This Little Gems set, £15, by Butter London really is the best little gem you’ll find as a stocking filler this Christmas. The six nail lacquers all have festive gilded finishes – in champagne-metal hues – so they are the perfect gift for Chrimbo.
The six-strong set contain those kind of colours that are eminently wearable – from chic nudes to sultry metallics and are bang on trend. Wear Smart (a light, peachy creme), or Say Yes (rose-nude creme) for day-time and to add a sophisticated finish to any outfit. Adventure Awaits (champagne sparkle with micro glitter) will take you seamlessly from day to night. While Fill Steam Ahead (grey creme) is a colour that will simply go with everything. For nights on the town, it doesn’t get better than a slither of Diamond Geezer (metallic silver) and, my favourite, Regalia (rose gold shimmer) gives a timeless sheen to nails and makes for the ultimate finishing touch.
Forget the obvious scarlets or wine colours, these gorgeously iridescent polishes give the perfect festive manicure. Each shade offers a highly pigmented, long-wearing nail polish that’s easy to apply and Butter London is known for its addition of nourishing vitamins to its formulas for healthier, stronger nails.
The set is part of the limited edition ‘Radically Royal’ range, which celebrates British heritage and regal glamour. They are the ideal jewel in the crown.
