butter london

Butter London NailpolishButter London NailpolishButter London Nailpolish

i was in whistler last weekend for work and i discovered a little beauty boutique. i was bored so i perused the products to see what they had. from afar i noticed this interesting muddy grey nail polish from a brand called butter london. i had to have it. it's such an unusual shade. i discovered later that butter london nail polishes won't give you cancer! they are formaldehyde, toluene and dbp free. i want to get two more shades pictured above- the blue is called "mariner" and the green "thames"

also, they are having a promotion right now: you can trade in three of your old crusty cancer-causing polishes for one fresh new butter london polish (at their stores and participating boutiques) since i don't travel with three bottles of nail polish i couldn't get a free one, but i was happy to purchase one anyway.

That sounds really awesome, I wonder if I could find any in Manitoba...
I love that companies are really trying to move away from toxic substances, what a nice change!

another line i found that has great colours (and also non-toxic) is Ciaté (avail. at hqhair.com) and china glaze which is available at a lot of nail salons. there is an amazing true grey that china glaze has (called recycle) that i want!

Very enticing! Since Hard Candy stopped making their amazing colours some years ago I've mourned the unavailability of a pavement grey. This might be the closest thing I've seen to it yet.... I've just now snapped one up.
