butter LONDON Poole & Bit Faker

I haven't worn a blue in a while so I thought I'd pull out a polish I bought back during bL's first Last Orders sale of the year. 

Poole (after the resort/tourist town in Dorset, England) is a little difficult for me to describe. It's not a straight up aqua; it's more diffused and subdued than that. But it's definitely not sky blue. Maybe if aqua and sky had a baby and then let it roll in dust? I don't know. Whatever it is, it's lovely. 

I bought Bit Faker as well. It's an utterly gorgeous full-coverage bronze glitter. Poole and Bit Faker belonged together so I slapped it on as an accent (unfortunately only on the right hand...I forgot about the left side so my manicure looks a little lopsided). I can see it working for both summer and winter, and fully plan to wear it alone as a Thanksgiving mani. It's a top coat gobbler, but even without my NYC it catches the light beautifully. I top coated it anyway, which was an exercise in futility. 

3 coats of each, plus top coat. 


  1. Cute combination of beautiful colours!
