Butter London Nail Foundation

Butter London Nail Foundation
I just finished a bottle of this so I'm sure I can give you my solid thoughts on this one. Butter London Nail Foundation is a base coat that has a sheer peach tint to it with a matte finish. This one costs a bit more than regular Butter London polishes, if you live in Australia,  this will cost you $26.95. However, a slight increase in price can be justified as you get a generous 17.5 ml of product. Picture shown is one coat of Nail Foundation over bare nails.

The texture of this is slightly thick. I do like this one when worn alone; it is a perfect my nails but better polish and it is not streaky at all, even on the first coat. As a base coat, honestly I think it's not bad. I don't see a big difference in terms of longevity of my mani. In terms of preventing stains, it's not the best but it does a decent job at it. However, I read some people actually like this base coat. The only thing that annoys me out of this is its drying time. I expect my base coat to fully dry by the time I finish painting all of my nails. Will I repurchase this? No as I've tried better. However I do recommend this one for people who wants a natural nail look.

Have you tried this? Do you like this base coat?

I should have...

Essie Mint Candy Apple
I should have bought Essie Mint Candy Apple years ago! I first spotted this baby about three years ago but decided to pass because I have so many similar colour in my collection. I know this one is a cult item, everyone loves them and I can see this colour suit a myriad of different skin tones. Finally decided to splurge a bit on it few days ago, since Priceline is having $4 off all Essie nail polish.

That Moment When You Stumbled Across Great Polish at the Drugstore

Essence Purple Sugar
This past two weeks have been insane for me! My whole week is loaded with assignments and essays and presentations and all that. Anyway I am back! Today I just have to share this beautiful pinky purple creme polish from Essence with you!

This stuff cost me less than $3AUD!!! So affordable and I just love how it looks! As with all Essence polishes, they have this beautiful wide brush that's slightly rounded to hug cuticles nicely and it's opaque with only 2 coats. Even though not marketed as a fast-drying polish, I find this polish dries pretty quickly between coats. If you manage to find it in your local Target or Priceline, I really suggest that you pick it up. For less than 3 dollars, you won't regret it!

Pink Neutral Nails

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shell we Dance

A quick post today. Just want to share what nail polish I've been wearing lately. This is Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Shell we Dance. This is a pale sheer pink nail polish that is perfect for french manicure. It is also amazing on its own to give that 'your nails but better' look. With this one, you cannot expect to get full opacity tho. I think this colour is perfect for work and holidays as it will match everything you wear whatever the season. Nude nails are always in!
