How ’bout a little Arm Candy?

Posted on

I haven’t talked about Butter London for a while for several reasons.  One, there have been few new polishes.  Two, the ones that have been released haven’t grabbed me.  Three, the SRP for BL polishes is $15 and that’s become unreasonable to me most of the time, considering what other brands and quality is out there.  Unless they come out with something unique — Scuppered, I’m lookin’ at you — then I’ll pass.

Nevertheless, I’ve liked/loved most of their polishes I’ve tried, and I do like to point out new collections.  The latest one is called Arm Candy and is a collaboration with Allure (the magazine, I presume).

BL Allure

Left to right:

  • It’s Vintage — opaque rust creme
  • I’m On the List — rose gold metallic
  • Lust or Must? — opaque charcoal brown creme
  • Statement Piece — opaque orange-red creme
  • Disco Nap — charcoal glitter
  • Nude Stilettos — sheer pink-nude creme

There will also be a four-piece mini-set, with completely different colors and an SRP of $30:

BL Allure mini

  • Violet’s Revenge — blue-purple creme
  • The Sweet Spot — dusty pink creme
  • So Major! — loden green shimmer
  • Front Row — wine creme

I can’t say that any of the colors are grabbing me.  Really, out of ten polishes, three of them are nudey-pinks?  Yawn.  I want something else for fall… but don’t know what it is yet!

  1. I love these colors — so much that I think I have them all from other brands. I think it’s a good fall palette, but nothing grabs me here. Maybe I’ll pick up the fashion set in a sale, but otherwise I’ll wait until butter gets its mojo back.

    • Getting its mojo back — perfectly stated IMO. I wonder if having Creative Director Nonie Creme leave to start her own company (Colour Prevails) is why BL has hit the blahs. ???

  2. The only one that grabs my attention is the rose gold metallic but that’s only because I don’t have one already, can you think of any other rose gold metallic polishes out there that you can recommend? And I hope you enjoyed your internet-free days, it’s good to have you back!!
