Butter – Scoundrel

Wednesday, 12 May, 2010

Don’t you love that word? Scoundrel. It sounds so old world and yet delivers a punch…these days it would garner a giggle or three. However, I’m not laughing at this color by Butter.

It’s not a glitter, but a fabulous creme. I happened to like this shade because it’s that cross between a darker shade of pink with enough purple in it to fall into an almost pink/lavender category. However, this shade is richer and just more luscious. How can anyone not love this color?!

Application was a little lumpy and hard to work with on the first coat but it all worked out on the second. Still smells kind of nice and not like nail polish.

For Hubby – Butter's British Racing Green

Wednesday, 28 April, 2010

A lot of the time, my husband misses life in the UK – the politics, the food, the beer, his family…Well, maybe sometimes not his family. 😉 Anyway, Butter came up with a color that was the standard for Britain’s racing cars and was called aptly enough, British Racing Green which was/is a dark green that wasn’t quite forest, but was dignified and very pretty.

Butter London (oddly enough, it’s an American company!) came up with their version of it and called it…British Racing Green. It’s sexier, sleeker and one I’d gladly sport on my nails when I want a sexy green.

Even better news? Butter’s Three Free and claims they are vegan! 🙂 Just a small note – Butter doesn’t even smell like nail polish. It’s not harsh or overbearing.

Deceptive…yet lovely! Looks like another green polish here.

Then hello sunlight! Look at that subtle silvery/pearlescent-ish shimmer that runs through it and keeps it from being like the others!

Purple! (and a green)

Tuesday, 27 April, 2010

Not quite keeping up with my self induced promise of mostly green, I present PURPLE! I have more than 18 shades of purple polish between here and Arizona. The colors on this wheel are partially here, but mostly in our desert home.

It was a pain in the butt trying to take a pic of that color wheel and I realized I should’ve broken it up into 4 separate parts, but I was feeling kind of lazy and I hope that when you click on the pics, they become huge and you can see the difference in the colors.

You’ll find lots of shimmer, creme, a matte and a couple of holographics.  Enjoy!

The Promised Green!

What I love about this gorgeous green with a slight yellow undertone is that it has a gorgeous micro glitter that contains more green than gold. One has to literally have it up close and very personal to see it. My camera didn’t do it any justice in capturing the glitter. The very faint yellow in this (heck, it could’ve been the gold micro glitter come to think of it!) wasn’t very strong and didn’t look awful on me. Quite the opposite – it was very flattering! Another stellar choice on my part from BB Couture. This color is from their Men’s Collection. Love it.

It's like…Butter!

Monday, 8 March, 2010

Ah…it is like butta! The colors are fabulous, the application flawless…the smell isn’t as revolting as other polishes, thank God. It still smells like nail polish, but it’s a lighter smell — is that even possible? 🙂

One of those eponymous greys for this spring. It’s similar to Chanel’s Particuliere and Color Club’s High Society. This has a bit more grey than the others…it’s nice, but I def prefer Tramp Stamp.

I don’t know why but this color really had love written all over for me. It looks like a light raisin color in the sun, but it’s not. It’s truly a rich, gorgeous purple-y brown…freaking fabulous. The color is closer to real life in the shade shot. Isn’t it beautiful?
