Double Photo TestThere’s a colour cycle that I follow with nail polish. Pastels in the spring, orangey reds in the summer, neutrals in the autumn and the glitters come into play for Christmas – oh how predictable. Well there’s a new shade in town that’s bucking my seasonal rota and causing things to get a little shimmery on my tips mid-heat wave – Butter LONDON’s Bit Faker*. A polish that may induce feelings of true love upon first glance, I dub it ‘bottled glittery sand’. Flecks of gold, bronze and black lacquer on together to create a beach appropriate mani that’s just asking to be sported with a tan and taken to Ibiza. Unfortunately I’ve just been showcasing mine in the UK with pasty limbs and gigantic sweat patches, but I can confirm Bit Faker definitely gives off that ‘new shoes’ effect that may lead you to missing your tube stop through contented inspections of your nails.

£12 from Look Fantastic or at Boots and Selfridges in-store. Lets just not mention how long this took to remove, yeah?

    Love glitter nail polishes..
    Hate to remove them tho..

  • Sarah Kay

    I have this and just love the color, but you’re right, it is SO hard to take off. I even used the super harsh stuff that I use when I’ve got a gel mani and it could barely do it!

  • Makala Johnson

    I live using sparkly nail polish, especially when
    combined with regular nail polish to create an
    accent finger xx

    this looks so great! I really love that nails polish! xx

  • Celina

    Wow this looks incredible! Of course, with glittery polishes, they’re nothing but a pain in the arse to remove. I’m still tempted to try one of the Butter London glitter polishes though!
