Pantone Universe may have declared the color of the year to be emerald but the nail polish companies weren't listening. This Spring we have a ton of pastels and a ton of nudes. Some of them are marching to their own drummer, like China Glaze with it's Glitz collection, and the gorgeous and unique Illamasqua I'Mperfection collection (coming up on this blog!) but all the same, lots of pastels and nudes.
butter's collection called "Starkers", which is just a funny word to me, is a small set of three nude like shades that I don't think try to be a true nude, but try to capture the essence without trying to satisfy every single skin tone out there. That wouldn't even be possible, despite what the foundation adverts try to convince us of. None of these are true nude on me, the closest I have ever seen to that being Deborah Lippmann's Careless Whisper, and that's not even dead on. I don't sparkle. I sometimes wish I did...but I'm just ordinary.
The first I'm going to show you is Crumpet, which is described by butter as "Opaque warm caramel cream", which is a really description.
Polish n Philosophy...one of the many services I provide. But it's truth, emmaright?
This is really pretty and very wearable no matter how conservative your office is. Surprisingly the milky cream tone of this doesn't give me lobster paws. If you are practically glow in the dark like me, this one is a nice neutral for you.
I feel like I'm not making sense. I hope that makes sense.
Like it? Have you checked these out? I don't know that they've advertised them much. I got an email because I'm a "Bezzie Mate" which just means I'm signed up for their promotions, and it's on their home page, but I haven't seen these around much.
Thought or observations?
