Another post on some more of the shades I picked up recently from Butter London's Spring 2013 Sweetie Shop collection. I've already posted about some of the colours (Molly Coddled, Kerfuffle and Fiver) here, and managed to photograph the other three pretty pastels from the collection over the weekend.
|Butter London: Cuppa, Jasper & Fruit Machine|
In my last post, I mentioned that some of the colours from Butters Spring collection have been a bit difficult to apply and that I've had a few problems getting used to the stubbier and slightly wider than I'm used to brush. I did have a few problems with a couple of these shades too, but as I've already said, these are still some of the best pastels I've tried in terms of application and finish, and I'm really quite pleased with how well Butter's formula wears.
|Butter London Cuppa|
Cuppa - A clean, light beige nude creme. I found Cuppa the easiest to apply out of the six shades from the collection. I had some slight streaks going on with the first coat, but managed to get an even, streak finish with a second coat of colour.
|Butter London Jasper|
Jasper - A bright, buttercup yellow. Jasper is actually the first yellow polish I've tried. I've heard that yellows can be a bit difficult to apply evenly and I did have a few issues with this one. The first and second coats left me with some streaks, so I added a third coat of colour and topped it off with a coat of Seche to even everything out.
|Butter London Fruit Machine|
Fruit Machine - A bright and punchy baby pink creme. Like a few of the other shades from the collection, I found Fruit Machine to be on the thick side. I applied 2 coats of colour, but found I still had a few streaks, so added a third.

Overall, I really am pleased with all of the shades from the collection, despite the few application issues I've had with some of the colours. They're all very pretty, cheerful shades and I'd definitely recommend checking them out if pastels are your thing. I've been sporting Jasper and Cuppa on my nails over the past couple of weeks and I imagine I'll be reaching for the other chirpy colours a lot over the coming months.
