butter LONDON Lucy in the Sky nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonPhew, we’re making it closer to the end of the week! Yay 🙂 I dunno about you, but Thursdays always strike me as a “happy” day. Today I have butter LONDON Lucy in the Sky to show you!

Lucy in the Sky is a neutral base jelly polish with iridescent glitters.

This is 3 thin coats plus top coat. Formula was good – a little hard to maneuver on the nail because of the chunkiness of the glitters.

What’s strange is that for once, I prefer how a sparkly glitter polish looks inside instead of outside! For some reason, when the sun shone on this polish, the base overwhelmed the sparkle somehow! Oh well, for $4 from TJMaxx, you can’t complain too much. 😉

What was your last bargain buy you picked up?

Sugar Spun Plums is a glitter bomb polish with purple glitter, purple to gold flakes, and holographic sparkle. Plus a lotta other good stuff. This is a cousin to Polish ‘M Autumn’s Palette [previously swatched].

I then used cyclone vinyls and butter LONDON Bramble to create a trippy kind of look.

Seriously, don’t stare too long at this, it’s a little freaky. LOL. Unfortunately, Sugar Spun Plums is no longer available on PolishM.com, but keep an eye out for it. I picked up Bramble at TJMaxx for $4.

BTW, are you on snapchat? I joined last week and I’m already having a ton of fun there. If you’re on, add me! My username is bhappybuypolish. 🙂

China Glaze S’more Fun + butter LONDON Frilly Knickers

Purchased by Me buttonHello there, and thankfully (seriously) it’s Thursday. I had an awful day yesterday so I’m so glad it’s a new day. That being said, I have a pretty-ugly color on the blog today: China Glaze S’more Fun that I’ve paired with butter LONDON Frilly Knickers.

S’more Fun is an odd sort of green-yellow color. I’m not quite sure where the “s’more” part comes in, because if you ate s’mores this color, you’d not be having a fun time. I used 1 thin coat and 1 thick coat (and no top coat) here; formula was thin and runny. :/

I had butter LONDON Frilly Knickers sitting on my table, so I thought, “why not?” I don’t think S’more Fun was really helped by Frilly Knickers, but it wasn’t hurt!

This is 1 nice coat over S’more Fun with 1 coat of top coat. This is a really nice top coat from butter LONDON.

Well, I’m hopeful today is better than yesterday – how has your week been? Oh – btw, I’m now on snapchat, so please add me – my username is bhappybuypolish. 🙂

Purchased by Me buttonHappy Sunday to you! A quick post this morning with butter LONDON Bobby Dazzler and the Beauty Blog Coalition weekly roundup of beauty links.

Bobby Dazzler is an antique silver-gold chrome nail polish. This is 2 thin coats and no top coat. Like most chrome polishes, this is brush-strokey but otherwise the formula was good. Just make sure to let each coat dry before applying the next.

Now onto the BBC weekly links:

 

butter LONDON Two-Fingered Salute

Good morning lovely readers! How is your week going? I have to admit, it’s been a rough one around this household – not enough sleep and too short of tempers equals a pretty grumpy family. But, I have a gorgeous polish to show you, so let’s get to it!

butter LONDON Two-Fingered Salute was a purchase I made a few months back from TJ Maxx – it was $3.99, I believe! Talk about a nice score. 🙂

Purchased by Me buttonHey hello Wednesday! Time for another edition of Re-Swatch Wednesday. Today we’re going to re-visit an old combo: Orly Boho Bonnet with butter LONDON Tart with a Heart (only click if you want to see embarrassing pictures of when I first started the blog!).

Orly Boho Bonnet | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Orly Boho Bonnet is a very pretty blue-grey creme nail polish. It is slightly lighter in color than my photo shows. This is 3 coats with no top coat!

I’ve added a shade photo only to show you the complexity of this polish topper.

When is the last time you pulled out an old favorite? I’d love to hear about it!

Big Smoke is a navy blue based polish that truly does look like it has a dash of Liquid Smoke inside of it. A very unique polish to my collection!
