Butter London Knackered

Speaking of Butter London, we have a small Giveaway of the Butter London Basecoat and Topcoat set, click here to check it out!  Knackered is a gorgeous multi-chrome.  By itself it requires three coats and it mostly shows silver and green.  Butt layered over purple it shows three different colors, and the silver becomes darker, love it.  Now the glitter, let's talk about the glitter in this, I though it was going to be too much, but I was wrong, it perfectly blends with the colors of the nail polish.  The third picture was intentionally blurred to show the holographic effect.  I am impressed with this one, normally I wouldn't have gone for a color like this because I already have similar ones, but the glitter really adds something else to it, enough to justify having it along all the other silver/green duo-chromes.  The formula is great in application, but after it dries in some lights you can see brush-strokes, and in other lights you can see bumps from the glitter.  Overall, it looks like in these pictures, I'd say these are pretty accurate, so most of the times it's this beautiful sparkling grey (almost metallic) lacquer.

    1. Thank you, I really like it layered too, you can see a much stronger duo-chrome effect.

    1. Thanks! I like it too, I was surprised in a good way when I wore it, because from the bottle you can't really tell how pretty it is.

  5. I thought this one looks so pretty in the bottle but on the nail it is sheer and I had a hard time getting the full color effect. After seeing this post I will try layering it over a purple!
