Um, okay yeah I am a tad over-excited but OMG OMG OMG OMG I finally have a holographic polish in my collection AND to make today even more awesome I'm going to a concert tomorrow :) Yay!!!!!!

Anyway I guess I should apologize for the excessive use of exclamation marks in this post, in advance, and stop rambling. Today I brought Butter London's Fishwife which has been described by others as a teal linear holographic polish. I'm not going to mess with that because it's pretty much spot-on. However, I would add that it's a pretty subtle teal, especially when you are inside and there is no sunlight.


As soon as I got home I painted one of my fingers and was a little disappointed but then once I actually sat down properly and painted all of my colours, experimenting with layering it over another polish too, I was much more happy. And THEN the sun came out and I was one super-excited / happy polish addict. In the sunlight this polish is AMAZING!!!!!!


On my middle finger I layered two coats of Fishwife over Essence's ' In Style' which is a dark teal polish and on my thumb I used one layer of Sportgirl's 'Love Potion' and two or three layers of Fishwife. My other fingers are purely only Fishwife. Three coats seems to eliminate any visible nail line but because this is the most expensive polish I have ever brought ($19.95) I will definitely be layering this over another polish....haven't found the perfect polish to layer it over yet but considering I only got it today I think that's totally fine!
Inside, no flash. 

I really love this polish, the colour is fantastic and the formula is really easy to work with. The formula is pretty thin but drying time is super-quick so it definitely is not an issue :) It is also 3-free which I consider to be very important and the linear holographic effect I would consider to be of moderate strength  however I have no prior experience with holographic polishes apart from admiring pictures on other people's blogs.

Outside, no flash. Sunlight

I took 150 or so photos of this polish and annoyingly a ton of them came out blurry but I did get some good photos!!! Okay so I don't feel like this post does justice to this polish at all. It is just random ramblings!!! But overall, long story cut short: Great holographic polish, formula is easy to work with and it dries quick. 

Cheers, :)

    1. Thanks!!!! I hope the computer set-up goes smoothly, I get really impatient with my computer whenever I have to do something to it, lol!

      There are no official stockists of Butter London in Australia (according to the website) but I found this in a health food / vitamin supplement store at my local shopping trip.

      Looking forward to seeing your manicures :)
