butter LONDON Sweet Somethings

Happy Monday!  Did you all have a good weekend?  I had Saturday AND Sunday off, which is a rarity for me!  Today I have the butter LONDON Sweet Somethings Collection for you – at least I have 3 of the 4 polishes!  The Sweet Somethings Collection is butter LONDON’s bridal collection which debuted at the Monique Lhuillier.

butter LONDON Pink Ribbon (Sweet Nothings Collection)

Pink Ribbon is a light soft pink with a hint of shimmer.  When I saw this in the bottle I thought is would be a streaky sheer mess, but when I applied it I was blown away!  The opacity built up quickly in two coats, and it seems so bright to me!

butter LONDON Petticoat (Sweet Nothings Collection)

Petticoat is a creamy light blue.  It’s also not what I expected.  I was thinking it would be a soft baby blue, but this blue is saturated and bright!  Very pigmented and shiny!  Shown here with two coats.

Doily is a sheer overcoat filled with white matte bar glitter and different sizes of hex glitter.  It is intended to look like lace when applied to the nails.  I love the delicate, ethereal look it gives when layered over Pink Ribbon! 

There is one more polish in this collection that I don't have, called Alabaster Glaze.  You can see it swatched on Peachy Polish.

I’ve gotta give butter LONDON props.  I thought this was going to be just another sheer bridal collection.  Instead they have given us some awesome polishes anyone can where, anytime!

The Sweet Somethings Fashion Size Set is available now at ULTA.com and zappos.com, where it retails for $35.00.  I’ve already spotted it in person at ULTA too!  Will you be picking it up?
