Upcoming Fall/Winter 2011 Collections
It always seems a bit difficult to think of fall/winter trends in the middle of summer when it's really heating up outside, but as the nail polish collections for the next season become available, it's always nice to have a head's-up.
So, here is what's next for some of the higher-end nail polish lines:
Butter London (aka butter LONDON) has a new line of shades coming up for fall/winter 2011/2012 that includes this beauty (pictured above). "Wallis" is a beautiful dark gold shade. When I first saw it, I couldn't help but think that butter LONDON had given us the best parts of the two favorite shades from the Fall Chanel line.
Peridot (left) and Graphite (right) are both beautiful colors in their own right, but at $25US a bottle, they are a bit harder to come by for some that would like to have that look.
Instead of choosing one over the other, why not have both shades in one?! And at $14 a bottle (this is typical pricing if you buy butter LONDON at suppliers like Nordstrom or Ulta, and on Nordstrom's website, Wallis is labeled as a Nordstrom Exclusive), you'll have enough money left over to buy another shade from the butter LONDON Fall Collection!
Seen in the photo below is the full lineup for Fall/Winter 2011. (From left to right: No More Waity, Katie; Bluey; Toff; Wallis; and Knees Up). To seem some amazing swatches of this collection, I recommend visiting Lipglossiping's blog HERE. Her swatches of the shades are divine, and you can get a better sense of how the colors look in real life.
Now onto the next collection! By now you've probably seen these promo shots for Deborah Lippmann's Fall/Winter collections, but I've broken them down by the release dates that are currently circulating online for each collection.
Pictured above, top row (left to right) is Single Ladies and Stormy Weather. Bottom row (left to right) is Billionaire and Brick House. These polishes (along with the Get This Party Started set) are supposed to start being available at the beginning of August.
In the photo above, from left to right: Good Girl Gone Bad and Glamarous Life (online the spelling is with that extra second "a" rather than an "o"). These are set to release at the beginning of September.
Deborah Lippmann Glitters! What could be better? Top row (left to right): Stairway to Heaven and I Love the Nightlife. Bottom row (left to right): Do Ya Think I'm Sexy and Shake Your Groove Thing. These are set to release at the beginning of October.
Now do you remember the fabulous red nail color from Rodarte's collection that everyone was hyped-up about? The working name for that polish was Jessica Rabbit, but it appears that the name has been changed to Do Ya Think I'm Sexy.
The above photographed nail polishes were used for Rodarte's Collection. The top bottle is No More Drama, and the bottom is Jessica Rabbit (which appears to be the same nail color as the promo pic for Do Ya Think I'm Sexy).
Finally, if you're a reader of Mary's great blog Body and Soul, she posted the other day about an article in Allure magazine online that discussed the future trend of "slutty polish names." Illamasqua is coming out with four new shades for the fall that made it into the Allure article. Kink (shown in the photo above), Taint (brown), Vice (pinkish-red), and Faux Pas (blue/purple) make up the nail polishes for their Fall Collection.
