Butter London All Hail McQueen Nail Polish Fall 2010







The most exciting color on the current nail polish scene is...

beige.

But it's more than just beige, really. All Hail McQueen is part of Butter London fall 2010 collection and is a tribute to the late Alexander McQueen. I love how instead of going with some fad color that would be utterly unwearable in a couple of seasons, Butter London chose the most classic color, made it as pretty as possible and added an incredibly beautiful multicolored micro glitter. It's just glam enough to get noticed but so wearable you will get addicted in no time (speaking from experience here).

Application is smooth and easy, two coats get you the perfect finish and it dries quickly. My only complaint is that it's a typical glitter polish as far as removal goes: It takes a lot of work to get rid of it completely, which gives one another reason to reapply All Hail McQueen again and again.

Bottom Line: I need a backup bottle.

All Hail McQueen ($14) and the rest of the collection are available from butterlondon.com

  1. This is indeed gorgeous, especially for a nude, which can sometimes be really boring. I just got this in the mail today, but Chanel has me slightly more excited at the moment. Will definitely be getting a lot of use out of this one. Lovely photos - I find them really accurate!

  2. It's looks so nice, this is has been sat in my Zuneta basket waiting for me to go ahead and purchase. I must get on and do as it as I can't wait to try it out!

  3. This is my new "favorite color ever" color, and great swatching as it's dead-on. I also layer this over BL's Yummy Mummy, also a sophisticated beige.
    BTW, this line is now at ULTA.

  4. I totally understand the need for people to honor the memory of Alexander McQueen. (And Isabella Blow, a close McQueen friend.) But it concerns me that we somehow "romanticize", for lack of a better word, their suicides by marketing products around their demise. Would Alexander have committed suicide if Izzy hadn't? We'll never know...but we do know that suicides spawn other suicides amongst close friends. Just a thought...
