Fishwife

I bought this gorgeous butter London polish while I was in New York last month. It's called 'Fishwife'. Not the most attractive name, but the shade is a real grower.
It's holographic, so naturally I was instantly attracted to it anyway, but the shade of pale seafoam green is really unusual anyway, and mixed with a hint of holo, I think it makes it a really interesting colour, and perfect for spring, but not your a-typical mint green...




This kind of shade is the reason I love butter London polishes. The brand really makes an effort to be unique and create original shades.


I picked this up in Henry Bendel (possibly my favourite shop in the world!) but you can pick them up from the Butter London Website, and some larger Boots stores in the UK, for £10 ($15 in the US)

  33. Hi Fleur!
    I was just wondering what it is like to remove from your nails as I love holographic, glittery nails, but I have tried a few brands and they can sometimes be a pain to remove the glitter. Thanks!

  75. This colour is amazing! We're usually wary of trying lighter colours- especially blue- out because they can tend to be quite runny and need a good few coats to look like they do in the bottle, but this is really good!
    Glad you did this post, may have to try it out!
