Butter London-Chimney Sweep

Remember that Butter London salee back in September at Ulta? Well, unfortunately I got there late and there was only a few polishes left. Chimney Sweep was one of them and since I wanted a dark grey anyway I got it. Really happy I did because I'm digging this polish.
Chimney Sweep is a dark, charcoal grey creme. That pretty much sums it up. It's that regular dark fall/winter grey that's popular this time of year. I did two thin coats and maybe I could have done a third (or made the coats a bit thicker) but I'm happy with it. The formula, while thin, flowed on nicely. This is different from my other two Butter London polishes, which gave me such a hassle that I was a bit put off by them. No problems like that here.

This dried normally. Not too fast but not too slow. Pretty damn nice. I had some Halloween stickers so I decided to put a few on. I can't konad for crap so stickers it is. I didn't put a topcoat over the stickers cause, well, I'm lazy.  But the stickers have held on even with my relentless  handwashing/cuticle creme reapplying so it's all good.

And today I finally was able to pick up the one and only Unicorn Puke! Yep, I also pre-ordered this beauty. I got bottle #4. I don't know why that makes me happy, but it does. I wanted to see what it would look like on a dark background like this, so I tried it out. I like it!

So, that's it. I'm sorry I haven't been around. It's my go-to excuse, but school really has taken up almost all of my time. About six more weeks and the semester is over. Woot!
