Remember this gift from a polish pal of mine?
I decided to try it this week because the weather was nice and I was feeling springy! It’s brand new and from the Butter London Spring 2013 Collection.
As with all Butter London polishes, there’s a definiton for the polish name- it’s street slang for a five pound note.
Butter describes this colour as an opaque icy mint creme. It reminds me of a super pale seafoam green almost? I don’t love greens, as I’ve said before, but this one is great, and looks great on my skin.
It also matches my gym bag- I think mint green may be the colour of spring this year?! Excellent! I also received several compliments on this colour.
I did need three coats for opacity, though I probably could have gone with two if I had used thicker coats. It applied smoothly, though it was a bit streaky on the first coat, it was perfect after three.
Wear and Removal
This colour wore quite well. I used Zoya’s base and Seche Vite on top, and it wore well for 4 full days, and I probably could have made it through five, really only the tips were wearing (see picture, especially the first finger, and pinky). Mostly I just wanted pink fingers, if I’m being honest. It was also a breeze to take off, just like most creme polishes.
Great colour! I don’t love green, but maybe I secretly love mint green? There’s an exception to every rule!
What does everyone thing of this colour? Isn’t it great for spring? Is mint green the new hot colour? I’m seeing it everywhere!
