Brits are really good at coming up with snarky nicknames. “Waity Katie” was the moniker bestowed on Kate Middleton by the British press because this royal proposal was eight years in the making.
While everything from condoms to dish towels have been made to commemorate the royal nuptials, none are as fun as a good nail polish. Butter London has just released a nail lacquer in Kate’s honor, called “No More Waity, Katie.” It’s a greige base sprinkled liberally with lilac glitter. While we’re not sure that Kate herself will be rocking this glittery confection, it’s a really fun and spring-y color, well-suited to a pedicure.
In addition to courting future royalty, Butter--whose nail lacquer formulas are all formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP free--has had quite a presence on catwalks lately, having done custom nails for the girls at Vena Cava, Alexander Wang, Calvin Klein, Betsey Johnson, Yigal Azrouel, and Christian Cota.
In London, Butter’s “Tea With The Queen” graced the nails of the models at the hottest-ticket-at-LFW, the Issa show. It’s a demure yet sophisticated peachy-nude. So if you’re not particularly glittery--like the future princess Kate--maybe this one would be more to your liking.
