There is something slightly gratifying about escaping to Summer beauty launches in this miserable, soul-destroying weather. Indulging in a pedicure is like wearing Agent Provocateur underwear when you know full well that no one is going to see it, it fills you with a kind of smug joy over your little secret.

And last week after being abandoned by several tubes and then utterly soaked in the pouring rain, I was lucky enough to be treated to a dreamy ButterLONDON pedicure. Developed out of necessity backstage at Fashion Week, their new Pedicure Collection is designed to be used without water and as they put it,’ take your footcare from ‘ewww’ to ‘ooohh’’.

A particular shout out has to go to their Rock Off Callus Peel £25, which vertially melts away the hard skin so commonly found in our fickle weather. It is undoubtedly very different to the medical alternatives you might find in the chemist and works brilliantly with their Stilletto Stick Hydrating Heel Balm, £25.

The star of the show however, was their new limited edition colour in aid of the Jubilee-Lillibet, £12.

As displayed on my lovely toes below, it is a beautiful silvery, lavender metallic infused with holographic glitter- quite unlike anything I had seen before.Best of all – practically a week on and not a chip in sight. Now, that’s something to celebrate about!
