Here I bring you my first ever butter London polishes! This holiday set was recently a special offer on Amazon for just under EUR 20, so I took the chance and ordered it! Let's see the colors, shall we?
The Black Knight
This is two coats - top picture without, bottom picture with top coat. I recommend at least two coats of top coat to make this halfway even on the surface. I don't really mind slightly gritty surfaces, though. I think this might be better over black. I wish the glitter would pop more, I feel it gets a bit lost.
On the ring finger, you see two coats by itself with top coat and on middle and pinky finger you can see it over Lacura Beauty "Cosmopolitan", which is a dark-ish red, also with top coat. I think Rosie Lee is best used layered, though it does get to a fairly reasonable opacity by itself.
This is one coat over black. As opposed to Rosie Lee, I feel Fairy Cake should only be used layered - I don't think this can be opaque on its own. It looks very dense over black, but I tried one coat on the bare nail when I first got the kit and it looked really patchy. I guess I didn't have enough polish on the brush, but still, I wouldn't use this on its own. I really love the name, it just seems to be so perfectly befitting and cute with all the rainbow sparkle holographic goodness.
What do you think of these? Do you own any butter London polishes? Which ones?
