butter LONDON Spring/Summer 2012 Preview

Hi loves!

 Please enjoy the following press release from butter LONDON.

butter LONDON™ and Founding Creative Director Nonie Creme are pleased to introduce the new S/S 12 lacquer collection.  

Says Creme,  “What a season! Pops of neon colour everywhere, tempered by sherbet pastels and cool neutrals. It left us plenty to play with in the nail realm.  I’ve mixed a couple of softer opaque shades in cantaloupe and pale pistachio, and followed up with an intense retro turquoise and slightly glittery hot pink.  Finally, a quietly marvelous sheer oyster that packs a tiny punch with micro glitter particles for those seeking a new way to wear neutral. The message this season is KNOW who you are, then BE who you are! It’s all about the Individual this season, and the beauty world is yours to rule.”

Bossy Boots

Pink Wednesday!! Bettina Groovie

Happy Pink Wednesday!

  I've been pretty inconsistent on my Pink Wednesdays lately... I hope I can still sit on the cool table. Today I have an awesome Bettina color that rocked my socks a few months ago and it is still rocking my socks right now. This pretty comes from their Disco Collection, which was a HUGE hit with me. I also got to play with my Red Angel plates that the Hubs got me for Christmas. He is just awesome like that.
 For details about this mani and swatch pics of Groovie just keep reading after the jump.
