butterLONDON Spring 2013 Sweetie Shop: Fiver, Fruit Machine, & Molly-Coddled!

I have a confession.

I pre-ordered nail polish.  

Yes, I really did.

Does that signify obsession or was that apparent a long time ago?

I knew I would have a no buy for January and February, and Nordstrom ran a Buy 2 Get 1 Free (plus free-shipping) butterLONDON sale right after Christmas, and the sale included pre-ordering the Spring Sweetie Shop 2013 polishes.

That was a no brainer for me!  I loove pastels!  I picked the three I knew I would love, but after seeing other swatches, I have a feeling I'll be picking up the other three as soon as I can afford it!

The first three I have here are: Fruit Machine, Fiver, and Molly-Coddled.


They are all delightful pastel cremes.  Each swatch has 1 coat of NYC Clear, 2 coats butterLONDON, and a coat of Seche on top for extra shine.

First, my favorite new pink - Fruit Machine:




The mint green of the group is called Fiver.  I actually spotted this on butterLONDON's instagram on one of their social media reps and I knew I'd be obsessed...I am!  The first coat was a little streaky, I must admit, but the second coat leveled things out:


I love colors that brighten the skin or make me look tanner, LOL, and I think (in my head only, maybe) that this one does the trick:




The final polish I have is called Molly-Coddled, a gorgeous lilac color:





What do you think?  Do you plan to pick up any of butterLONDON's Sweetie Shop collection?  Come back tomorrow to see my first mani using all three shades!
