Butter London ~ Pimms and Silly Billy

Butter London ~ Pimms and Silly Billy
Yellow and orange crèmes

Last time I was on a shopping spree in Germany I found two Butter Londons really cheap: Pimms, which is sunflower yellow, and Silly Billy, which is clear orange. I find it difficult to leave a good bargain, so I bought both of them, and today I am using them together.

I made a gradient with yellow down the middle of each nail and orange on both sides of it.

Pimms is surprisingly enough the one that covers the best. I had to sponge on a lot of orange to make it cover.

This is the final mani:

The flowers are all from Moyou London’s stamping plate Tropical collection-01.

I’m pleased I found these two polishes cheap! I do need to find myself some better sponges for the sponging part though. I wasn’t impressed with this lot. I had to pick off a couple of sponge bits that it left behind, and I hate that.

Number of coats: 2 for the yellow, I think 3 for the orange
Drying time: Good
Finish: Crème
Overall impression: Really nice colours, very summery
Buy again: Yes, at the reduced price
