butter LONDON - Knackered over Essie Fair Game
Knackered is a somewhat sheer purple to green duochrome metallic with silver holo micro glitter. I decided to layer it over Essie Fair Game because it didn't seem like it'd be easily opaque on its own (it'd probably take 3-4 coats to be fully opaque). Plus, at $14 for .4oz (11mL) of polish, I'd like to conserve it. Essie Fair Game is kind of a gunmetal blue/grey shimmer and I used one coat under two coats of Knackered. The edges in person look a tiny bit more green than in the pics above.
The thing I love about this polish is that in low light the duochrome really stands out, and in bright sunlight the holo glitter brings it to life. Luckily, the glitter doesn't seem to make the metallic finish look too lumpy.
This picture in artificial light shows off the metallic finish and pretty green to purple duochrome depth nicely:
Knackered is a part of butter LONDON's spring/summer 2012 collection and is available at Ulta and the butter LONDON website. I also got Disco Biscuit which I'll be showing soon as well!
