Nail polish seems to be all the rage right now. I mean, like, nail polish has literally taken over the makeup/beauty world. It’s everywhere. And for me personally, this is great because I have been a long-time fan of nail polish. And when I say long-time, I am not exaggerating. My personal polish collection probably totals somewhere around two-hundred bottles. Yeah. Two-hundred. And it’s still growing. What can I say? I’m a polish-addicted, glitter-loving, manicure ADDICT. There. I said it. I’m addicted to nail polish….and I know I’m not alone.
Because I own so much polish, I try to do my nails at least 3 times a week. Sometimes more, sometimes less. Many times I will go an entire week with the same manicure, simply because I just do not have the time to do my nails. And there are some weeks when I re-do my manicure every single night. So, I decided I am gonna share some of my nail madness with you guys. If you follow me on Instagram ( lindsaykaep is my username) then you already have some insight into my nail polish filled world. I like to take pictures of my polished, pretty nails and share ‘em!
So, I am going to try and incorporate a sort of ‘manicure-of-the-day’ section to CandyBarbie. It won’t be daily…so think more along the lines of ‘manicure-of-the-week’
And it starts….N-O-W!
Nail Polish Review: Butter London ‘Sprog’
‘Sprog’ was only my second time wearing a Butter London polish. A couple of weekends ago I went to Ulta and picked up 3 polishes: Sprog, Hen Party and No More Waity, Katie. All by Butter London. I wore Hen Party first….and I will save that for a later review. So, as I said, Sprog was only my second experience with Butter London. I absolutely love the color of this polish! The photo isn’t really accurate, though, I do have to admit. In real life, this polish is not nearly as vibrant as it is in the photo. But, I don’t mean that in a bad way. IRL, it is actually more of a pale-ish periwinkle blue. Not bright blue like the photo suggests. It is still a really lovely color, though! At $14 per bottle, I was a bit weary. That is pricey for polish, especially as I had never worn the brand before. But I am glad I bought it! I really like it….this will most certainly be a repeat manicure. The formula was okay. Not the best, but definitely not the worst. It was mildly sheer with just one coat, but became perfectly opaque with two coats. I used Essie All in One Base as my base coat and finished off this mani with a coat of Seche Vite. Overall, a very nice manicure. I actually got several compliments on this color….but removed it after only two days to try something else! As I said, though, I will use it again. The best part about this polish, IMO, is the fact that it is a fun, playful color, but still really chic and classy. I mean, when you think of blue nails, you don’t think that is a polish color that would be appropriate for, say, a wedding. But it totally would be! It’s a great shade/pop of color without being too loud or obnoxious. I would recommend this polish anytime, anywhere.
