Well, I bought Butter London’s Jasper recently, from their Spring/Summer 2013 collection:
And I put it on, and hated it. I’ll do it again, for the blog, but let’s just say that my search for a nice yellow continues. It’s bizarre, because I tend to look good in yellows, but for some reason, not in yellow polishes (yet!).
So, I turned to an old trusty polish of mine, Butter’s Disco Biscuit, from the Spring/Summer 2012 collection. A Disco Biscuit is defined in the Butter dictionary as “A club term from the rave days of the early 90’s for a tablet of Ecstasy.” I can 100% see how this polish reminds someone of a rave.
Butter’s website describes the polish as “Tropical hot pink with an undercurrent of tiny iridescent glitter particles.”. Totally accurate. I love this polish – it’s pink, it’s glittery, it dries really quickly because it’s a jelly. All my favourite things. I think the sparkles are almost blue, more than iridescent, but I’m certainly not complaining. It looks awesome.
I covered it with a couple coats of Lippmann’s Diamonds and Pearls to make it EXTRA shimmery. There’s no such thing as TOO much shimmer. Well, there is, but…I didn’t really care.
This is definitely a jelly polish, needing 3 coats for opacity. I do like how it looks with just two coats, to be honest, but I went for the three. It goes on really smooth, which is surprising, I would have expected this colour to be gritty. Zoya as a base and Seche Vite as a top coat.
Wear and Removal
Wore great- I got 3 days out of it, and only changed to a pale pink because I had a meeting with important people the following day. Removal was a pain, the glitter in the polish was pretty embedded into my nails, but a few minutes and it was off.
What do you think of this colour? Are neons definitely out for this spring/summer?
