My first Butter London's

First of all... I desperately cannot wait to get a new camera. Mine is horrible at photographing pinks/oranges.. So I apologize in advance for my dimly lit photos.

On the other hand, I placed an order from nailpolishcanada a while back and it included my first ever Butter London polishes, Marrow (purple) and Trout Pout (pink).. as well as a couple Deborah Lippmann polishes (look forward to those in later posts). I might do a haul post soon, I'm just waiting on a few more things to arrive in the mail.

On to the manicure... I followed this cute tutorial and I think it turned out pretty good.. I only wish my nails were longer. I had a major chipped nail fiasco last weekend so my nails will take a while to recover :(


I used Finger Paints Paper Mache to paint the bow and then added little beads. 
I topped it all off with a matte top coat although my cuticle oil added a bit of a shine.
*Edit: the matte top coat I used was Warpaint Beauty
