Today I am wearing Butter London’s Disco Biscuit layered over Essie’s Tour de Finance.  This was my first time trying a Butter London polish and I think I’m in love.

Disco Biscuit is a sheer jelly polish so I decided to layer it.  I went through my polish bins and chose Essie Tour de Finance as my base.  I picked this bottle up at Superstore when it was on sale but I hadn’t tried it yet.  I adore this colour.  It’s a bright pinky fuchsia colour with a blue toned pearly finish.  Application was fantastic.  The formula wasn’t too runny or too thick; it was just right.  It was opaque after 2 coats, which is what I’m wearing in these pictures.  And the shine!  I am a sucker for shiny nails and this colour dries to a very high shine.  Gorgeous.  I think this is my new favourite Essie polish.  In fact, I fell for this colour so hard I almost didn’t want to top it with Disco Biscuit.  Almost.  😉

Dry time for Tour de Finance was great so I didn’t have to wait long to break into Disco Biscuit.  This polish is a bright pink jelly polish with a bluey purple glitter.  I ordered this polish straight from Butter London in my quest to own Pitter Patter.  I added this one to my order to take advantage of the free shipping and I am so glad I did.  This polish is as beautiful on the nail as it is in the bottle.  I found the glitter in this polish to be about the perfect amount.  It’s not an in your face glitter polish, but the glitter is visible even in dull lighting.  It’s almost the perfect glitter balance.  Application was great and it dried fairly quickly which was nice as these were coats 3 and 4.  My only complaint is that this polish dries a bit duller than I had hoped.  I didn’t use a top coat in these pictures but I added one afterwards.  The high shine top coat didn’t take away from the glitter at all.  I think it may have even enhanced it a bit.  Overall, I am very happy with my first experience with Butter London and can’t wait to try the rest of my BL order.
