And for those who care to know I copied the "translation" of Giddy Kipper from Butter London's own website: "Giddy Kipper refers to someone who is every exited… like anyone who buys this lacquer will be!"

You see two coats of Giddy Kipper over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. Pigmentation was not super strong in the first coat and I found the formula on the thin side. But still, application was the usual Butter London pleasure and the second coat provided an insane saturated opacity. The shimmer certainly is more visible in the bottle and only very soft on the nail but I see it as enhancer of the glow of the blurple base color. Once more Giddy Kipper and I had some hard time to get pictures and the second picture is really accurate and as it shows IRL most of the time. Maybe due to the shimmer though and depending on the light the polish will look more blue as shown in my first picture.
Final thoughts: What an outstanding color and totally unique in my stash and I realize that I came to say this less and less. Once more Butter London outranks the big brands out there with totally unexpected colors for fall and going determinedly their own way. At this point I dare to forecast a huge hype for blurple over the next seasons having seen them popping up more frequently in the recent collections.
I ordered Butter London Giddy Kipper with Pshiiit Boutique.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
