Today my brain politely offered me two options. One, I could spend the afternoon experimenting with my new Sunbeam Panini Press (and eating said food experiments)…or two, I could catch up on spring nail polish swatches.
But technically, the panini press isn’t new. I’ve had it since Christmas (of 2010!) and just kind of forgot about it.
Over the past few days, I’ve made a couple of grilled cheese sandwiches with it, a delicious grilled shrimp burrito (!) and a quesadilla with brie and pear.
But again, it’s not new, so I opted for the swatches…in part due to my muffin top, which has been feeling extra muffin-y lately…
I’ve also been going through a pastel nails phase, and the colors in the Butter London Spring 2013 Collection are scratching the itch.
This year, Butter London divided their spring launch into two parts — the six-piece Sweetie Shop collection and three-piece Starkers collection. Each bottle goes for $15 a pop.

I’m diggin’ the colors and eye-catching shine, but I’m having a little trubs with the brush…
It’s not a big deal, but I wish it had a sharper, crisper edge that could lay down the colors more evenly. The formula also feels a tad too thick for my liking, but c’est la vie, right?
What do you think? Do any of these shades catch your eye?
