Nail Mail: Butter London & Fiddlesticks Review

Hi girls! Long time, no see, sorry about the hiatus, between summer vacation, a road trip and a couple more things I did felt much like taking and editing pics of my manis (though I still kept painting my nails regularly).

Anyway, today I want to share with you the first of 5 Butter London nail polishes that I recently got thanks to a couple of lovely ladies that got them for me in the US and sent them my way.

The shades I picked were: Fiddlesticks, Knackered, Disco Biscuit, Victoriana and Two Fingered Salute. I've already worn and loved Victoriana and Disco Bicuit, but I didn't take pics. I did take some of today's mani, which is Fiddlesticks.

Butter London Fiddlesticks was released in the 2012 Holiday collection ands is  a magenta jelly base filled with tiny pink glitter.

It applies really well and is opaque in 2 coats, for this mani I used the Essence Peel Off Basecoat (will come back to let you know how did that go) and 1 coat of Gelous and one coat of Essence Better than Gel Nails Top Sealer (new favorite top coat!) to top it off and leave it smooth as glass.

So, to be my first Butter Londons, I'm extremely happy with this new brand. The formulas on the ones I've tried so far are excellent and Fiddlesticks was no exception. A little hungry, like most glitters, but not bad.

Which one would you like to see next?

Thanks for reading and keeping up with me :)


  1. it looks very festive! for a first, that's a good choice! :D Pls show victoriana next :D

    1. thanks Kumiko! Victoriana is my favorite (well, they are all fabvorite haha) and I'll be happy to share that with you next :)

  2. Wow, that is some awesome nail, and I love Fiddlesticks on you! Good to see you back! :o)

    1. thanks Elizabeth! :) I just have to get of my lazy butt and take pics when I paint my nails (which happens 2-3 times a week anyway lol)

  3. I always love hearing about a nice Butter London formula, because they are really hit or miss for me. Fiddlesticks is soooo gorgeous-wow!

    I'm excited to hear what you think about the Essence Peel Off Basecoat, too!
