Tag Archives: Colour Clash

Yesterday I showed you a couple of the new Colour Clash polishes, released for fall 2013 from Butter LONDON. Today I bring you a cute skittle mani featuring three of their bright colours!

You’ve already seen the beautiful crisp Cotton Buds, and look how gorgeous it looks with Pimms and Silly Billy!!

 

ButterLONDON_ColourClash-skittlesPimms is a term for a “gin-based tradition at its finest,” and is desribed as being a “refreshing beverage that is almost as popular as English tea.” A gorgeous opaque, sun‑flower yellow cream shade, Pimms is a crelly (cream jelly) polish that applies easily and dries to a gorgeous shine. On my middle finger I blended it lightly with Cotton Buds to lighten and brighten it, and on my ring finger: 2 coats alone.

Silly Billy is an opaque bright orange orange crème, and is a term for a popular clown “at fairs in Britain, and a fab nickname for anyone named William.” Another crelly-type polish, this was another dream to apply! I used two coats on my ring finger above on its own, and as you can see, it dried to a high finish.

I am totally obsessed with the Colour Clash collection and… consider me converted! I am in love with Butter LONDON lacquers.

The Colour Clash Collection is now available where Butter LONDON lacquers are sold. For more information, check out their website or follow on Facebook!

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:

ButterLondon_CottonBudsLook at that amazing shine!

 

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:

ButterLondon_CakeHoleThis 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 fall catwalks showcased bold, unexpected colour combinations, and nails were no exception. Colour Clash is a chic, surprising new collection of half tones mixed with whitened pastels and polyester brights. Dare to pair these shades for a modern way to wear colour.

“We have this gorgeous, opaque, full-cover white in the collection that I am obsessed with, not to mention that massive white nail trend we have been seeing in sport luxe editorials,” says Katie Hughes, Global Colour Ambassador. “A good white is essential as it will brighten any colour it’s placed under, but it’s also a great base colour for creating nail art as it punches up the colour. One of my favourite collections yet, Colour Clash is so fun and bold.”
