Manni Monday

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend and to all the dads out there I hope they had a fabulous Father's Day. So this week I went very much out of my comfort zone and tried a new nail polish company. 
I have seen lots of press about Butter nail nail polish and have seen them in there pretty packaging displayed all of from Sephora to Macy's. I have to admit I am always intrigued by the packaging, simple & sleek.
So on Thursday my nails were driving me CRAZY and I needed them reshaped and a polish change stat! So while I wasn't planning on this impromptu nail change I didn't bring a nail polish with me to work. One of the many beauties of working in a mall is I had endless stores to go to get my quick fix. So I ran to Macy's (the Macy's in my mall has this great beauty section that carries tons of great top line cosmetic brands including Essie and Butter). So while I browsed my the Essie collection nothing was jumping out at me, and the ones that were I already owned (isn't that funny when that happens?) Since I knew leaving empty handed was not an option I decided to step outside of my norm and go check out the Butter section. 
They had a ton of colors that were just POPPING out at me. I decided to keep it simple so I selected a color that caught my eye first. It's called Yummy Mummy and it's this great neutral shade, and we all know how much I'm a sucker for a good neutral. 

Here is what it looked like on my nails: 

It's an okay color. Am I loving? No. One thing that I don't like at all is that these nail polishes are sealed shut so there is no way for you to test the color out on your nails before you buy it. And let's be honest for $14.00 I want to make sure it looks good on my hand. Luckily the girl at Macy's was nice enough to say if I didn't love the color I could return it. So after I wore it for a couple of days I made the decision to return it. I just didn't feel like it was this amazing color to make it into my collection. 

Have any of you guys tried the butter collection? What did you guys think?? 

Thanks for joining me for another . . .

    1. Yes brights have been taken over my life- or my nails at least! haha

  2. I LOVE Butter London polishes! My favorites are 'All Hail the Queen,' 'Victoriana,' 'RBL,' and more! Here's a tip about picking polishes. I ALWAYS google image search a polish before I buy, it's saved me so much $ and from buying so many unwanted polishes.

    1. What a great idea about googling the colors first- when I was trying to find an image for this post I noticed that there were a ton of images. Thanks for the tip and for commenting.

  3. I love Butter London!! Jaffa is my favorite! Thanks so much for linking up with Mani Monday!!
