butter LONDON Disco Biscuit

So butter LONDON's Spring 2012 collection just came out and I happened to be at Nordstrom's Saturday night so I picked up 3 out of the 5.  First up to show you is Disco Biscuit, which is a hilariously fun name, and an equally fun color.  

Let's start with the name.  The handy dandy butter LONDON dictionary tells us:

Disco Biscuit   |   ˈdiskō ˈbiskit  |  
A club term from the rave days of the early 90’s for a tablet of Ecstasy.

Now the color - it's full on party, so the name is appropriate.  It's a bright pink jelly with gorgeous blue shimmer that does not hide at all.  This is SO SO SO fun.  And girly.  This would be a great girls martini night polish.  The formula is pretty great, as jellies usually are.  It flowed perfectly.  On the other hand, cause it's a jelly it's pretty sheer.  This was 4 thin coats.  It dries a little matte, so it dries pretty quickly.  The first set of pictures are without a top coat, so you can see the texture and sparkle.  The sparkly looks totally different when it's got top coat on it.  Make sure you click to enlarge!

Now for some top coat.  I loved this before, but with top coat it is something else entirely.  It's a subtle transformation, but it totally puts this polish on steroids.  Between the shine, the squishy texture, and the way the blue shimmer comes alive and seems to float in the pink lacquer.  Swoon!

Disco Biscuit just came out so there won't be any worries on snatching this up.  You can find it today at Ulta or Nordstroms for $14 a bottle.  I also picked up Knackered and Slapper.  Which do you want to see tomorrow?

  3. I was doing my nails with Disco Biscuit tonight and was trying to figure out what was up with the texture. Thanks for making me realize I wasn't crazy XD

    The blue shimmer is really what makes this polish, and I'm thrilled that it shows up as well on the nail as it does in the bottle!
