that time of year again! We’re busy at New York Fashion Week with
Global Colour Ambassador Katie Jane Hughes creating bespoke nail looks
for the Spring Summer 2014 collections of our brilliant designer
friends. This season, we’re working with the likes of Karen Walker,
DANNIJO, Nicole Miller, Band of Outsiders, Monique Lhuillier, Lela Rose,
and Libertine (just to name a few!)

This limited-edition trio includes our three most three lacquers: The iconic ‘No More Waity Katie, ‘Lillibet’s Jubilee’ - just released from the butter LONDON vault, and the newest edition to the royal family, Pitter Patter. Help celebrate this historical moment with three iconic lacquers in the rich, luxe formulas butter LONDON is known for.
The color purple has been associated with royalty, power and wealth for centuries. In fact, Queen Elizabeth I forbade anyone except close members of the royal family to wear it. Purple’s elite status stems from the rarity and cost of the dye originally used to produce it. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, aubergine/purple is believed to be the ideal color. Hence No More Waity Katie, and Lillibet’s Jubilee.
Pitter Patter: Opaque aubergine shimmer.
No More Waity, Katie: Semi-sheer, greige lilac jelly glitter.
Lillibet’s Jubilee: Opaque, silver lavender foil metallic.
Available for $39 for a limited amount of time.

Global Colour Ambassador Katie Hughes took New York Fashion Week by storm this season, creating some of our most note-worthy creations to date! From the bejeweled "gem party" manicure at Libertine, to the "gunmetal grunge"manicure seen backstage at ICB by Prabal Gurung, this season was all about the clash of texture and small embellishments.
New York Fashion Week may have wrapped up, but Katie is on to her next destination - her hometown of London! Join us as we set out to create even more stunning looks in the week to come.

What do you do for a living?I recently graduated from UW-Stout where I studied hospitality and business. I currently work at a fantastic women’s boutique in Egg Harbor, WI, called Patricia Shoppe. ( https://www.facebook.com/PatriciaShoppe ) .

What do you love about butter LONDON?The drying time is great, and the polish really holds up to wear and tear. I just washed a lot of dishes, and I don’t have a single chip!
What’s your favourite butter LONDON colour?For every day wear, I love Yummy Mummy. It is a great neutral that matches everything. Tramp Stamp is another favorite that is my go-to for a night out!

What magazines do you read, if any?Bon Appetit always inspires me to whip up new dishes. I also read Harper’s Bazaar because of their beautiful fashion spreads!
Who is your favourite actress/actor?I love watching any movie with Meryl Streep because you know she will do a great job taking on any role. I also enjoy Audrey Tatou and, like any other woman, I love George Clooney.
Who are your fashion icons?Audrey Hepburn is a classic icon. Anything she was wearing in 50s and 60s, you could easily wear today! I see Kate Middleton as being a modern day Audrey, as her outfits are always simple, classic and well tailored.

I also love to see my boyfriend, Bryan, watch classic movies with my friend, Katie, and make cupcakes with my friend, Danielle.
