The one thing that kept me going through my spring cleaning action was the promise I gave to myself to tramp to my local nail polish watering hole once I am done. Imagine that extra twirl I gave to my dust cloth to get done sooner rather than later. The trip to my nail polish watering hole was disappointing though - no new things and whatever was there was left behind last time for the one or the other good reason. I splurged though on some new Nike Free's for my TRX lessons (my latest Fitness addiction). But no amount of joy of my feet could cover the somewhat let down feel on my nails. So back on to the road and tramping to my beauty watering hole which would be Globus. Since December they carry Butter London, though so far, I never got beyond admiring the beautifully arranged rack as they claim exorbitantly high prices for them - read two bottles of Butter London when ordered through Pshiiit Boutiqe. So imagine my excitement when I discovered two sets of five mini Butter London sets at 24 Swiss Francs which is quite a deal, considering a full bottle is more expensive.
Primrose Hill Picnic
And now it is playtime:
Two coats of Fruit Machine - the formula is fantastic, well nearly anything flows on easily over that Seche Ridge Filling Base Coat. It dries quick to the high shine visible in the photo below
One of the resolutions I made for 2014 way back in January was to subscribe to A Box Indied by Llarowe (what's not to love with this kind of resolutions - hehe). Dollish Polish Heart Braker came in the February box and is a clear based glitter containing matte and shiny glitter in white, pale pink, Barbie pink, vibrant fuchsia in any size from tiny bar snippets to fairly big and even some cutsie bows. I painted/dabbed one coat of Heart Braker over Fruit Machine.
I could not resist to venture into Skittelette territory: on my pinkie two coats of Primrose Hill Picnic, ring and middle I kept from the above mani and my index is a striped mix of two coats of Teddy Girl, one coat of Fruit Machine and one coat of Primrose Hill Picnic.
Final thoughts: I love the versatility of this set, once I started playing, more and more ideas started flooding from my manicure well. I think it is great that Butter London has those minis offered now at a totally reasonable price.
I bought this mini set with Globus in Basel.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for stopping by!!!
