Butter London Spring 2012 Summer 2012 Collection

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.”

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse. If you’re that person feel free to reach out and leave a comment or follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Bloglovin‘.

    I looooove these couleurs but these are too expensive for me. (I just ordered some Essie and Orly nailpolish. *o*)

  • lesleyk

    I didn’t know these were spring releases. I actually ordered Disco Biscuit and Knackered a few weeks ago from Dermstore.com, and while I haven’t tried them out, I love the way they look in the bottle.

  • Corinne

    I’m wearing Knackered right now on my nails. LOVE the duochrome AND sparkles

    • Jennifer

      Did you think it was sheer? Did you layer it over another color or wear it alone? I’m on the fence on whether to buy it or not.

  • Mara

    I’m partial to Bossy Boots and Trout Pout (teehee, funny). They just might be my first Butter London purchases. How about you, Muse? Planning to haul any of these? Which ones?

  • Nikki

    Trout pout and Slapper are my faves for sure!!! And my least favorite would be the first one. I don’t think it would compliment my fair skin. Kind of a sickly shade. I don’t know it might work?

  • Jennifer

    I want Knackered & Disco Biscuit. But I saw swatches online and they are very sheer. I’m sure they will end up in my hands anyways. (: Oh to be a polish addict.

  • Sarah

    knackered, disco biscuit and slapper MUST be mine!!! I can’t wait to see swatches on the blogs…

  • Laura

    Bossy Boots is from the children’s book Little Miss Bossy – I have to read it regulary to my daughter
