What, another haul?

My final splurge of Butter London arrived yesterday. No, I didn't open the box to find the bottles artfully (phhhht!) arranged like that - I took the time to do it. It is surpisingly hard to artfully arrange bottles on top of packing peanuts!

T-B, L-R
The Black Night - Henley Regatta - Rosie Lee
All Hail the Queen - Thames
Bluey - HRH - West End Wonderland 

It was good timing, because my Fly polish was starting to really show the edges, so on my left hand, I trimmed off the nails and painted away with Henley Regatta. Fly and Henley Regatta perfect matches.

I was then told that we needed to get going, going to the pub for dinner. So my right hand didn't get painted - no one noticed - infact my left right hand is still plain old Fly and untrimmed.

The photo you are about to see includes awful cuticles, my right hand, vastly different lengthed nails, tip wear and was extremeley difficult to take with my iphone. I balanced the camera, put my fingers in front, hoped it focused and took the shot using my earphones and my teeth.


  1. Lollll! hilarious how you took the photo but nice! I am soo jelous! Where do you buy Butter London from? I'm from Australia too and don't know where to buy some (relatively cheap) butter londons!

    1. ozsale? about $14 each when its on. is having them for 13.95 now.

      cant wait for the rest of the swatches!

    2. I think I got these from Buyinvite. I have to buy all my polish online because I live in the middle of the desert - a slight exaggeration but not far off :)

  2. Argh I'm so jealous of all your Butter London polishes! I have so many one my wishlist but I only own one BL which was from a giveaway :(

    BTW I nominated you for the One Lovely Blog Award!
