Butter London for Goop

butter london nail polishes

Butter London's collab with everyone's favorite rap enthusiast/lifestyle guru/actress Gwyneth Paltrow has resulted in a 'trifecta of bespoke lacquers' (carcinogen-free!) in three goop-tastic shades: Hampstead Heath (a deep algae green with a charcoal-y gold shimmer), Bread & Butter Pudding (an almost transparent nude), and Abso-bloody-lutely (a deep opaque cherry red), all of which feel very autumnal, and more than a little holiday- (/-gifting) appropriate. Though you generally can’t picture a girl's polish tastes running the gamut from a barely-there nude to deep burgundy and a mossy shimmer, somehow we buy it, coming from the brain of G.P.—she is nothing if not multi-dimensional.

A quick cruise through IMDB revealed some polish/Paltrow character crossover: Abso-bloody-lutely seems the perfect choice for Margot Tenenbaum's toes (remember this scene?), while Bread & Butter Pudding would be the natural pick for the effortless ex-pat Marge Sherwood (The Talented Mister Ripley). As for the subtly shiny Hamsptead Heath? We’re torn between Gwyneth's turn as Pepper Potts in the Iron Man franchise and her ill-fated crooner Kelly Canter (from Country Strong), since the sparkles would compliment Canter's boatload of sequins. But honestly, you can't really go wrong with any of the shades. Deborah Lippmann, Essie Weingarten: you've been warned.

    Ugh, Gwyneth has been on such a roll lately. Definitely holiday wish-listed.

    Those nail polish colors look pretty fab!
    I'm not super huge on dolling up my nails but if I were, I would definitely be all over these colors coming from Gwyneth Paltrow. Actually, who am I kidding?
    Even as a non-nail polish enthusiast, I definitely want to put these lovely colors on my holiday wishlist!

    GP is pretty fabulous in my mind. She always radiates this amazingly clean and glamorous aura. Everything about her just screams "PUT-TOGETHER" in the most blatant fashion. If wearing these colors will make me just a teeny itsy bitsy more like here, sign me up immediately please :)
    I love that each of the colors is so different from the others. The shimmery mossy green is so decadently natural, the deep cherry red is quite fitting for the chilly holidays ahead, and the nude is just plain refreshing.

    Let me get my hands (or fingers!) on that nail polish stat!

    LOVE. Just finished ordering. :) I don't know why GP gets such a bad rep and so much criticism I think she's the bees knees. But to each their own I suppose ! xx
