Meet Butter London’s Holiday 2012 Collection*. (*^up above, not my pic) Lots of interesting contendors here today. Today I have for you the one know as “Scuppered”. Which, I have to admit, the definition of this word made me appreciate this polish more.
“Scuppered” is one that, especially in artifical Ulta lighting, does not really know which way it wants to go. One way it looks tingy green, then copper, then brown, then pinky brown. With large green hex glitter, is it a holiday polish or is it a rusty sunken ship? Hm….
While I have seen other blogs who mention coverage as being decent (2 coats? In your dreams!), I found it to be thinner than expected and needing four coats to reach full potential.
While this polish is not duo-chromy, it does show interesting tinges at certain angles. Looks a little greenish below, jah?
Verdict? I am not so sure. To be honest, how it appears in bottle set SUPER high expectations for me. ..and I should know better than to trust the amazing, flattering, super shiny lighting of department stores where they’re trying to get you to buy. all. the. things.
It is pretty, and [kinda]dfferent, but to me it’s not SO different to fully justify my purchase. In most lighting it just looks like a brown to me. ..And browns are not my favorite.
Recommended? If you like browns and coppers then YES otherwise don’t expect too much color out of this one. The majority of other colors, such as the green hexes, aren’t extremely visible unless inspected closely or in just the right light.
Butter London Holiday 2012 Collection retails for $14 and can be found at various retailers including Ulta and their own website ButterLondon.com.
