Beauty 411: butter LONDON Spring/Summer 2012 Lacquer Collection

butter LONDON and Founding Creative Director Nonie Creme are pleased to introduce the new S/S 12 lacquer collection.

“What a season!” Says Creme, “Pops of neon colour everywhere, tempered by sherbet pastels and cool neutrals. It left us plenty to play with in the nail realm. I’ve mixed a couple of softer opaque shades in cantaloupe and pale pistachio, and followed up with an intense retro turquoise and slightly glittery hot pink. Finally, a quietly marvelous sheer oyster that packs a tiny punch with micro glitter particles for those seeking a new way to wear neutral. The message this season is KNOW who you are, then BE who you are! It’s all about the Individual this season, and the beauty world is yours to rule.”
