Butter London Lippy and Nail Polish in Toff on my lips and nails
Looks like matchy-matchy is in this fall. Quite a few lines have been releasing matching lip and nail products lately, like MAC, Sonia Kashuk and Butter London for fall 2012 (shown below), and can I just say? — I love this trend!
It reminds me of the sirens of the silver screen — so classic, elegant and pulled together — and with so many colors out there to choose from, it’s one of those rare trends in which everyone can find something to wear.
As some food for thought, here are three combinations featuring Butter London’s new Lippy Butter ($17 each) and 3-Free Lacquer ($14 each) shades, available online now at butterlondon.com.

If you prefer more neutral/natural-looking colors, you could try a creamy rose like Toff.
Butter London Toff…I use hands a lot when I talk, so I think it’s kinda cool to have nails that play off the the color on my lips!
But if you want more drama-for-your-mama, then how about something vampy, like dark wine La Moss?

Or peppy, like cranberry pink Queen Vic?

One nice side effect of this trend, and I swear to you it’s not just because I’m lazy (although that definitely plays into the equation), is that it takes some of the guesswork out of choosing coordinating nail and lip colors. No need to worry about it when the shades are the same.
Please pass the coffee
Zzzz… I’m a bit of a sleepy sheepy this morning. It was so hot in the house last night that I had a hard time sleeping. Even with the windows open and a fan pointing at the bed, it was still stuffy and sticky.
Oh, and then there was the grasshopper that somehow got in the house and taunted Tabs all night long. Yup, nothin’ like a 20-pound tabby tearing up and down the stairs at 3 in the morning.
I think I’m due for another cup of coffee. Want one? It’s a mellow Kona blend, like the easy listening of coffees, LOL!
