Butter London | Lolly Brights Summer 2014

BL Lolly Brights opener

 

Butter London introduces 6 vibrant shades for Summer 2014, the Lolly Brights Collection, consisting of 4 glass-flecked shimmery hues and 2 crèmes. Known as much for their incredible formula as well as their provocatively-named lacquers, this grouping has “hot” written all over it, although I can see at least 3 of these shades transitioning beautifully into the cooler months ahead — just not yet.

All swatches done with Butter London’s Patent-Gel Top & Tails base and top coat system.

BL Chuffed swatch

Butter London | Chuffed – Tangerine base with gold and orange glass-flecked shimmer. Excellent flow, opacity and pigmentation, that ends in a brilliant (but not glossy) shine – like a citrus burst along the nails! Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

 

BL Stroppy swatch

Butter London | Stroppy – Violet base with magenta and purple glass-flecked shimmer, bearing blue undertones that gives off a slight duo chrome effect. Another easy to apply polish with the bonus of being non-staining upon removal. LOVE. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

 

BL Lolly swatch

Butter London | Lolly – Tropical pink with matching glass-flecked shimmer. With yet another amazing formula, the final look is somewhat multi-tonal, giving this shade a unique depth. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

 

BL Airy Fairy swatch

Butter London | Airy Fairy – Mermaid-tail blue with matching glass-flecked shimmer, in a slightly sheerer formula than any of the previous shades. The final look and finish here, is nothing short of brilliant. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

 

BL Sozzled swatch

Butter London | Sozzled – Kelly green crème/jelly hybrid, with an exceptional flow (totally self-levelling), intense pigmentation and über-glossy finish. TIP: do not skip base coat, to avoid any potential staining issues. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

 

BL Ladybird swatch

Butter London | Ladybird – Vividly saturated warm red with orange undertones, in yet another crème/jelly hybrid formula that almost applies itself – superb & the perfect “ladybug red” shade. BONUS: non -staining upon removal. Coats applied: 2, plus top coat

 

With their superb formulas and vivid – yet totally wearable – colours, the Lolly Brights Collection is sure to bring a smile to your face. The intricate shimmery tone of the first 4 shades, is absolutely hypnotic, especially when viewed in direct sunlight. The crèmes are not unique colour-wise, but their amazing application makes them standouts just the same. All in all, this entire collection says ‘Summer is here’ – and that’s all I want to know.

    Stroppy and Ladybird are fabulous! I do so love butter London…might have to check these out the next time I hit up my fave salon. Amazing swatches, Eugenia! You even almost make me like green!!! :P

    • Eugenia says:

      LOL! Thanks, Toya! It’s funny how many people feel exactly the same way you do about green (myself included!) In fact, the first green I ever wore was from Butter London – Bristish Racing Green – and remains my fave to this day!

  5. plasticbows says:

    I love that green!!! And I don’t usually like green…

    • Eugenia says:

      I’m not usually a green-wearer either, but this is one of the few shades I can wear without it making my skin look lobster-red, lol!

  6. Lolly is my kind of color. I own most of that type of shade from Zoya since they seem to make a lot of that kind of shade.

    • Eugenia says:

      You’re right – Zoya is pretty well-known for this type of glass-flecked shimmer, but I must say that Butter London’s formula is quite amazing as well!

  7. This is a gorgeous summer collection! I’m really liking Sozzled.
