As many of us are obsessed with Youtube on here, I'm sure there has been a time, or two, or twenty where you bought something you probably didn't need because of a beauty blogger. It literally happens to me all the time.
It was the spring semester of my sophomore year in college. The two biggest topics in the media that I can remember from that time were Charlie Sheen and the royal wedding. I was watching a video by Ingrid aka missglamorazzi and she mentioned this polish by Butter London.
Before then, I had never heard of Butter London polishes. When Ingrid showed the polish, I knew I had to have it. Why? Because it looked so pretty in the bottle, it was a perfect color for spring and most importantly it was inspired by Kate Middleton.

When it came in the mail, I was so excited. My excitement was quickly short-lived because once I tried the polish on I was not a fan at all. I'm still not a fan. Here's my pros and cons of the polish.
1. I love the color. It's spring polish, but it's not your typical spring color. When I think spring polishes, I usually think of pastels.This is a nice twist on the traditional colors.
2. It's 3-Free. Butter London polishes don't have formaldehyde, toluene, or DBP in their formula. I'm pretty sure I don't own any other 3-Free nail polishes, so kudos to Butter London.
1. Formula. I don't like the formula whatsoever. When I bought this, I knew it was a jelly polish, but I had no idea it would be so hard to work with. I don't know how other Butter London polishes are, but this one is not about the right. The polish is too goopey for my liking.
I just feel really indifferent about this color. I love it in the bottle and I love the swatches for it online. It looks stunning on other peoples nails, but I don't feel like it looks all that great on me. I kind of feel like my nails look sloppy.
We'll see how long the polish hold up on my nails though.
What do you think of this color?
