When I was younger, I lived by the seaside… like, right on the seaside. And whenever my Nan used to come for a holiday, she’d pick me up from school and walk me down to the arcades. I must have spent summer after summer on the pier, playing the one-arm bandits with her. Being the nice kind of Nan that she was, she’d feed the machine with money and let me sit on a stool beside her pulling the lever.
Fruit machines aren’t like that nowadays… instead, they’re high-tech, expertly programmed things that make a god-awful racket in the corner of a pub. I say bring back the more genteel OXO ones… and limit people’s spends to 2p a go. Them were the days (I remember when all this was fields etc. etc.)
Anyway, Butter London’s interpretation of a Fruit Machine, is like no fruit machine I’ve ever encountered. Some of these names are a bit bloody random aren’t they? What does pepto-pink have to do with anything?!
Fruit Machine is a pale bubblegum pink with a bright white base that keeps this colour popping right off your fingernails! It looks a little chalky to me but in a mod-esque, edgy kinda way rather than a cheap nail polish kinda way.
The coverage is pretty thick but the formula, completely workable and I was done after two coats. Fruit Machine is one of those happy Spring colours (hello Autumn!) that keeps your focus firmly on your fingertips.
Butter London Fruit Machine is priced at £11.95 and available to buy online from powderrooms.com
