I've fallen in love.... with butter LONDON

 Did you know that nail colour was used to signify social order in ancient Egypt, 
with red shades at the top?

I recently discovered the brand that is  Butter London and have been obsessed ever since, 
I am now waiting for a whole lot more to arrive in the post any day now.

It is a young company, 
only being founded in 2005 by British entrepreneur Sasha Muir,
 who saw a gap
 in the marketplace for luxurious yet affordable nail lacquer.

Their products are high quality 
and as an added bonus are formulated 
without the use of the harmful ingredients like 
Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP or Parabens 
(butter London being the first company in the USA to offer this).

From my experience butter nail polishes go on smoothly, 
dry well 
and aren't anywhere near as prone to chipping
 compared to what i have seen from example Essie and OPI for example.

Today i will give you a peek at Chancer 
- an amazing glitter polish that reminds me of the ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz...

This is what butter had to say...

Wear this deep, 
“crushed glitter” red when you are feeling particularly out of his league. 
He doesn’t deserve you anyway."

I really do love this colour,
 and if you are looking to get some new nail polish butter London is definitely the way to go!

I have worn another in the other posts i have done called Thames, 
which reminds me of the ocean.
If you want to see these posts are under the Tara tag.
