Yes I know this is a nail polish post and this is kind of related…
Butter London gets Lippy
Image - Butter London Facebook
I was excited to discover that Butter London has introduced a range of lipglosses to match some of their best nail polishes and had to share. Currrently available at Butter London and Ulta, Musings of a Muse has some swatches of these lipglosses, which look beautifully pigmented. I’m not normally in the habit of matching nails and lips and wouldn’t necessarily pair them as suggested, but I wouldn’t kick any of these out of my makeup bag and would happily mix & match!
Butter London Spring 2012 Nail Colours
L to R: Disco Biscuit, Bossy Boots, Slapper, Trout Pout, Knackered
I’m bursting to try these, in particular Knackered, the mermaidy colour on the right.
YSL Duo Vernis No 8
I fell in love with these two shades when I saw them swatched by my friend Alice on Super Gorgeous blog. To me they are the perfect shade of orange and pink, particularly the orange. I think these shades would look amazing with a tan!
Chanel May and June
The Chanel colours aren’t a whole lot different from the YSL, though slightly softer and more pastel toned. If only they weren’t £17.50 each…
Models Own new Beetlejuice 2012
L to R: Copper Pot, Tropical Sun, Indian Ocean
While I think all of these look striking in their own right, the one I most want to try is Indian Ocean, another mermaidy shade (I’ve always had a penchant for mermaids!). These are out on Monday 19th March 2012 and will cost £5 from Boots or modelsownit. I’m also rather taken by the look of the Models Own Nail Art pens - have any of you tried them or would you recommend any others?
Nubar Jellybean Collection
L to R: Blue Raspberry, Lemon, Strawberry
I adore Nubar and adore Jellybeans - and while I love the idea of this collection, I can’t help thinking that its creators could have had a touch more fun with it. The colours could have had a little more oomph and some of them are just a little too ordinary for my liking…. but pretty nonetheless. There are 8 colours in the collection and the above 3 are my favourites - all are available at Beauty Bay for a reasonable £5.50 each.
What are your favourite new Spring Summer nail colours - have I missed any spectacular ones?
