What’s one event that happens every four years, takes months if not years to prepare for, and separates the winners from the losers? While “Election Day” does work, the answer I’m looking for is the Olympics! Admittedly, I’m not the least bit athletic (does yoga count?), but I’ve always absolutely loved the pomp and circumstance of the Summer Olympics. The Opening Ceremony, my favorite part, is such a joyous occasion around the world and with the July 27 date just weeks away, the excitement for this year’s London 2012 Olympic Games is steadily growing. So what does this mean for a beauty lover? Olympic-themed limited-edition collections, of course!
In celebratory fashion, butter LONDON has appropriately created a commemorative nail lacquer collection in honor of the London Olympics. The limited-edition Olympic Heavy Medal Trio ($36) features gold, silver, and bronze metallic shades.
- The Full Monty – Does what it says on the bottle. Full-on molten gold. A beautiful colour that is always classy, never brassy.
- Diamond Geezer – Proper platinum, silvery and shiny. It’s finger-bling that sparkles like the real thing, but doesn’t cost it!
- The Old Bill – Burnished bronze with a beautiful antique patina. For sophisticated metal heads.
Availability: Ulta, Nordstrom, Macy’s
