Butter London Gobsmacked Swatch

Standard

Butter London Gobsmacked seems similar to Butter London Fiddlesticks. It’s full of glitters, and has tid-rough finish for the texture.

I thought that this polish would be more black, but it’s actually dark-grey with lots of silver glitters (which appear white in the photo below). It’s a classy polish that’s not too goth, but fun and modern. I feel like it’s a really good color for the winter!

Here’s base coat, two coats of Gobsmacked, with top coat under natural sunlight! Excuse the poor condition of my cuticles…

Julep Zelda

Standard

This is a long overdue review of Julep Zelda! Yes, the name of this polish is Zelda! It’s not Zelda Ocarina Time of Zelda, though. This polish was named after Zelda Fitzgerald, the wife of F. Scott Fitzgerald, the author of the Great Gatsby. I got this polish as a part of Julep’s May Maven box, which was flapper styled (I think because many beauty product companies expected The Great Gatsby movie to leave a great impact on the female viewers…)

This polish consist of silver shiney coat, and light copper ‘dye’ that colors the silver pieces. is very similar to Julep Sienna, but it feels cooler because of the silver base tone. And like Sienna, and Cindy, this Julep metallic nail polish puts on really well without leaving streaks. I think I remember Julep blog calling this color a pink gold polish. I guess I can see that but I still would label this color copper-ish silver polish.

First photo is under shade, and second one is under direct sunlight. All of them are with two coats of Zelda, and Essie Good to Go top coat!

Like I said, it puts on well. It’s a good nail polish, but I feel like it kind of overlaps with Julep Sienna. I should definitely try to use it more often though.
