NAILS—The Olympics are in London this year, but that's not the only big thing happening in Britain. It's Queen Elizabeth's diamond jubilee, marking her 60 years on the throne. In her honor, Butter London has created one of their characteristically tongue-in-cheek colors: a silver sparkler called Lillibet's Jubilee. Considering that they already have a No More Waity Katie hue, how long will it take before there are enough royal polishes for a whole hand? [@evachen212]

EYES—If you love Urban Decay's insane eye shadows but don't want to invest in a whole rainbow without trying the colors first, you are about to be in luck. In May, they're launching a build-your-own-palette where you can ... well, build your own palette. The palette comes with a nude shadow (called Walk of Shame, natch), a brush, and a big mirror and you can add, mix, and match accordingly. Finally, you can pair your Walk of Shame with Freelove, Bender, and Midnight Cowboy. [Beaut.ie]
