Butter London Gobsmacked

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 7 - 2013

When I first saw swatches of this nail polish appear on the web, my nose wrinkled with disdain.

“Ugh. Lumpy.”

You see, I’m a simple girl (shut up) and I like simple nail polishes. I like shiny cremes, holos, and duochromes. And that’s it. I rarely bother with nail art, which is just aswell, because I’m not very good at it, and I just can’t be faffed with other embellishments.

I decided that, in the case of Gobsmacked, I’d probably like it with a thick coat of Gelous but that without, it could do one.  But then I applied it…

… and I really liked it.

It is lumpy, but in a way that somehow just misses setting my teeth on edge.  It applies nicely in three smooth coats and gave me no drying issues.

Which means that I probably owe a silent apology to all brands that have since followed suit with texture-based collections. I have quietly vomited in my mouth when perusing swatches of concrete, leather, and velvet.  Perhaps I’ve been wrong all along but the thing is, each time I look again…. I still want to rip my nails off in protest.

Butter London Gobsmacked is priced at £11.95 and available to buy online from www.powderrooms.com

  1. This reminds me somewhat of the new Zoya PixieDust polishes.

    What a gorgeous polish! I have kind of a love/hate relationship with texturized polishes. When I’m wearing one with texture I can’t stop rubbing it which probably comes off as a little weird but whatever right? I have yet to get any Butter London polishes (I know right?) but one of these days…

    That is gorgeous.
    Sadly I am still on a major spending ban but I am adding it to my stickynotes list as one to buy the minute the ban ends.

    Also, absolutely delighted to discover that TKMaxx now sell Butter London polishes, with a matching lipgloss, for £9.99 – Bargain!

    I’m slowly coming around to the idea of textured polishes – trying to work out what’s a cheap gimmick and what’s worth keeping is a bit of a trial though. Gobsmacked is fit in my favourite nail colour family though, sooooooooo it’s time to start justifying it to myself!

    That is such a great color :X I just love it. That metallic with glitter is just awesome. I have a question for you, though: do you know any tip for easily removing the glitter? It gives us such a hard time. I’ve been looking for tips regarding this matter, but with no success. I hope you can help me 🙂
