Radiant Orchid

A few days ago my boyfriend brought home an orchid for me. He’s one of those rare guys who always manages to choose the perfect gift. However, in the 8 years we’ve been together I’ve somehow managed to innocently ruin nearly every surprise. So we both count it as a blessing when I manage to not foil his efforts by treating myself to the earrings he has stashed away for my birthday or swearing off carbs the night before a romantic Italian dinner that he’s had planned for weeks.


The purple pattern on my “just because” orchid reminded me of Pantone’s 2014 colour of the year, Radiant Orchid.

I decided to try my own Radiant Orchid inspired manicure using the colour Toff by Butter London. Butter London polishes are Formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP free.
