Manicure Monday: Butter London Jaffa (Yeah, it's Tuesday...Whoops!)


I love corals and tangerine-orange colors.  This nail color by Butter London is no exception!  I think my favorite part was that it only needed one coat...I was really surprised at how opaque it was.  It would probably look a little better with two coats, but I was in a rush so I was very happy the first coat turned out so great! It is a creme lacquer, so it doesn't have any sparkle or shimmer, just a pretty and creamy finish. 

The other thing I love is that Butter London makes what they call "3 Free Nail Lacquer", which means the nail polishes are free of formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.  I don't know about you, but I prefer as few harmful chemicals as possible!

The only downside was the bottle...the lid was confusing to open at first.  Now that I know how to open it that's no problem!

What do you think of this color? What color is on your nails this week?

(This product was sent to me for review.  However, the opinions in this post are my own.)

    1. So you have to pull the lid off first, then you can twist the cap of the applicator brush thingy (do you like my great terminology, lol) to open it. I thought the lid was a part of the brush, but you just remove it I guess.

  5. Fun color for spring! I am a huge fan of butter London polishes... they seem to be longer wearing and more chip resistant than other brands.
