Hey nail girls!
Here’s a little look at the Butter London Spring 2012 and Summer 2012 Collection.
I had a blast with some of the names. If you’re a reader of Musings from the beginning you probably remember Peter, my British x-boyfriend’s father. One of my Internet alias for gaming, forums, etc is fan_girl and Peter used to like to call me fanny girl. Needless to say if you’re British it wasn’t the best nickname in the world. Haha!
Let me know if anything catches your eye!
Founding Creative Director Nonie Creme says, “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
Light, opaque pistachio green. A beautiful take on neutral for this season
A derogatory name for someone who is pushy or bossy, (usually reserved for children)
- Disco Biscuit
Tropical hot pink with an undercurrent of tiny iridescent glitter particles
A club term from the rave days of the early 90’s for a tablet of Ecstasy
Colour Description :
A sheer, twinkling oyster shade flecked with micro glitter particles.
To be tired or exhausted. “Wow, you look knackered. What did you get up to last night?!”
A truly teal lacquer, bold and very bright.
Brit-speak for ”slut”.
- Trout Pout
An opaque shade of cantaloupe, pale and retro.
Cruel slang for a woman who has “over done” the collagen in her lips, leaving her with a rather fishy face.
What’s your favorite cockney slang?
