I don't have a large stash of Butter London polishes, but I do truly adore each and every one that I do own! This particular nail polish, Scallywag, is from Butter London's Holiday 2012 Collection. A lot of great polishes, and Butter London favorites of mine, are from that collection including Shambolic, Fairy Cake, Fiddlestiks, and Jack The Lad. Did I just name like half the collection? Oops, yeah
Scallywag is a beautiful sky blue glitter suspended in clear base. However, it is also opaque enough in 1 thick coat or 2 thin=medium coats and provides full coverage. Maybe Milani's 1-coat glitters may rival this in opacity, but the quality and finish in the BL is truly superb.
Application was flawless, and without topcoat, Scallywag dries to a really cool satiny finish. I did this manicure on my friend (In case you've noticed that those are not my nails) and she preferred to topcoat it, so all pictures were taken with the following:
- CND Stickey Base Coat
- Butter London, Scallywag - 2 coats
- CND Speedey Top Coat
I honestly cannot find fault in this nail polish. NONE. It's not terribly unique (Plain blue full coverage glitter) but it performs brilliantly and sparkles like you won't believe. I can't stop staring at my nails whenever I wear this shade. It's not tame, that's for sure!
