Butter London 'Sweetie Shop' Collection | Event

I was recently invited along to the gorgeous Butter London 'Sweetie Shop' event, in Avoca. Butter London are a popular trend-driven beauty brand, famous for their nail polishes and instantly recognisable bottles. Their collection for Spring 2013 is called 'Sweetie Shop'; 6 pastel shades inspired by the 50s and all things Spring! The event itself was so beautiful; candyfloss, Easter sweets and cupcakes were scattered around - matching the pretty pastel colours of the polishes themselves. I was in my element! Along with my Nana, who was a killer sweet tooth.
I was lucky enough to receive a manicure on the night, using 5 of the 6 polishes as I couldn't choose just one! Nail polishes rarely last more than a day on me, so I was pleasantly surprised to see that the polishes lasted me a whopping 3 days after I had them applied at the event. Cuppa and Fiver are my personal favourites from the collection, as they're both such unusual yet wearable shades for Spring - I received both in my goodie bag luckily! The polishes themselves are fantastic; creamy, chip-resistant and glossy. They do need 2-3 coats, for a perfect opaque finish. Butter London polishes are available in Avoca, for €15 each. 
(L-R) Jasper, Kerfuffle, Fiver, Fruit Machine, Molly Coddled and Cuppa.

  11. Am lusting after that baby pink shade so bad right now! And I love a manicure with different colours for every finger. Does it last well enough, do you think?

    p.s. Hullo, I found your blog via a post on boards.ie, am a student make up artist based in cavan looking for other make up peeps to chat to, and also blind as a bat!
    Tried contact lenses out for the first time last week-and horror of horrors one broke into bits in my eye at the trial and i had the optician picking at my eyeball under a microscope trying to get the bits out.
    Am right now traumatised by them, threw my box of lenses at the back of a drawer as soon as I got home
    have the trusty glasses on. Not brave enough to try them anytime soon! Figured as a fellow blind one you'd understand :)
