Butter London Cheeky Chops & Cotton Buds


Meet Butter London Cheeky Chops and Cotton Buds…. I’m excited to blog about these because I think they’re beautiful and together make the perfect Summer mani!   Cheeky Chops is from the new Pop Art collection and my dream shade of yellow.  Soft and buttery banana yellow, it isn’t citrusy or sharp like most.  It’s a little softer than it looks on my nails - the bottle colour is how it actually looks applied in real life.  Cotton Buds is from the Colour Clash collection and works as a base to make the brights pop or in nail art - I’ve used it as both in these pics. 


I was impressed at the opacity of Cotton Buds - this is two coats, but it was almost opaque in one.  I’ve never used a white polish before and am looking forward to creating more looks with this!

I painted over the white with Cheeky Chops, leaving two nails as a base for some nail art. I did these using Bourjois’ new double-ended dotting tool, which makes it really easy to do large and small dots.  The easiest way to do this is to pour a drop of polish onto a page but for speed I just lifted it straight from the brush.  The colour of Cheeky Chops looks the most true to life in this particular pic (above), though it pops and is more sunny in real life.
