Butter London Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection


Sequins! Velvet! Satin! Tweed!  This season, the catwalks were abundant with rich texture!  We’ve translated this to nails through the infusion of glitter particles and metallic and holographic finishes. The colour tones speak to “earthiness” but are not specifically earth tones – think rust, shimmering greens and silvers. This collection feels future-forward but not futuristic. This season is all about using texture to add interest and depth to your look!
