Butter London Spring 2013 Collection - Sweetie Shop
This collection for spring consists of six new shades of polish, one that is neutral and the others are colorful hues. I had seen pictures of Fiver and Molly Coddled in magazines for this month and these are my two favorite shades so far from the collection. I am ready for pastels on my hands and toes and it appears that there will be some great choices in this collection. And the name Sweetie Shop just makes me think of an ice cream shop and all the pretty shades that are in the counter.
The Nordstrom website provides the best description of the polish formula and background that I can find (even better than the company's website) so I have included this to help anyone who is not familiar with this brand. "What is 3 Free? butter LONDON is a 3 Free company: no formaldehyde, no toluene, no DBP (dibutyl phthalate). This luxury nail lacquer is high-fashion, heavily pigmented and safe. butter LONDON believes in rock 'n' roll. Great Britain. And Fashion." And so do their legions of fans...
The new shades in the Sweetie Shop collection are...
- Cuppa - toasted opaque tan creme
- Fiver - opaque icy mint creme
- Fruit Machine - opaque punchy carnation creme
- Jasper - opaque bright pastel yellow creme
- Kerfuffle - opaque coral pink creme
- Molly Coddled - opaque orchid creme
Molly Coddled is my favorite shade and it is the picture that I have included here so that everyone can see how pretty this shade is and how perfect it will be for spring! I will be adding this shade to my Most Wanted list for next month and I will begin the search for it. In fact, I want flats in this hue and a cardigan too. This might just be one of the prettiest lavender shades that I have seen lately.
Fiver is also very high on my shopping list, I don't have a mint green shade and I have been wanting one ever since I started seeing spring nail polishes in magazines, this one will be coming home with me from Ulta the next time that I can find it. Fruit Machine is a great shade for spring and summer also and I would like to take this bubble gum pink home with me too. I have been talking recently about my issues with storing nail polishes and this collection is only going to make the problem worse but I love these three hues and I will be adding to my polish collection this spring!
