NOTD: butter LONDON Slapper

(In Ty Pennington voice) HELLO FELLOW POLISHERS!  We had a heavy frost and ice this morning when I woke up!  I had to scrape it off my car before I left for work.  That is the only thing I hate about winter, but that means that it's COMING!!! :D  WOOHOO!  However, I almost broke off 3 of my nails in the process of scraping.. I was ready to be upset about it, but they are all still intact :D  Winter is the worst time for me to grow out my nails.  With the cold temperatures we commonly get, usually between -10°C to -20°C and lower (14°F to -4°F and lower for my American readers :D ), add in the windchill of a few extra degrees, my nails like to become extremely brittle and break off unexpectantly.  So be prepared for some shorter nails around here during the 6 months of winter we tend to have.

Anywho, I pulled this out of the archive because I was feeling crummy last night and though I took my Go Pink Wednesday nails off last night, I didn't have the energy to get them repainted again, and polish fumes mixed with a nauseating migraine = BAD MIX!  So I spent some quality time with my nails and gave them some desperately needed TLC :)  I slathered on the hand lotion, put on some of Sunny's Miracle Balm (lilac and lilies scent) and topped it off with some Julep Cuticle Oil.  I could hear them singing when I woke up this morning, they were so happy! :D  Then when I stepped out in the cold the started shivering and aren't so happy with me anymore :(

Today I have for you my butter LONDON Slapper polish.  You will remember that I got this from Nail Polish Canada a while back, and I did try it right away, but I'm pretty sure it was just before the Nail Challenge, so I didn't get a chance to post it.

I love this colour!  It's is perfect.  It's bold, it's creamy, it's just down-right beautiful!  I am so glad I went with Slapper as the colour in my butter LONDON kit that I ordered.

This is 2 coats of Slapper.  It's a touch more green than what shows in the picture, my camera didn't seem to want to capture the colour in all its glory :(

I highly recommend this colour, and butter LONDON polish if you don't have one yet.  However, that being said, I will never pay retail for butter LONDON which retails on Nail Polish Canada for (a whopping) $17 per bottle.  That is way to much for me to justify spending on a polish.  For that kind of money I want the polish to paint itself onto my nails!  So this may end up being my only butter LONDON polish ever, but I would be totally OK with that, look at the colour!! :D

Now, I will also include a quick review of the Nail Foundation base coat and P.D. Quick Hardware Top Coat I got in the kit as well, as I used it for this mani.

The Nail Foundation is a blush coloured base coat that dries matte on the nail.  It dried pretty quick, so I didn't have to do a whole lot of waiting before I could put the polish on.  I don't see anything wrong with this base coat, but again, it's a little pricey for me at $22 per bottle so I won't be buying it for retail.

The P.D. Quick Hardware Top Coat is ah-may-zing!  I put it on and seriously, within about 5 minutes, my nails were completely dry!  It was awesome, I would definitely recommend it to those of you who are always on the go and need their polish to dry P.D.Q..  I will be using this sparingly though, as I don't want to spend $22 on a new bottle.
What do you guys think of Slapper?  Do you have this amazing colour??


  1. Gorgeous color! That is crazy that it's so cold there already =)

    1. Haha, no it's not THAT cold here yet, that's how cold it normally is. Right now it's 7°C, feels like 3°C (45°F, feels like 37°F). But it will be that cold soon enough, and I can't wait.. there is nothing I love more than curling up on the couch in my jammies with a hot tea, a fuzzy blankie and a good book watching the snow fly outside :D

  2. mine looks much greener. More teal then yours. Love mine but this is gorgeous!

    1. Yeah, my camera wouldn't capture the colour properly, it's definitely more green/teal than what is shown in these pictures :)
