NOTD: Butter London Artful Dodger

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 21 - 2011

No, my nails aren’t this long anymore – this was back in the day when I hadn’t abused them to within a millimetre of their poor, peeling lives.  Although looking at that length now, I think I’ve gone off it a bit… funny how our tastes change constantly isn’t it?

My tastes haven’t changed for Butter London’s beautiful Artful Dodger though.  When I was a little girl, I distinctly remember wanting to be the Artful Dodger… it’s not that I had a penchant for petty theft, I just thought it was a cool name.  Still do.

Artful Dodger is a super-pretty blue that feels a little different to my other squillion blues in my blue drawer.  Yes, I have a blue drawer.  What of it?  It manages to feel light, airy, a little frosty but somehow calming and mediterranean at the same time.  Plus, the beautiful BL cream formula is a dream to apply, something that of course, always helps.

Butter London Artful Dodger is priced at £11.95 and available to buy online at PowderRooms.

    Love it! I agree re nail length, I enjoy having them that long for about a day and then find that I can’t do much, ie type, change nappies, do daughters hair etc without possibly poking out someones eye!

  7. Paul says:

    Double wow – Wow to the colour – I think that colour is super, and wow to the nail length – They are loooooong. Absolutely lovely to look at, but surely they must have been a bit impractical? Can you do every day tasks without the fear of breaking one of them ?
    P. :0)

    I loooooove me some Butter London, I’m blissfully surprised I can actually find it way out in Western Australia – and at a reasonable price! I’m wearing Dosh now, and after seeing this I think I know what my next colour is going to be…
