Knackered by Butter London

The first thing I said to Franci when I spotted this lacquer by +butter LONDON was, 'This looks like the Milky Way!' Knackered is described as a sheer, twinkling oyster shade flecked with micro glitter particles. The purple gray base dances beautifully against the glitter. Don't let the word glitter scare you off; it was very easy to remove. I applied 3 coats of Knackered so the opacity matches the bottle as I am not one for sheer shades. Like all of my experiences with Butter London, it applied cleanly, leveled evenly and lasted 36 hours before it started chipping. This is a delicious shade that you should add to your collection. I rate Knackered 4.5 stars out of 5.

Surf Spray. Swatches from Revlon's Parfumerie.

This is a fun shade! Surf Spray *Yes, I have called it smurf spray by accident. A few times.* is part of Revlon's Parfumerie collection. This vibrant aqua lacquer is packed full of shimmer. It requires 3 coats for full opacity; I found 2 coats is quite streaky and even though the lacquer levels off it takes a while to dry. This is my second of 3 Parfumerielacquers.
