It's not often I get a hand mixed sample of nail polish, but this one is so early, early for next autumn that it's still only at sample stage. Nonie Creme, creative director of butterLONDON nail polish aimed for 'luxe grunge' for the A/W11 catwalk shows and mixed up custom colours for various designers. So, that's how this one, Bluey, came to be. The colour is quite complex (and therefore an absolute b***ard to photograph!) with blue/green tones and a hint of greenish shimmer - bigger that usual shimmers but not quite glitter. Despite its name, I find it more green than blue, but it's truly beautiful.
