Butter London Knackered NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 28 - 2012

Shapeshifting.  Good or bad?  Would you like to be able to transform yourself from one thing to the next in the blink of an eye?  I remember watching An American Werewolf in London (from behind the sofa) when I was about 8 or 9, that bit where David turns from hairy man into even hairier beast?  Horrifying.  It still gives me the heebies to think of it now.

Butter London’s Knackered is an altogether prettier shapeshifter.  It morphs from green to purple in the most delightful of ways, proving itself to be a very worthy duochrome.  As if that weren’t enough loveliness to contend with, the shade is flecked with holographic micro-glitter.  In fact, it’s almost too much prettiness to contend with, basically the kind of polish I’d create if I ever had me a chance: “Oh, let’s just put EVERYTHING in it!”

Butter London Knackered is priced at £11.95 and available online from PowderRooms.com

    ‘Oh, let’s just put EVERYTHING in it!” <— haha xx
    this reminds me of 'not like the movies' from opi but a disco remix of that xx

    Just clicked onto this after having painted my nails in, what I thought was, the most glorious colour (ORLY’s Veriinkle – In case you were wondering) and now it feels rubbish in comparison to that beauty. Thanks a lot!

    Moving on from that sad moment, that colour is absolutely perfect. I love wearing dark nails in the summer but it’s usually hard to get away with – that colour looks like a perfect dark summer shade. Yay :)

    Barry M Silvery Lilac is not quite a dupe, but very very pretty for £2.99!

    ooooh love this, reminds me of Leighton Denny Meteor Match but with much more duo capabilities and a touch more sparkle!

    I have this shade and love it. It’s great on its own or layered. I would love to be a shapeshifter.

    Stunning glitz! I love all the the shades, reminds me of the polishes worn by the models on the ramp in Paris.

    I has envy.

    I just stumbled on your blog while googling something entirely unrelated, go figure, and spent an enjoyable five minutes mooching round all these yummy colours.

    I loved nail polish when I was a teenager. Unfortunately my nails tend to be very ridged, while perversely growing ridiculously fast, so nail polish is a pig to apply well and the nail bed starts showing at the bottom in no time at all. However, I enjoyed the vicarious thrill of far out colours from your piccies :-)
