Review: butter LONDON Fishwife

Hello lovelies!
Press Sample
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Sorry for my absence! I had a busy day Friday and then had date night with my honey. Saturday was spend celebrating my niece's 1st birthday. Sunday I spent cleaning, watching some movies and also worked on a editing a TON of photos for posts this week!

This week is going to be filled with butter LONDON reviews! I received a generous review package from BL earlier this month and I am so excited to share with you the products they sent me! butter LONDON has been one of my absolute favorite brands as soon as I discovered them. I love the British influence and the names always make me smile. Even better, they are based out of Seattle so they are local to me too! All colors are 3 free and I have yet to be disappointed by any that I have tried!

I had a hard time narrowing down photos so instead of doing one big post I decided it was best to do each color separately. Each color definitely deserves it's own spotlight! I'm starting with a bang and showing you my favorite nail lacquer that I received, Fishwife! Fishwife is described as:

A holographic turquoise and sage nail lacquer.

Such a simple description for such an amazing color! I apologize in advance for all the photos, this beauty deserved every single one of them! ;)

These first few are without topcoat.

These are all with topcoat.

Shown is 2 coats of Fishwife over Julep Nail Therapy base coat. I used Hong Kong Girl top coat and am happy to say that this did not dull the holo one bit! The first coat was kind of patchy but I did apply just a thin coat to start with. The second coat perfected it! When I took the first photos without topcoat it was overcast and no sun at all, I was so happy that the sun started to come out after I put the topcoat on! It still wasn't the best sun though, but the last photo I took I was able to capture what it truly looks like in direct sunlight.

I fell in love with Fishwife immediately and am so happy to have it in my collection! butter LONDON did a fantastic job! If you would like to get Fishwife for yourself or want to see what else butter LONDON has to offer then please check them out here:

  1. I love BL so much! I don't have Fishwife (I need it obvi) but I love Dodgy Barnett. It's one of my all time faves!

    1. That's one I don't have yet but is on my wish list! I love their holos though, Trustafarian is one of my faves! :)

  2. Love this, such a lovely shade and a great strong holo effect. Will have to add this to the ever growing wish list!

    1. It's definitely a must have! I was really impressed with the holo effect! :)
