Butter London always knows how to get us drooling and smiling all at once. The fun names make us smile, while the stunning shades make us drool. The collection releasing for the Fall/Winter 2012 season brings out HOLOS and other jaw dropping hues that are quintessential Butter London.

I have three of the new shades to share with you in Dodgy Barnett, Trustafarian, and Shag (The name Shag reminds me of the movie from back in the day, but it meant dance... not knockin' boots lol)

Dodgy Barnett

(blurry to show pretties)


Dodgy Barnett is a silver holo and in the sun the effect is really strong. It painted on flawlessly and was so smooth. The holo melts to your nails like butter and shimmers like diamond dust. The formula is on the thin side, so three coats were needed for full opacity.

And, because I'm fun, I saturated the snozberries out of this pic and thought the holo looked fun... so I share because I'm nice like that.

Trustafarian is a seafoam green holo. The effect isn't as strong as Dodgy Barnett, even in the sun, but it's definitely in it's own class of beauty. The formula is very thin, but was nearly opaque in three coats (shown above).

Shag is a metallic burnt burgundy with subtle flecks of gold. It's really quite stunning and the shade I think of when I think of Autumn, because of the changing leaves and a fiery evening sunset. The formula was easy to work with and was opaque in two coats.

You may have similar holos, but if not then all three of these shades are must haves. The formula is amazing and easy to work with.
