Morning, guys and gals! I don't usually do this (in fact, this is a first for me) but New York Fashion Week always leaves me yearning to be a part of the excitement from my perch on the other side of the US.
Butter London, my favorite brand evarrr, always introduces a few new colors to commemorate each week, some of which make it into the core line, some that are limited edition. Colors of NYFWs past have included British Racing Green, Fishwife, and Posh Bird. This season's newbie is a full-coverage champagne glitter called The 444. Observe.
Gorgeous, right?! I love love LOVE champagne glitters and this one's different from any of the multitude I've amassed because it's chunky. It looks like a more wearable, versatile sister to West End Wonderland. I'm excited to own this.
So funny story... BL's facebook page first announced this with this tagline-- "Every girl needs a manicure that complements her favourite beverage (any guesses to what ours is?)" I immediately assumed The 444 is some sort of trendy new top-shelf liqueur mixed drink, so I googled The 444 drink to get the 411 (like that?) and I found that The 444 is a blended and tongue-in-cheek delight of seasonal fruits and vegetables, grains, legumes, and a wine or vinegar as a preservative. Mythbusters' Jamie Hyneman's recipe is here. I didn't really get it, but I figured the smoothie is probably some delectable shade of brown, and this is Butter London, after all, why wouldn't they name a perfectly lovely polish after a gag-inducing pseudo drink?
Well, as it turns out and as I found out via the press release, 444 is in reference to the address of BL's original headquarters and the drink of choice is champagne.
Enjoy your Sunday and thank you for reading!! ♥♥
