While the rest of London embarked on its quest for gold with the opening of the Olympics, cult nail brand Butter London have taken it upon themselves to remind us all that silver and bronze are just as fabulous with their commemorative Olympic Heavy Medal Collection.
This limited edition set contains three metallic nail colours so you can join in the London 2012 spirit while nailing this season’s metallic beauty trend.
The trio come in a very patriotic Union Jack box, but it’s the charming London-inspired shade names that we really fell for. Introducing The Full Monty, Diamond Geezer and (our favourite) The Old Bill.
The collection is available for £30 at Harvey Nichols nationwide or on www.butterlondon.com
And in other Olympic nail art news (there’s a sentence I never imagined writing) Sophy Robson, nail artist to the stars who partnered with beauty brand P&G to provide nail services for London 2012, unveiled some of her designs last week.
Sophy created some 214 flag inspired nail designs to be painted on athletes and visitors at this year’s games and said of her creations: “Seeing them come to life on the Athlete and visitors at the Olympic Village makes me too proud for words.”
