My First Butter London! : Knackered Swatches & Review

I've been waiting for this day for so long, the day when... I got my first Butter London *dramatic music* ! I acquired this bad boy from Totally Lacquer Obsessed when I won one of many of the giveaways that she is always having via her blog and Facebook (check them both out, she's great!). Now, on to the polish. Let me start off by saying that pictures do NOT do justice to this polish and its beauty. The color I received is Knackered which is a very sheer duo-chrome that flashes from a metallic purple to a seafoam green & also contains tiny holographic glitter. The application on this polish is great, no streaks, no bubbles, no bumps. Another thing I like about the polish is the brush, nice and wide for easy application.

This is 3 coats of Knackered on its own taken in the sunlight. As you can see, my free edge is 100% visible, which I was shocked by because out of the sun the polish is very opaque. I'd recommend 4-5 coats if you plan to wear it alone on long nails.

Check out this duo-chrome action! Love it <3

This is 1 coat of Knackered over 1 coat of Klean Color's black. This really helped enhance the colors and I thought this was the ultimate combo until...

I randomly decided to swatch it over a random color just for the sake of it and it was one of the prettiest things I have ever seen! This is 1 coat of Knackered over 1 coat of Klean Color's Teal Envy. It added a nice metallic finish to the whole nail and made the holo glitter go crazy!

Overall, after my experience with Knackered I will most certainly be getting myself some Butter Londons. What other must haves are there? Let me know below and have a wonderful day :) !


  1. omg buy The Full Monty! Buy eeeeeet. Haha I love Butter Londons...they are my favorite brand, hands down. The Full Monty is gold...shiny and beautiful <3

  2. Knackered looks AMAZING over China Glaze Sea Spray. If you have that color try it out. Butter LONDON is addictive so watch out. I already have 12!
