Butter London Bossy Boots NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 12 - 2012

Who’s da boss? Leila’s da boss (when I’m not around – sorry Mr. L!)

It’s Leila’s 3rd  birthday party today, though she doesn’t turn three until the 16th May it was the only day available at the venue so I’ve been trying to explain to a very confused tot why it isn’t actually her birthday yet but everyone will be wishing her a Happy Birthday – cue confused face.

I’m wearing Butter London’s Bossy Boots from their Spring/Summer 2012 collection in honour of the occasion, seeing as I’ll be rounding up a few under 8s, I thought it quite appropriate!

Isn’t it Spring-like?  I love muted shades but whoulda thunk I’d go gaga for a pistachio shade like this!  I like that Butter London haven’t made it too dirgy or grey and have kept it feeling somehow fresh and airy without sounding the “woah green nails” klaxon.  I’m absolutely, positively against wearing green nail polish on your toes usually (fungal feet) but I’m gonna admit to being tempted by this one.  Talk me out of it please!

Opaque in two coats, it needs the second to get rid of pastel streaks – the formula covered nicely but did have a tendency to pool around the cuticles… thin strokes required!

Butter London Bossy Boots is available to buy online from PowderRooms, priced at £11.95

  1. Very pretty color- reminds me of a macaron! Happy day to both Little Miss L and to you & the Mr. :)

    Is it bad that this shade reminds me of the colour that public toilets and hospitals are often painted? Haha, I guess I’m not trendy enough for these kinda colours! Aw, I hope Leila has a fab day and tell her she’s lucky to get two this year 😛

  3. Argh… I’m obsessed with green nail polish at the moment. So perfect for spring & I love how it’s a bit paler than some of the other greens I’ve been seeing lately.

    It looks similar to Essie’s Absolutely Shore, loving pale greens at the moment!
