I have been perfectly enamored of butter LONDON Cake-Hole ever since my fabulously glamorous friend Liesl of Liesl Loves Pretty Things showcased it. Yes, I am aware of its indecisive coral-pink status. I remember quite well how sometimes BL's formula and I don't get along. But that's just how good Liesl is. She made me want this polish so badly. I read her review of it several times, just imagining how ultra cool that rubberized finish would feel on my nails! So when butter LONDON had their half price sale, there it was...for $7.50!! In was in my shopping cart before you could say, "You should get Giddy Kipper instead..."
Everything looked so flawless on Liesl. How was I to know Cake-Hole, an almost neon pink, would turn ORANGE on me??
Yes, readers...you are seeing this right. Look at that beautiful bottle shot. Then look at my nails. Two different colors, and one of 'em ain't pretty. I LOVE the rubberized finish on this...just LOVE it!! And it dries in no time flat! But I used THREE coats of Cake-Hole, and Mr. VaNeLi just laughed at me. It's way worse in person, too. And he's still laughing at me...probably because I've been wearing this polish for exactly ONE hour, and one of my tips just peeled slap off. Gone. WHYYYYYYYY??
I have nothing else to say, other than I'm giving up...and probably giving this one to my little sis. Don't try talking me off the ledge.
|Blast you, Cake-Hole!!!|
