NOTD - Butter London Toff

2.03.2012

I've been meaning to post this for quite some time now.
This simple and posh looking color was almost impossible to capture since it dramatically changes depends on lighting.
I finally managed to take a couple of pictures that look close to real life (at least to me). :)





Toff is not an easy color to describe.
To me it still falls into the purple/mauve category, but there are rose and brown thrown in as well so that makes the color dusty and more suitable for colder months. 
I know now everyone is swatching pastels for spring (especially shimmery greens!) but I am not feeling it just yet. 
(It just got cold and windy again here in the NYC after a few days of unseasonably mild weather. ;-/ )
I think this would be a perfect transitional color for the season.
Not too light, not too dark, just the way I am feeling right now. ;)

Toff is a part of Fall/Winter 2011 collection.

  15. i highly recommend Butter London. i always tend to compare this brand to Deborah Lippmann and BL is the winner in my book! :)
    their creme finish ones are amazing.

    the formula is excellent. i've had some trouble with glittery ones but no creme finish Butter London polish has disappointed me, yet!
    2 coats covers evenly and perfectly. :)

  28. sooo pretty! how do u get your polish to look so glossy & shiny?? i think this is a beautiful color. im def not ready to wear pastels yet. actually i never really like wearing light color np hahaha even in spring or summer i'll sometimes break out a dark vampy color. ehhh who cares, they're my nails! hahaha

    ReplyDelete
  29. yea I totally know what you mean, it's a little early for pastel nail shades for me. I love this color on you and the mauve is cool.
    Thanks for sharing this shade, following you now

  30. thanks for stopping by and adding me to your list. you are on my reading list as well. :)
    i think i will eventually wear some of the trends but i am dark purple polish kind of gal at heart. lol

    ReplyDelete
  31. thanks! :)
    it is actually the top coat i use.
    i usually top my polish with Seche Vite or Poshe fast drying top coats. they make polish dry in a couple minutes and add really great shine. Seche Vite is initially shinier and used at lots of professional salons. hths!

    i agree with your polish color preference. i won't wear any pastel before i rock some darks couple more times. ;)

  48. Your pictures look like they should be in a magazine ad. They almost look fake! I mean that in the best way though, the shine is glorious!

    ReplyDelete
  49. lol. thanks, Feelo!
    Seche Vite is the bomb.
    (let me tell you the secret, tho. Seche is the shinest initially but Poshe maintains shine longer. they are two of my favorite fast drying top coats!)
