Firstly, you’ll be seduced by the Toffee Apple – a sort of rich, warm nude that smacks of sophistication. Or you might fall for the glossy Her Majesty’s Red – the most perfect crimson créme). Then there’s the luscious Afters – a dark blackberry, ideal for winter-time. Or maybe you’ll just opt for Shop Girl – the best everyday beige you’ll find.
Butter London’s The Gold Standard Gift Set (£25) could be the best Christmas present you can give a fellow beauty fiend, but I’m not sure you’ll be able to part with it… Especially when you see the 24-carat gold-flecked top coat which adds a touch of sparkle to all shades.
The five lacquers also dry with a patent finish, so they look glossy and professional. What’s more, it is such a timely gift – given our penchant for Royals at the moment – with it referencing a London, regal theme in the packaging. It’s the closest we’ll come to the Crown Jewels – but just as lovely (nearly).
