butter LONDON Spring/Summer 2012 Swatches
butter LONDON (I don’t know why I am always compelled to write it the way they have it on their bottles) has a new spring/summer collection out featuring five new shades!
I checked out four of the five (the one missing is Slapper, a bright teal creme) and I really like them! Interesting colors, not very common and really good formula for all.
Trout Pout is a pale cantaloupe/coral creme. Honestly I didn’t think much of this one in the bottle but absolutely love it on my nails. It’s not pink, It’s not peach. It’s not orange. It’s not coral. It’s a perfect mix of them all and super spring-like and flattering. Great formula, just two coats. I adore it.
Bossy Boots is a soft pistachio green creme. Has a hint of putty to it. I love it. I love strange greens and weird neutrals. And while it’s an odd color, it’s not SO strange you can’t wear it. Great formula, just two coats.
Disco Biscuit is a warm fuchsia pink with iridescent glitter. Gorgeous! It is sheer, therefore you need at least three coats. but it builds up nicely, and it’s super pretty. I don’t normally like colors where there is nail see-through, but this one is fabulous.
Knackered is a soft lavender/pink with holographic micro glitter. Again, this is sheer so you might want to layer it. It does build up but you will still have nail see-through. The micro glitter does seem to maybe settle into the polish a bit so some of it looks a little “lumpy” in there.

Here you can see how cool it looks over another darker color. The purple really comes out and make it very rich looking.
Overall: Good strong collection. I really liked Trout Pout, Bossy Boots and Disco Biscuit the best, and I think if I had seen Slapper in person, I would have love it also.
What do you think about these ones? Which are your favorites here?
