Review: Butter London Wallis with Mermaid Accent Nail

I am lucky indeed to have IRL friends that are also Lacqueristas.  Sure, it helps I met them at Reddit meetups but it totes counts.  One of my new favourite things to do is going to raid their polish collection as it can often yield excellent results.  So excellent, in fact, as I finally got to try a Butter London polish and even one I've been lusting after: Wallis, the beautiful metallic olive.  

Looking at these photos, I really wish I'd added that third coat I was going to.  I can see it's just a little thin in places but that doesn't stop Wallis from being awesome.  It's such a unique shade of sparkly olive, I just don't have anything else like it in my collection.  Application was good as well, although three coats is advisable.  As I had a bit of time on my hands, I thought I'd try out a mermaid accent nail that I saw floating around Pinterest a while ago, a coloured gradient using a bunch of Sinful Color polishes.  I love how it came out.  I'm not sure of the names but there was a gold sparkly polish I started at the cuticle level.  I then added a green glitter 2/3rds of the way down my nail, finishing off the tip with a blue.  It really does look like a looking at a mermaid without your glasses on, which is always a plus.







The Verdict:  I have to find these Sinful Colors for myself and play with them more, they came out awesome.  Wallis is beautiful too.  Yay sparklies!

The Polish:

  • Butter London Wallis from the Autumn 2011 Collection, Butter London
  • Sinful Colors in Call You Later, Nail Junkie and Hottie, various locations

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
