Review & Swatches - butter LONDON Double Take Ice Duo


Not too long ago I showed you one of the two duos that butter LONDON released for Holiday 2013. The first one is the Fire Duo and the one I'm showing you today is the Ice Duo. Each set features two polishes - one that acts as the opaque base colour and one flakie glitter topper that can be added to create a whole new manicure.

Bluecoat is a deep blue base with lots of electric blue shimmer. The formula was very good and Bluecoat is a very opaque shade. You could probably get away with one thicker coat, but I did two thinner ones to keep it more even looking.

Leccy is a flakie topper that consists of opalescent flakes that shift from blue to purple to even gold. The flakes are slightly sparse so I recommend applying one coat as normal but then using the brush to just dab on a few extra flakes in any bare areas. Apparently "Leccy" is brit slang for electricity, which I think is a pretty neat fact.

butter LONDON polishes are available direct from them (US site/Canadian site/UK site), or you can also get bL from Nail Polish Canada, who is currently offering free shipping on ALL Canadian orders so it's a great chance to stock up on some bL shades if you're in Canada!

Thanks for looking!

    How beautiful! Leccy has definitely jumped high up on my must-have list now! Haha ;-)

  6. Leccy looks amazing, I think it would look beautiful over just about anything :) Great swatches!

  7. My bottle of Bluecoat is thick and goopy and has a nauseating smell, did you not have that issue?
