) We officially have our house up for sale, so instead of working on my manis, we were out of the house while people were looking through it the entire 3 day weekend. We’re so excited about the interest it’s received after only a week on the market, so fingers crossed that it sells soon!

Today I have Butter London’s new Holiday 2012 collection swatches for you all. This glitter collection is so gorgeous and the colors, like all other Butter London glitters, dazzle so brilliantly when the sun hits your nails. The inspiration for this collection was jeweled collars, sequins and metallic embellishments seen at Fashion Week. Their colors are so stand-out, yet totally wearable at the same time!

Butter London Fairy Cake Swatch

Fairy Cake, the Brit term for cupcake, is my favorite of the entire collection. I wish the camera could have picked up on the disco ball effect from this “diamonds in a bottle” polish {shine bright like a diamond is now stuck in my head lol}. It literally looks like my engagement ring when it hits the sun, with the glittery gray base and flecks of multi-colored iridescent glitter. This would make the perfect New Year’s Eve manicure!

Butter London Scuppered Swatch

Scuppered is in the spirit of the military trend that is so popular right now and I ended up wearing this beautiful bronze nail polish with flecks of green glitter for Veteran’s Day this weekend.

Butter London Jack The Lad Swatch

Jack The Lad is the most gorgeous forest green glitter with an overlay of teal micro-shimmer! This is definitely a fun new take on the traditional holiday green.

Butter London Fiddlesticks Swatch

Fiddlesticks is a brilliant semi-matte hot pink magenta glitter nail polish suspended in a raspberry base.

Butter London Scallywag Swatch

Scallywag is a full coverage, bright turquoise blue glitter with a clear base. Like all of the colors in this collection, this blue comes to life in sunlight.

My Thoughts On Butter London’s 2012 Holiday Collection

I had a much better experience with this collection of Butter London polish than I did with the Butter London Spring/Summer 2012 line. Of course the formulas are different as those were cremes and this collection is glitter, so that will offer up a different experience in application. These polishes went on so smoothly in one coat; however, I went for two coats of each for depth of color.

So what do you all think of Butter London’s Holiday 2012 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.
