Butter London Colour Clash Collection: Giddy Kipper, Silly Billy, and Pimms review and swatches

Butter LONDON always has terrific collections and this latest one will definitely get you noticed! The Fall 2013 Colour Clash Collection colors (they became available on June 27th) are beautiful on their own, but they also lend themselves to some cool and unique nail art options. They are Butter LONDON’s modern take on bright, bold colors.

Giddy Kipper is an opaque indigo shimmer. A ‘giddy kipper’ is an overly excited person…which is what I was when I saw this shade. I don’t have anything like it in my collection so I was pretty giddy.

Silly Billy is an opaque, fire-orange cream. It’s also a nickname for anyone named Bill who is also a bit goofy. Silly Billy is the perfect creme orange shade, I love it. This gorgeous orange is a perfect pedi color for long, steamy days at the beach. This was slightly more sheer than Giddy Kipper so you might want to opt for three coats.

Pimms is an opaque, sunflower yellow creme that was named after a gin-based British drink that is apparently as popular as breakfast tea.

Pimms drink or Pimms nail polish?  How about both!!

Pimms was actually a bit more sheer than Silly Billy, so you will definitely want three coats for the full effect.

And just for fun, here’s all three colors used for a pretty summer pedicure.

I love these shades, I think they are really fun and extremely versatile. How about you, are you into more bold colors for summer?  – Lisa
