A couple of weeks ago, I was sent these beautiful nail shades from butter LONDON, a UK brand best known for creating nail products free of harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, toluene, DBP or parabens. For spring/summer 2013, butter LONDON has gone down the sugary sweet 1950s route, with a selection of soft pastel shades. I have dreams of being the type of organised person who paints each nail a different person – perhaps with cute-as-a-button polka dot accents!

I love butter LONDON’s imagery and logos, and the fact that they’re free of nasties doesn’t hurt, either! I’ll report back when I’ve tried the nail shades, but I’m very excited to give them a go . . . the last time I painted my nails was with MAC’s gorgeous bright red Flaming Rose, so it’ll be a nice palate cleanser to go for one of these cotton candy shades! (And that should give you an idea of how bad I am with my nails – I can never manage to get my act together enough to paint my nails regularly.)

butter LONDON nail polishes are available online at, Avoca, Harvey Nichols, Millies and The Loop.
