NOTD: Butter London – Frilly Knickers

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 2 - 2011

Love the name of this cheeky little number!  Butter London’s Frilly Knickers is a definite contender for a super-cool Christmas polish.  It’s a low maintenance sparkler with more bling than your Christmas lights.

Please excuse my yellow nails (yuk).  Over bare nails, it doesn’t look that incredible, although it’s still a pretty touch for those that prefer a sheer sparkle.  However…

Layer a single coat over a black or dark base and you’re cooking on turbo-powered gas!  A multi-hued, multi-faceted gem of a polish that magically saves shitty manicures with a single stroke.

I heart my Frilly Knickers.

Butter London Frilly Knickers is priced at £11.95 and available online from Powder Rooms.

    OMG it looks stunning over black! <3

    Oh LOVING this over the dark nails. Not sure I’d fork out the guts of £12 though. Glitter polishes look great but I always regret putting them on.

  3. The first picture looks great too…I would have never guessed the orange part was due to yellow nails…I thought you were going for that gradation look….!

  4. Robyn says:

    Oooh, very unassuming on its own but over the black.. zing!

  5. Leah says:

    Ooee, loving it over the black. Beautiful.

  6. gio says:

    Wow! It looks gorgeous over dark shades!

  7. Victoria says:

    Love the name and how it totally transforms a relatively ordinary looking polish into something special!

  8. I love this, it may well be the answer to my holographic needs!

    And if you’re after something to shift the yellow staining on your nails, try brushing your nails with Eucryl tooth powder and an old stiff toothbrush! Works a treat.
