I had been waiting for my local Ulta to put out Butter London's new Spring line so I could try out Slapper. We got there this evening and couldn't find it anywhere - the fall line was still featured! They had it in their ad to be out Sunday. So we found someone and asked and she said that might have it in the back and haven't put it out yet. She asked what color I was looking for and headed to look. Slightly bummed and very hopeful she returned with it in her hand! I was pretty stoked - she gave strange look to my reaction! We figured that she just didn't get it! Hehe! As always I had to dig through their clearance shelves to find and Essie that we really liked. On the way out RJ looked back to find that Layla had a display. He asked, "Isn't that the magnetic nail polish you were talking about before?" I ran over and had to get one to try out, and I let him pick the color. Here is what I took home that night.
Butter London - Slapper, Essie - Your Hut or Mine,
China Glaze - Some Like it Haute, Layla - 11 Silver Galaxy
I've swatched Slapper for now, and I had some fun with it. Please excuse the mess along a couple nails. Did this quickly because i was excited to share! This is my second Butter London lacquer and once again, I just love it. I really like the awesome gloss it dries to on its own.
This is 2 coats with no topcoat - but for some reason, it seems to photograph bluer that it really is. Its definitely more of a greener teal-like color but every light I used the camera saw blue. I would say that it is very true to what you see in the bottle. This is such a fun color and it really pops. I added a coat of Finger Paints Flecked on top.
It almost seems like they were made for each other. Flecked is has a great blue-green shimmer to it and just blended with this so well. Last I added a coat of Essie Matte About You. My fiance, RJ is a fan of this top coat and he really liked the final outcome.
