butterLONDON Molly Coddled – Radiant Orchid

While butterLONDON’s Molly Coddled is not a new shade (it’s from the Spring 2013 Sweetie Shop Collection), it IS the quintessential Pantone Color of the Year shade, Radiant Orchid. This is the exact color I imagine orchid to be; a lavender shade with a distinct pink undertone. The shade is much softer than you might expect and such a lovely color for spring.

In the bottle, Molly Coddled looks like a cool lavender/orchid but it manages to suit my warmer skin tone too. It’s a very fun, feminine, spring shade and reminds me of pastel colored Easter eggs. The formula is a cream with opaque coverage. It covers beautifully in two coats, some may even be able to get away with one.  This is one polish I like to mix with others. It looks great with two of the other Sweetie Shop polishes, Jasper, a pale yellow cream and Fiver, a pretty mint green. For this post however, I stuck to all Molly all the time.

Nail Color is the easiest way to adopt the Radiant Orchid trend: it’s inexpensive, quick to apply and can be changed at any time. Wonder what Molly Coddled means? It is an old fashioned word used both here and in the UK and means a mother’s act of coddling, sheltering and over protecting her child–these days we would probably say ” a helicopter mom.”

  1. This looks very pretty and perfect for Spring also,in my opinion.

  2. You stole my polish but you did such a beautiful job on your pictures that I’ll forgive you. I’m thrilled with Molly Coddled too. A perfect orchid polish that I loved wearing and can’t wait to wear again.

  3. Looks really pretty on you! I have a hard time pulling off this shade of polish as it tends to enhance the red in my hands. I might have to give this one a go as its such a pretty springy shade! :)
