Need This NOW – butter LONDON Marrow

For two seasons in a ROW I’ve missed the Vena Cava show and it’s killing me! Each season butter LONDON’s Nonie Creme works with the designers behind Vena Cava, Sophie Buhai and Lisa Mayock, to create a custom nail color for their show and they have all been stunning.

Last February it was the knock-out British Racing Green that launched last Fall.  This past September I was at a blogging conference when Nonie mixed Artful Dodger and Royal Navy to create a stunning cobalt blue.  And now there’s this…


Nonie, you’re killing me!!  When I saw Nonie backstage at the Betsey Johnson show, I had to ask about the shade all my beauty blogging pals had been tweeting about.  Marrow was given its name by the designers and it’s a deep purple with this slightly dusty  look to it.  Though it’s the flecks of glitter that really made my eyes pop.  Though Nonie told me that the mix used for the show had more glitter than what we’ll see when Marrow hits shelves.


Are you dying over this color or what?  That’s what I get for flying in a day late.  You better believe that won’t happen again.

    Wow, that color looks so pretty; I am such a sucker for purples!

    wow i really like it!!! i hope the glitter is visible on the nail, not just in the bottle (like zoya indigo…which is just in the bottle and not on the nail)

    love it!!! want, now!!!
    how do i get the square cap off of the butter london polishes? i think they apply like crap but it could be my yucky technique since i can’t keep my fingers on the rectangular cap.

      On the older bottles, getting the cap off can be a bit of a struggle but if you pull hard enough it will come off. I found the turning the cap so that it forms a plus sign (when looking down) makes it easier to grip and pull the cap off. The new bottle caps are a breeze to remove. They slide right off.

    I love a good purple and the glitter makes this one special. Can’t wait to finally try Butter London with this one (and maybe British Racing Green).

    Great color!

    You are lucky to attend to these fashion shows. How do you organise with your job? Do you take some days off or is it your job to assist to these shows? Are you journalist? :)

    Tiffany – just pull it up! Mine come off pretty easily.

    Why would they reduce the glitter! I only went OMG because of the gold glitter hope it’s visible on the nail.

    (Luckily I have a butter london stockist down the road from me so I can go and take a look!)
