My First Butter Londons


I finally put on one of those Butter Londons I got some time back. Actually, I've put on two of them - Giddy Kipper and Petrol. And for once, I took pictures of Giddy Kipper alone before Petrol went on top.

I also used one coat of the Butter London Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat on top of one coat of Orly Bonder then used a coat of Butter London Hardware P.D. Quick Topcoat.

Giddy Kipper is a blue purple  with a nice shimmer. I see multiple colors in there but silver seems to be the most prominent one.

This is three coats. It took that many to get even coverage. As you can see, the shimmer is quite strong. Giddy Kipper is beautiful alone but you know me. I can't leave well enough alone. And this time, I'm very glad I went the next step.

I decided to add a coat of Petrol and what a difference.

Just a single coat brought out this intense blue shimmer and deepened the blue of the base color. My only regret here is that I didn't use Out The Door for my topcoat. While the Butter London did dry quickly to the touch, it did not dig down through each layer of polish to dry each coat. Even as I write this an hour after application, my nails will dent pretty easily. I'll be applying a coat of Out The Door when I'm done.

Not exactly an Easter manicure. I didn't get a chance to do one of those. I do love this look, though. 

Hope those who celebrate the holiday had a good time with family and friends. Thanks for reading and stay tuned.
