Butter London – No More Waity Katie NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 5 - 2011

I’m spending the day in Windsor today (official home to the Queen) so I thought that Butter London’s No More Waity Katie would be a very fitting shade for my nails!

A dirty mauve packed with lavender glitter… looks absolutely nothing like it’s promo picture!

The mauve base is awfully sheer… and this polish doesn’t make for a pretty sheer.  In my opinion it ‘needs’ building up and for me, that meant 3 coats on most fingers and an extra one on two of them that still appeared patchy.

The glitter is well… it’s just glitter.  Yes, it’s a nice colour combo and you know I love my dirgy shades but I think I was hoping for something more spectacular… imagine a dirgy version of All Hail McQueen with it’s super fine glitter… yeah, that.

The finish is rough and will need more than one application of top coat to remove the grittiness.  It’s a more understated glitter than most and one that I’d even go so far as to class work appropriate!

Overall, it’s not as regal as I’d hoped… but regardless, it’s already a sell out!

And if you want to get your hands on this limited edition shade, Powder Rooms still has stock!

    You know, I thought I was going to love this. But hearing that it can come off as gritty (and I hate that), I’m glad I didn’t get it when I had the chance. The colour is nice though, but as you said nothing like the promo pic. x

    Oh my gosh! You’re soo right, it doesn’t look anything like the promo pic!! I still like the color though, which I guess is good because I ordered mine already, haha. Thanks for the picture!

  5. Vijaya says:

    ZOMG, this is SOOO pretty. I love it! <3

  6. Rae says:

    Whoot! Alright, so it’s not too much like its promo photo… but I love it even more because of that! : o )

  7. Shortiee31 says:

    Ahh such a shame.. Much prefer the promo pic colours! x

  8. You’re so right, it looks nothing like the promo pics. It looks better, though. Not spectacular nor particularly Katie-like, but it’s still very pretty. 🙂

    Question:
    What do you use to remove this polish? …. I had a difficult time.

  10. Silva says:

    I love the color! But a pity the application’s not so good.

  11. Lynnie says:

    It’s pretty enough in its own right but I don’t *love* it. Just as well considering how hard it’s probably going to be to get a bottle!

  12. Oceane says:

    This looks like a bitch to remove..

  13. Phoebs says:

    oh no! I was so excited about this special colour, but I don’t think I’ll bother now. Me and multiple coats of nail polish just don’t get along, and I wish it was more special! I’m very sad now :'( xxx

    Urgh, takes too much maintenance work to get a good finish so will definitely be giving this a miss. 3 coats of colour and 2 of top coat? Nightmare scenario for me.

    Colour looks really pretty – the purple is definitely a modern take on the regal purple from the past, but the silver glitter seems…tacky to me, if you apply it in the royal context. Perhaps smaller shimmer partciples would have been more appropriate.

    mmm… really not sure about this one. I managed to find a bottle in Wholefoods Kensington. It’s difficult to apply, doesn’t last at all and it’s a real pain to remove. It would work better as a top coat. Maybe over Chanel Paradoxal or a lilac base.

    From the promo pictures I also expected this polish to be on par with all hail mcqueen and am happy I didn’t pre-order it because I also absolutely HATE gritty polish! They’re such a pain to remove.
