I made a haul at beautymark.ca last week which is the only Canadian online shop where I found butter London nailpolishes! :) They also have many other brands that are hard to find in Canada, or brands you may only find at Holt Renfrew. They didn't have the polishes I wanted in stock but I bugged them about it on twitter and they put it back in stock in the next couple of days plus offered me free shipping! YAY! :P
Sparkly pink - Rosie Lee ($17), Shimmery taupe - All Hail McQueen ($17), and Rosebud Salve ($8) in a tube which is not offered at my local in-store Sephora apparently?
Butter London nail polishes are "3 Free" meaning they have a unique formula that contains no formaldehyde, no toluene, and no DBP - chemicals which are all human carcinogens. Many beauty companies use these ingredients because the cost is cheap and BL are trying to raise awareness on beauty products that may cause a health risk. And now a close-up of the beauteeful colors! :) Left - Rosie Lee, Right - All Hail McQueen (Tribute to Alexander McQueen).
As with many rectangular shaped nail polishes, the cap pops off and there is another round screw cap on top :) The brush itself is relatively thin, comparable with Essie brushes.
The formula is definitely sheer as you can see, top photo - 1 coat, bottom photo - 2 coats. But you immediately notice the fine shimmers :D It's also very difficult to mess up in terms of painting over the edges onto your skin, or streaking because of the sheer formula :) SWEET! For best results 3 coats is required. I left it at 2 coats!
The final result:
I also found out that indigo.ca offers a much cheaper price than you would find in-store at Indigo, Chapters, or other bookstores. Plus you get free shipping with a $39 purchase. I made my first online purchase of Mini Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella, finally a new book in the series! Also, Lauren Conrad's Sugar & Spice and her Style book. Can't wait to read them :)!
