Butter London: The Black Night

I realized today that I have not posted anything recently about nail polish! So today, I want to showcase one of my favorite dark nail polishes from Butter London, The Black Night. I got this polish from an Ulta in Houston, TX.

This is a pretty unique polish from Butter London! Normally, I picture Butter London lacquers being pretty straight forward with only solid colors and metallics. I was shocked to find a color this unique. It is a black base with mainly turquoise and pink glitter in it. The polish is creamy and does not have a sand like texture once it is applied. I mixed this polish with a OPI black one. I really like the combination!

I also wanted to show y’all some of my recent nail art designs from the @nailitmag Instagram account! I love the flowers, polka dots, metal studs, and various geometric designs. Here are a few of them:

Formula X for Sephora Review

For all my nail polish followers, here is a post just for you! Recently, at least over the past six months, Sephora has come out with their new nail polish line called Formula X. This collection is composed of many different mini collections. They have translucents, top coats, sparklers, superwatts, classics, shifters, brilliants, neutrals and so much more! Both of my polishes are from the Lusters collection:

  • Super Charged – this is the gray color. It is a black base with many many silver glitter specks in it. I really like this color. It is dark but light at the same time. I also am a huge glitter fan so this is perfect!
  • Mr. Positivity – this is the emerald green shade . It looks turquoise in the pictures but it is more of a dark green than electric blue! The polish is a dark green with many emerald glitter specks in it. Just like Super Charged. It is an awesome unique color that you probably do not have in your collection.

Overall, I am a fan of the Formula X. They have so many different shades with various effects. The packaging is pretty unique. It reminds me a lot of Butter London because it has the black top you take off to the brush. Have you tried Formula X yet?!

Butter London Heavy Medal Collection

The 2014 Winter Olympic games started tonight in Sochi, Russia! I love the Olympics… it is so nice to see all of these countries come together under one roof! Of course, I will be routing for my favorite snow boarder who has won 2 gold medals on the half pipe, Mr. Shaun White! But this is a post about nail polish here Andrea… I got to get myself back on track! I purchased the limited edition Butter London Heavy Medal Collection that was made for the 2012 Summer Olympics that of course, were in London!

Here is what the packaging looked like:

And my polishes:

  • Diamond Geezer – this is the silver polish… I LOVE this polish. I wear it a lot… way more than I thought I would. Silver is a beautiful polish color but can be kind of unusual for some people!
  • The Full Monty – this is the gold polish. I love how metallic it is. I see myself reaching for this polish when I am looking for a simple, yet trendy polish to wear! And like I said above… I will be sporting this GOLD polish the night Shaun White competes!
  • The Old Bill – last but definitely not bad at all… we have the bronze shade. This is a great shade! It is a beautiful rose gold color… but more bronze. I wear this one A LOT! Great for every month.

I loved getting this collection during the summer games. It was awesome to wear all the colors while the 2012 Olympics were happening! Unfortunately, they did not come out with this collection again for the 2014 Olympics… but I am sure someone is bound to be selling this Heavy Metal collection on Amazon or E-bay. ALSO, Butter London sells each of these polishes individually. Butter London has a lot of great nail polish shades! I have a few more from this brand that are not from this collection! I will be sure to post about them soon. Who will you be routing for in the 2014 Olympics?!
