It’s undeniable. Fashion racks this fall are filled with 1970s throwbacks. From turtlenecks to bell bottoms, the look is retro, retro, retro glam. According to Emma Hager at Man Repeller, “The Seventies have been vehemently revived on the runway. As a result, few collections do not present suede, shearling or warm, earthy tones.”
The smart folks at butter LONDON have embraced this trend wholeheartedly with a new nail lacquer collection – and an exciting new collaboration with Allure – that takes inspiration from the best of the 1970s, but gives it a twist that is pure 2015.
The vibrant, trendsetting shades come in a wide range of colors and finishes from sheer crème, to textured glitter, to metallic. My personal top picks from The Arm Candy Collection include:
NUDE STILETTOS This sheer, pinky-nude crème is the perfect neutral. I find that it’s a great shade when I am keeping my manicure shorter. The color lengthens the look of hands and is both elegant and simple.
STATEMENT PIECE A bold, red crème (pictured above), this shade truly makes a statement! A more orange-y tone than the reds of recent years, this works beautifully with the “autumn” themed hues which dominate this season. A wonderful look for a night on the town.
I’M ON THE LIST A not-quite-neutral (shown, at right), this is my personal favorite from the entire collection. I could wear this rose-gold metallic every day and never get bored. The shine and shimmer catch the light and subtly change the color… mesmerizing!
IT’S VINTAGE The ultimate nail lacquer for “that 70’s look.” The opaque rust crème looks right at home with any bohemian-inspired retro style.
DISCO NAP Inspired! This charcoal glitter encapsulates the glamour of Studio 54 and the disco era. A must-have for Saturday night.
LUST OR MUST? Perhaps the most sophisticated of all the shades, this opaque charcoal-brown crème (pictured, bleow) is simply stunning.
Not only are the nail lacquers in The Arm Candy Collection striking, butter LONDON uses only the safest ingredients in every product. The company offers some of the most beautiful, long-lasting colors on the market without including harmful formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP in any of its nail formulas! And, the nail lacquers contain Hydrolyzed Silk, Horsetail Extract, plus Vitamins B, C and E to promote strong, healthy nails.
Best of all, butter LONDON’s color-rich pigments provide one stroke coverage and a high-shine finish with chip-resistant wear. So, your mani-pedi will last longer and look better than ever before.
In fact, the butter LONDON name has been synonymous with exceptional nail lacquer since 2005. From W magazine, to Vogue, to Glamour UK, to Harper’s BAZAAR UK butter LONDON nail lacquers are the top choice among stylists, celebs, and nail artists all over the world.
