NOTD: Butter London Hoorah Henri

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 20 - 2012

I’m going all demure and sophistimicated with today’s nails courtesy of Butter London…

Hoorah Henri is a pale, creamy nude that would make a beautiful French mani with clean, white tips.  The above photo shows three coats because I wanted to see how it built up – not too badly as it happens because three coats were just about enough to disguise the ‘orrible stains on my nails.  The formula was good and drying time perfectly adequate.  What do you think, too pale?  I don’t actually own anything quite like this and it may well inspire me to attempt a Frenchie before the month is out.

Butter London Hoorah Henri is priced at £11.95 and available online from PowderRooms

    Absolutely love it.
    Going to have to go and get this one (and then no doubt botch a few frenchies!)

  2. Nina says:

    Lovely, clean look.

  3. I’d wear as an everyday polish, but I’m going to get Disco Biscuit (!!!!).

  4. Jenni says:

    I hate to say it but I shall anyway.
    Not worth so much as a fiver. I’ve got a million like this and … well, they’re ten a penny. And that includes good quality ones….

    It’s good for conservative work environments.

    Not a fan of pales, the sparklier the better for me! Currently sporting Catch Me In Your Net by OPI and can’t stop looking at it!

  7. Cotton Candy says:

    Love it, such a gorgeous shade!!! <3

  8. Roxanne says:

    This is such a lovely colour! I like it. 😉


  9. Grace London says:

    I like this type of shade, but I think your skintone needs a pinker or cooler beige. This one is a touch too yellow.

    From the photo I think it really enhances the natural look of your nails but gives a high gloss finish. Would be good to use when your out of inspiration or just for a clean look. Love it anyway :)

    A lovely everyday polish I could see myself wearing to work next week!

    Now that is how you do nude nails. LOVE!
