For shoe-addicts everywhere, this is the best time of summer - the shoe sales! I'm especially excited about the Kurt Geiger sale which started this weekend. It was so tricky to choose between Marc Jacobs or Chloe but I was really looking for some gladiator sandals that would go with my new Butter London polish.
I found a KG purple and silver pair that provide a great contrast to the putty-coloured FashPack polish (£10). Butter London is one of my all-time favourite brands - the colours are spot-on for this season and there are no carcinogens, like formaldehyde, toluene or DBP in their formulas.
Originally I thought that a mushroom shade on the toes would look odd and more than a little unflattering, but it actually looks, well, just very cool. It also means you can paint your fingernails bright red or pale pink without that old-fashioned, matchy matchy look.
I also like the idea of choosing your footwear after you've picked your polish — how decadent.
