It all started with a mint green nail polish.
I’d been on the hunt for the perfect mint chocolate chip shade; a couple summers ago I thought I’d found that holy grail in a Toronto salon, but alas it was a discontinued hue. Then, last month I was perusing the counters at Harvey Nicks when my eagle eye spied amidst the ubiquitous silvers, black cherry reds and Barbie pink polishes adorning the shelves…Butter London’s ‘fiver’. A uniquely creamy shade of minty perfection.
And so the love affair with the pretty pastel grew; once my tootsies were polished a perfect peppermint and before the paint was dry I was already sending out search parties for a pair of minty fresh skinny jeans, some wear-to-death ballerina slippers and a summery frock for garden parties and race days.
