Sunday's Snowman NOTD

Currently watching: Scrubs

Good morning lovely ladies!

I have to start by apologising for not posting for a while.  I came back to my parents' house on Wednesday for the holidays and of course I brought my camera loaded with pictures of my recent manicures but... I forgot the cable to connect my camera to the laptop. 

Yesterday I finally had the chance to paint my nails afresh and be at home during the day when there was enough light for me to take some decent photos using my parents' camera.  Most excitingly of all, I was able to use my new Butter London polish, The Dark Knight!


At work we do Secret Santa and The Dark Knight was the gift I received from my not-so-secret Santa.  I was thrilled to get this as not only is it a pretty polish, it is also my first Butter London.


The Dark Knight is a black base packed with tiny particles of pink, blue, silver and gold glitter.  I know some people use underwear with this polish but by applying two coats over my base coat I achieved perfect opacity.


I decided the polish would make a great background for a snowman design so I made an accent nail by stamping a snowman using Konad Special White polish and Bundle Monster plate BM 318.  I then added black buttons and a carrot for the snowman's nose with a small dotting tool.


I absolutely love the end result and am so happy I now have a Butter London polish in my collection.  I can't wait to add more from the range ;-)
 
What do you think of this manicure girls and which Butter London polishes are in your collection?
 
Bye for now,
Laura

  3. It's okay to break from blogging. I fear that Christmas will be a slow day on blogosphere, but then afterwards everyone will post about their presents :O) Lots of exciting stuff to read.

    What a cute do! Love the snowman.
