Layering with Butter London's Knackered

Part of my new acquisition is Butter London's Knackered.

It's a beautiful true duochrome with holographic glitter in it that is a must have for layering. I personally didn't like it on my bare nails and was going to give it away. But then I layered it over black and was really impressed.

Of course I can't capture the duochrome in today's lighting- I'm stuck inside because of Hurricane Sandy! But you can see it in the bottle at the very least. I also can't really think of a true dupe of Knackered which is great considering I feel like so many colors this fall have had several repeats.

Forgive the chipping- I didn't use Seche Vite for this and that's the only top coat that prevents chips the day after a manicure is done for me.


It's been a roller coaster of a ride the past month and a half but I've FINALLY settled into my new place. I've been here for a while, but didn't want to establish a posting schedule again until I got everything in the right place, including my nail polish. It also took my landlord an ungodly amount of time to get everything in proper order.

Well, that's not true. My collection is somewhat still scattered throughout several boxes I have yet to unpack.

I started a new position, which I mentioned- I've already been promoted twice. First to full time, then to a higher position within the company. Getting all my training out of the way, I've worked a cumulative of 55+ hours each week for the past month and a half.

But I've also been expanding my collection. I've accumulated a total of 21 new bottles, which will be indicated in my current collection page in bold. I also have a manicure that I'll be posting very soon!

But the point is- I'm back.
