Butter London

I tend to get stuck in a rut when it comes to nail polish. I might experiment with a new shade or two, but I always come back to the same three choices: OPI Mother Road Rose, Essie Ballet Slippers and a red from Chanel.

Mauve. Pink. Red. I'm. Every. Woman.

Actually, I'm not in much of a rut lately, since I stopped wearing nail polish altogether. Too many visits to Whole Foods finally convinced me that what you put on your body can have as much of an impact as what you put in your body. ( I gave this a lot of thought as I was eating my chocolate-covered Goji berries. ) And since most nail polish is made with formaldehyde (that's right, embalming fluid) and a ton of other toxins, it didn't seem worth it.

Sure, there are a couple of formaldehyde-free lines out there, but none of them did it for me.

Until now.

Butter London is non-toxic nail care with a British accent. It's simply brilliant. Their "3 Free Lacquers" are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP---nasty stuff. The lacquers are heavily pigmented, so the colors are deeper, richer and more vibrant.

And what colors! The butter London palette is the perfect combination of chic and cheek.

Bezzie Mate, $12. "This colour will remind you of a night in with the girls, gossiping, giggling and enjoying an intense burst of fuschia pink."

Diamond Geezer, $12. "Proper platinum, silvery and shiny. It's finger-bling that sparkles like the real thing, but doesn't cost it!"

I'm officially obsessed.

Seems a shame they don't have Chocolate Covered Goji Berry Binge, though.
