Swatches: Butter London Wallis & Bluey


Since the weather this week has been especially fall like (ie. rain every day, then more rain, yay!) I thought it would be a good time to get around to some new Fall polishes. I love pretty much every seasons colour families, but I think Fall just might be my favourite: the deep jewel tones and metallics that just don't quite work in warmer Summer weather.

All photos are huge, so click for full size to get all the glowy goodness.

When I first saw the promos of the fall collection, it was Wallis that caught my attention. I. Had. To. Have. It. Period. There was just something about the "tarnished, metallic olive gold, as mysterious and regal as its namesake" that I knew I had to have. Golds usually aren't for me, but the olive tones make this a gorgeous shade. It has plenty of metallic sheen/shimmer without being a glitter bomb. I love it.

Bluey "a slightly metallic dark peacock blue, perfect for fashionable birds" was kind of an impulse buy, and to be honest wasn't too sure if I liked when it first arrived. After wearing it, I can say I do enjoy it. It is an interesting blue that takes on teal and various deep green hues when in different light levels.

Butter London polishes are available online from butterlondon.com or .ca, but the shipping is high on the Canadian site. I also found them on the Shopping Channel, and have a much more reasonable shipping rate. Wallis and Bluey can be found here.

I'm very pleased to have these two shades be a part of my polish wardrobe. I know Wallis will find it's way onto my nails quite a bit this fall. What are your fave fall shades?
