Butter London Slapper NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On May - 18 - 2012

Butter London’s Slapper, a.k.a the hardest nail polish to photograph in the world, ever.  It’s a super-bright teal which definitely leans more green than blue.  It’s more vibrant and a bit deeper than my photograph shows.  I was getting massively frustrated trying to capture the shade until I google image’d it and it turns out that I’m not the only one who suffered!

Unlike the others that I’ve tried from the Spring/Summer collection, Slapper went on like a textbook nail polish dream, the above photo shows two coats of perfection – the shade gave me no issues at all.  This season’s brights from the brand have all been edgier than the traditional summer neons though practically as bright and eye-catching.  The subtle nuances and retro-leanings have ensured that they stand out from the other releases, though so far, the formula has been a little unpredictable.

Butter London Slapper is available to buy online from PowderRooms, priced at £11.95.

    I had problems photographing OPI Fly, it just did not want to come out its true shade!

    Isn’t it frustrating trying to capture a true shade – it knocks trying to work out a flattering angle on my aged face into a cocked hat! – I have just purchased a new camera and whilst it is very good I still find that I have to tweak the exposure, and the colour just to get across some of the vibrancy. What I like in this picture is that you have got over the fact that it is a teal with a touch of shimmer? Thanks Charlotte I can only marvel at your skill :)
