Manicure Monday - Butter London's No More Waity Katie

Happy Monday girls! This week I decided to wear a nail polish I never use. I knew there was a reason why I never pulled it out. Before I talk about the polish, let me give you a little background on why I bought it.

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.
No More Waity Katie in the flesh
 I don't know about you all but I go crazy over limited edition beauty products. It's like feeding an addiction to know you have something that everyone else is looking for! So the hoarder in me bought the polish.

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.
Pros
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.

Cons
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?

Love and desserts,

    The color is great, especially with some toned-down greys and blacks...but the goopy texture, there is no way I could work with that!!! I have a hard enough time with smooth and watery!!!

    I look forward to following along :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by!

      I agree with you on everything. The color is realy nice, but the goopey texture is a pain in the butt! HAHA I totally feel you. It's hard enough doing my nails with a polish with a nice formulation. I get polish all on my skin! haha

      Now following you via Bloglovin! :)

  2. I just saw the Butter London nail polishes and was tempted to buy one since i also hear them a lot in Youtube but was too expensive. Maybe i will give a try to one that is not the same formula as yours! :) Nice post and blog! New follower from blog hop!

    1. They are a bit pricey. Try seeing if you can find a sale on them when you do purchase them. I'm sure they are good polishes, but this particular formula just wasn't working for me! haha Thanks so much for the sweet comment and for following! I'm now following you as well via Bloglovin! :)
