A surprising twist for a fall launch, Butter LONDON has launched the Colour Clash collection for Fall 2013, consisting of five bright shades and a gorgeous, opaque white. You may have expected these to be summer shades, but Butter LONDON dared to live on the edge, fully expecting them to be paired with the muted shades of fall!
Today I have for you two of my favourites of this collection – let’s start with the crisp, clean beauty of Cotton Buds! A pure, opaque white creme, Cotton Buds was a dream to apply and wear. If you love white polish (I adore white polish!), you know what a pain it can sometimes be to apply, including streaking. Cotton Buds was incredible; applying with buttery, creamy ease, and drying to a super high shine. I think I wore Cotton Buds for five days before finally changing it, but all I had in that time to indicate wear was a tiny chip on one nail. Talk about endurance!
And here is the gorgeous shade at two coats:
Changing gears to a bright hot pink, described as a nearly-neon pink cream, Cake Hole is a beauty. Venturing into coral territory, Cake Hole is hot, hot, hot and just as dreamy to apply as Cotton Buds. It has a slight jelly consistency, making it a touch less opaque than Cotton Buds, yet it applies evenly and dries quickly. I had to use top coat to bring out the shine in Cake Hole as it did not dry to quite the high shine as the above polish. Here it is at two easy coats with top coat:
This was my first experience with Butter LONDON’s lacquers, and now I finally realize what the fuss is about. The lacquers are incredible from application to finish to wear! Even after days of wear, the polish held up and refused to fade. I noticed the longevity when removing the polish – it is definitely built for endurance. The Colour Clash Collection is now available where Butter LONDON lacquers are sold. For more information, check out their website or follow on Facebook!~xo
