Look how cute they are! I use craft scissors to cut the tops of my bags all fancy like and some cheap holiday colored ribbons.
These things are taking over my life (and kitchen table) >.<
Now on to the swatch of the day! One of my never tried before brands that I picked up at Ulta was Butter London. Until now I had only been able to drool over the many shades from afar. When I got there in person I had a reaaaaaally hard time choosing one color, but in the end it was No More Waity Katie that called out to me the loudest. She is a stunner!
- Seche Rebuild base coat / Seche Vite top coat
- Butter London No More Waity, Katie
NOTE: I really don't feel like my pictures do this polish justice, so go check out the review of this at The Polishaholic, you will not be disappointed by her gorgeous photos.
I bought this polish solely on the look in the bottle. It wasn't until I got home and read some reviews that I learned a lot of people had issues with the formula. I will admit, I was like oh crap what did I just do to myself. However, I was very happily surprised! I had pretty much none of the application or formula issues that I had read about, such as bald spots and streaking. This polish is very much on the sheer side and both pictures are with three coats, though I think I could get away with two thick ones if I had to. I am so in love with this gorgeous grayed out dusty purple and those bright purple sparkles are perfect! The glitter was nice and even, no fishing needed. The only real problem I had with this was (again) taking decent photos of it. It did get a little gritty with all the glitter and it is a bit top coat hungry, I would recommend whatever method you prefer for removing glitters with this one. I have seen it layered over Zoya Caitlin to get amazingly close to bottle color if you don't feel like using a full three coats. I will be planning to layer this over quite a few things in the spirit of experimentation. I think I am now a Butter London fan, now to hunt down Wallis somehow.
I hope you all have a great weekend, I will be elbow deep in hot chocolate mix and using my jedi mind powers to will my poor broken nails to grow.
