My First Butter London....Jury is still out.

I recently had the opportunity to go to NYC with family.  We stayed in Brooklyn but toured around Manhatten for the weekend.  I was on a mission. That mission was to find a Ricky's and buy polish.  Sadly, there was not this tremendous selection that I had hoped for.  There was, however, Butter London.  This is not an item that you can find readily in upstate NY.  I was excited but their selection of Butter Londons was huge and I had a tough time making a decision.  I finally went with Dosh because it was so different than anything else I owned.  Pricey but everyone LOVES Butter Londons.  I never seem to read a bad review.  It always seems to go on flawlessly.  So, here is my final product.  As usual, I forgot to take a picture before stamping.


I stamped over the top with Konad's m57 and Mattese Elite Solid Gold.  I wanted a snakeskin effect but the polish stamped very lightly so it looks more like a gold shimmer.  My problem was that the polish just didn't apply well.  It went on thick in some spots and thin in others.  I have never seen anyone else have this problem.  Anyway, I am happy with the color and the final product.

  2. Dosh is one of my favorite BLs, wait I love all my BLs!! Sorry you had such a sucky time with it. Maybe you got a bad formula. You should email them and maybe they will replace it! :) Looks gorgeous on you by the way! :)
