Hello again everyone! Today is officially the last day of my 'freedom' so to speak, but more of that in another post.
In this one, I want to quickly share pictures and swatches of my first ever Butter London polish!
For the longest time I have been wanting to get my hands on these and sure they are available at Takashimaya but everytime I go by there (which isn't too often), I forget to drop by and check that display out. Though it's not like they have a huge range to choose from anyway.
So... enter ArglyDuckling!
ArglyDuckling is a new online boutique with a pretty quirky definition to themselves. In terms of the name, it's explains the general direction that all of us are just waiting to transform into beautiful swans with the right amount of effort and products!
I also like that apart from some familiar brands, ArglyDuckling aims to source out cutting edge brands that are not very known to us. So, instead of another online boutique carrying what everyone else has, ArglyDuckling has that little more to offer!
I think the easiest way would be for you to check out the website and find out for yourself!
But back to my Butter London.
Putting 1 and 1 together, yes ArglyDuckling does stock Butter London on their website and it's a pretty decent selection of colors at that!
I picked out Muggins for myself as I am still in that whole pastel and light phase but the bright colors are tempting and I may just have end up with Butter London #2 in my stash soon.
Muggins is a greyish-pastel-purple that leans purple in some light but grey in others, making it quite a chore to capture on camera.
The polish feels runny in consistency (compared to what I am generally used to), though it builds up quite okay with 2 coats.
For the swatches below, I applied 3 thin coats to give it that more opaque finish and prevent the nail bed from peeking through at all.
While this was 3 coats, it didn't feel thick on due to the runny nature of the polish, so I guess that worked out in the end. It dries rather fast between coats as well so it doesn't take too long to paint 3 coats on.
In terms of color, I am really liking how soft Muggins is yet it still stands out in terms of the pastel purple. Like Dior's Glacier, I can definitely see myself reaching for this shade if I can't decide what to wear!
Butter London retails for S$23 on ArglyDuckling.com, which is cheaper than what we get at Takashimaya. Plus if you spend over S$50, you qualify for free postage!
Aside from Butter London, ArglyDuckling also carries Deborah Lippmann and Laqa & Co Polish Pens.
Thanks for reading and head on over to start shopping!
