After the long, drab winter, when summer makes her appearance (yes, I assigned her a female gender), I look forward to bright skies, bright flowers and bright fun nail polish. No one does brights better than butter LONDON and they do not disappoint with their 2014 Lolly Brights Summer Collection.
Sheer, kaleidoscopic colors combine with innovative formulas for a collection that technicolor dreams are made of.
- - Chuffed – semi-sheer orange with gold flecks
- - Sozzled – kelly green cream
- - Ladybird – bright tomato red cream
- - Stroppy – metallic purple with red, pink and blue flecks
- - Lolly – berry metallic with silver shimmer
- - Airy Fairy – bright medium metallic blue
When I received the vibrant Stroppy, London Lolly and Sozzled I couldn’t wait to get them on my tips and toes. Seriously, I went straight to the salon and bedazzled my toes with Stroppy and tickled my tips with Lolly.
Stroppy is a grape metallic with a mix of red, blue and pink shimmer. Stunning and very unique!
Lolly was calling to me so I had to put it on my nails immediately. This is a great name as it really does look like a lollipop, or to us yanks a sucker. Lolly is a cross between bright red and a hot pink; it can appear as either one depending upon the light. Either way, this is a gorgeous, fun shade to wear. The iridescent shimmer is just perfect–there are no chunks of glitter, just the ideal amount of shimmer to sparkle in the sunlight.
Sozzled, the kelly green cream is going to take a bit of getting used to for me. I’m not used to wearing greens, especially this bright and I’m not so sure it plays well with my skintone.
I had no issues with wear or application. Two coats was all that was needed with all three of these shades for opacity and no streaking, bubbling, etc. butter LONDON is 5 free- Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor.
Bottom Line: the butter LONDON Lolly Brights collection is vibrant, fun and epitomizes summer. Some of these shades remind me of popsicles!
