Swatch Spam-Butter London Wallis & Slapper

Hi there polish friends, welcome to Thursday.  One day closer to Friday, woo hoo!  It's been a pretty mild week around here, not much new going on.  I was a little bit naughty yesterday and ordered the new Urban Decay Vice 3 palette and the set of Urban Decay eyeliners.  Yea, that was more than a bit naughty!  We don't have any weekend plans yet.  I really want to go to the local orchard but that seems redundant when we have three apple trees in our yard, it seems a little too early to go picking pumpkins though.  

Today I have two more beautiful polish swatches to share with you.  I really need the nail art bug to hit me again, I would love to do some Fall nail art, maybe over the weekend.  I have two Butter London polishes to share, one that was picked up during the Ulta 21 days of beauty event over last weekend and the second that came in a mini set from the Nordstrom anniversary sale, let's get right to it.

Butter London Wallis is a polish I've heard being talked about but I had never looked it up or added it to my wishlist.  At Ulta this weekend I spotted it during the sale and knew that it was a really unique color.  I only picked up two polishes during the Butter London sale and this was one of them.  

Wallis is a tarnished medium shimmery olive and it's nothing I've ever seen before in a polish.  It's packed with shimmer but it's got a great formula and is really easy to apply and very opaque.  I really love this one and it's perfect for Fall.

Second of the two is Slapper which is an intense bright turquoise cream.  The formula on the one was buttery smooth and a breeze to apply.  I used two easy coats with topcoat below.  Again, the color on this one was fantastic.  This polish was on my lemming list for quite some time and I'm really glad to have it.  I also think it works great with my pale skin tone.

I'm quite pleased with both of these polishes, especially for having gotten both at discounted prices.  Butter London polishes are really growing on me but I will still be on the lookout for a good deal :)  What's your favorite Butter London polish?
