Review: Butter London Scuppered

My first encounter with Butter London with Knackered wasn't the greatest.  Application was incredibly difficult and just didn't look right.  I thought it deserved another chance though, mostly because Scuppered looks so amazing in the bottle.  I don't think "bespoke" nail polish is actually a think, even though it claims to be, but whatever, pretty polish.  Man, I'm all over the shop today with this intro but can't be bothered rewriting it.

Scuppered is a beautiful bronze sparkly foil polish with green glitter and pink sparkles.  I certainly don't have anything else like this in my collection.  Application was good - you could get away with two coats but I prefer three.  Because I can't just do a normal mani, I added a fancy french with Nicole by OPI Razzle Dazzle.  Perfect name for a black!  Anyway, this isn't too hard to do, just cut a triangle out of a piece of tape, stick it on your palm first then make sure it's stuck down evenly on your nail.  If there are bubbly bits, you'll get seepage (that was not a good word to use) like on my middle finger.  If you're impatient like me, add a coat of Seche Vite before you tape to make it dry faster.  







The Verdict:  I really like Scuppered and am now fully on board with Butter London. I'm still bitter about Knackered but I'll get over it, one day.  Apologies for the weird colouring here, I messed up my white balance.  The polish colour is accurate, just not my fingers.

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
