So this one might not be completely nail polish related, but butter London sent me information about their new LIPPYs which will be exclusive to Ulta for march and coming out everywhere else in April! Theres a new trend, matching your nail polish and lips! butter LONDON is right on top of it with LIPPY, lip-glosses that match a few of their famous polishes!

butter LONDON™ Enters Lip Category with Launch of LIPPY
butter LONDON™, the cult phenomenon of the nail industry, built their reputation on cutting edge colour.  Their 3 Free nail lacquers are create backstage at Fashion Week and have made their way from catwalk to sidewalk in record time.  This season, butter LONDON™ will expand their hold on colour with the launch of LIPPY, a range of long-wearing, lacquer-like lip glosses in shades to match their famous nail lacquers. 

As a backstage fixture, the brand noticed a growing trend for S/S 2012 in "matchy-matchy" manicures, pedicures, and lips.  This elegant, classic look is making a comeback, but modernized with fresh new colours.  The LIPPY colours are rich and densely pigmented for a look that's deliberate, high fashion, and luxe, just like the brand’s nail lacquers.

LIPPY will launch with five bespoke butter LONDON™ shades – Primrose Hill Picnic, Snog, Trout Pout, Yummy Mummy and Teddy Girl – in April.  (Ulta will have exclusive availability in March)

Dictionary Definition:  LIPPY – British slang for someone who makes impertinent or cheeky remarks.  (Glosses are $17 each)

LIPPY products do not contain parabens, petroleum, phthalates, sulphates or bismuth.  butter LONDON™ is available at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport flagship store, <> , and in fashion boutiques, specialty retailers, and beauty apothecaries around the globe. 

We believe in Rock & Roll. Great Britain. And Fashion.

Manicure of the Day! + tutorial!

It's the First day of Spring! I wanted to celebrate by sharing a cute flower mani design with you! I took pictures along the way to show you how to create this look! This is my Violet Mani, featuring Zoya Kendal!,  I love Kendal, even if Zoya intended it as a winter color, I feel Kendal is also a perfect pastel for the spring! Kendal is a beautiful lavender creme that works perfectly for this design! I also used white, yellow, and purple acrylic paint! Acrylic paint can be found at your local craft store, Michael’s and ACMoore.
