Nonsense

Who knew such a bunch of "nonsense" could look so pretty?

Butter London Fiddlesticks is a deep magenta glitter suspended in a raspberry base.  It was released as part of their Holiday 2012 collection and thus, horribly inappropriate to be wearing in June.  Whatever.  It's pretty and I like it… so I'm gonna wear it.

The coverage is pretty full-on and the above photo shows it worn with 3-coats, which as you can see, delivers full and complete opacity.

Removal is a minor bitch… what with it being glitter and all.  You could layer this one over something like Butter London Blowing Raspberries and I'm sure that a single coat would have much the same effect with less irritation during the removal process.

Butter London Fiddlesticks is priced at £11.95 and available to buy online from PowderRooms.com

    This is such an amazing colour – I picked up “Black Knight” by Butter London a couple of days ago and once my nails are in better shape I’ll be getting it on!

    • Tart with a Heart (which was part of a duo with Black Knight) is also amazing… especially when worn together! Always makes me wish I owned some of that super-thick top coat though to completely kill any grittiness.
