Butter London Autumn / Winter 2013 Colour Clash collection review + comparison swatches (Cake-Hole, Silly Billy, Wellies, and Giddy Kipper)

         If my last post (on Kate Spade Live Colorfully) is any indication, I think it's fair to say that I love my colors! This fall, Butter London's given me a great way to get my ROYGBIV on with the brand new Butter London Colour Clash collection (Autumn/Winter 2013). I've been enjoying a few nail colors from the collection, courtesy of Butter London, and have a review and comparison swatches to share with you today!

Butter London Cake-Hole
          Butter London Cake-Hole is a nearly neon pink nail polish with a semi-matte finish.

Butter London Silly Billy
          Butter London Silly Billy is a tangerine (not to be confused with orange) creme nail polish. Butter London Wellies is a yellow-green creme nail polish. I like how clean the color looks; it's clearly reminiscent of the eponymous British rain boots!

Butter London Wellies
           Butter London Giddy Kipper is an indigo nail lacquer with a very subtle shimmer. I would say it's slightly more purple than is shown in my swatch below. Strong sunlight tends to make it more blue, while shade brings out the purple tones.

Butter London Giddy Kipper
          When it comes to nail polish, nuances are everything, so I've prepared a set of comparison swatches for the Butter London Colour Clash collection. Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic (reviewed here) is a cooler hot pink than Butter London Cake-Hole, which is comparatively lighter, more neon, and matte. Sephora by OPI Hi-Def is a solid orange, while Butter London Silly Billy is lighter and more tangerine. Butter London Wellies is a yellow-green; you can see the green tones when compared with the bright yellow of Butter London Cheeky Chops (reviewed here). The intensity of color is similar between the two.You can appreciate the indigo tones in Butter London Giddy Kipper when compared to the bright blue of Essie Bouncer It's Me.

        The Butter London Colour Clash collection has a righteous rainbow of bright nail colors for this fall! I especially like how each of the four colors shown have a crisp, clean feel. My current favorites from the bunch are Butter London Silly Billy and Butter London Wellies; they're nice renditions of tricky-to-wear colors.

         Thanks for reading! Which Butter London Colour Clash nail color stands out to you? What Butter London polishes have you tried recently? What brights are you wearing now?

Love, Dovey.

  1. Hi Dovey,
    It looks like my hunt for the perfect blue polish for this season is over now! I really like Giddy Kipper's purple tone and shimmer; it really fits my bill!

  2. Oooh, I love Cake-Hole, actually! Pinks are appealing to me when they are so neon bright! And of course, Kipper is magnificent!

  3. Hey Dovey, wow is this really the autumn/winter collection??? Great to see so many brights! Cake Hole and Giddy Kipper are fabulous! I've been wearing Chanel Lilis a lot this summer, and my bottle of Dior Spring Ball is showing obvious signs of use!

  4. Oh Dovey! This is so pretty =D I love the gorgeous bright colors!

  5. Looks like a very colourful fall/winter ahead! I like how the brands are mixing up their seasonal palettes this year and making it very confusing and exciting for us, haha.

    Wow are these ever bright Dovey! Kind of cool how they went the opposite of what we expect!

  7. Amazing colours and swatches!! Thank you :) x x

  8. I love this departure from typical 'fall' colors! I know it's a comparison pic but Primrose Hill just shot to the top of my wishlist, again!

  9. Loving that last photo of the rainbow nail wheel! :) I like the look of Giddy Kipper, and coincidentally Kipper is our family dog's name. It looks like vibrant color may be a trend for fall/winter this year, as I read earlier today that Guerlain's holiday collection has neon colors in it!

  10. Hi Dovey, Does Giddy Kipper stain upon removal??

  11. Whoa I like the look of Giddy Kipper! It looks super cute :D

  12. These colors make me so happy. I know my daughter would want me to paint each of her nails with all these colors so she could have rainbow-like hands!
