Hi all! I'm capping off Butter London week with my favorite from this fall's Colour Clash collection, the stark while creme that is Cotton Buds.
Butter London does pale and pastel cremes like no one, streak free, self-leveling, and opaque in two coats, so I had really high hopes for Cotton Buds. Even with the known finickiness of white creme polishes, this one is superior. I used three coats here and it's not self leveling, but the formula on this is as nice as some companies' pastels, certainly better than others. White cremes are kind of a bird of a different variety, regardless, and I'm inclined to think that Cotton Buds is worth the investment.
I've been kind of amused watching various companies try to make the "white-hot mani" happen over the last couple years, and I admit I've always loved seeing blog posts featuring a stark white but just couldn't get on board with the look in real life. I love this, though. I really do. Maybe it just took my favorite label offering its own white creme to convince me to give it a go. I'm so enjoying how striking white looks in the summer sun and while I'm not sure how this will translate into fall, with chunky sweaters and wool coats, I'm sure going to try.
Cotton Buds and the rest of the Colour Clash collection are available for $15 each at Ulta and on butterlondon.com. Like Butter London on facebook to stay abreadth of specials and new releases.
