NOTD: Butter London No More Waity, Katie and Sea Lore Beluga Blizzard

When I first tried Butter London's No More Waity, Katie, I was so disappointed. It looked so dull... and ugly. I can't believe I just used the word "ugly" to describe a Butter London nail polish, but it's true. I swatched it once, and never used it again. When painted, the nail does NOT look like the bottle. The purple glitter you can see through the bottle does not show through on the nails, and its just bloody poor effort. If I am wearing polish with glitter in it, I want to SEE it on my nails, considering the trouble I'll have to go through to remove the bloody thing. /end rant

When I bought the Sea Lore Beluga Blizzard nail polish 3 months ago, I wasn't entirely sure what to do with it, as it's such a unique shade. It's described as a "Pearl white iridescent shimmering base with various shades of snow white glitter." It wasn't until yesterday that I googled some swatches and found some inspiration from Ashley is Polish Addicted. After digging through my polish collection and swatching for a polish that would best match Beluga Blizzard, I finally settled on No More Waity Katie, and was pleasantly surprised at how well these two polishes go together.

I applied a coat of Butter London Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat, followed by three layers of Butter London No More Waity, Katie. I topped it off with a coat of Sea Lore Beluga Blizzard and then two coats of CND Super Shiney High-Gloss Top Coat.

I think it could probably do with another few more layers of topcoat. I'm a tat unhappy with the wear of this manicure, as it's only lasted a day before chipping. I'm not sure if it's the polishes or if it's the CND top coat I'm testing out. I'll probably give CND another go for my next manicure, and will let you guys know if it's the culprit!

  2. Oh it looks pretty though! It's a shame about the Butter London though... I'd like to see some swatches of it alone so I can see just how ugly it is! ;)
