Mani Monday: My 1st Butter London & Deborah Lippmann Nail Lacquers

Hello Loves!

My current nail polish color, OPI's Gargantuan Green Grape is holding up perfectly. I am currently in my 3rd week with this polish color with very little chipping! I am in love with this color for Summer, so be sure to check out the blog I posted 2 weeks ago, when I first applied it to my nails to learn more. 

If you've been keeping up with my videos on my channel, you will have seen the new nail polish I've gotten recently. In my Online Shopping Haul video, I featured the Butter London and Deborah Lippmann nail lacquers. In today's Mani Monday, I'm going to be giving you guys a closer look at these AMAZING nail lacquers. 

Left to Right: Slapper, Cheeky Chops, and Primrose Hill Picnic

The first three nail lacquers I want to talk about are from Butter London. This trio came FREE with my ShoeMint purchase last month. I have the colors Slapper, Cheeky Chops, and Primrose Hill Picnic. I'll list each individual nail lacquer below, including its description from the Butter London website, and a link to where you can purchase it. 

Slapper Nail Lacquer
"A truly teal nail lacquer, bold and very bright."
Retail Price: $14.00 

Cheeky Chops
"'Why, no - I do not have a banana in my pocket - but I am happy to see you.' Get noticed with this bright yellow nail lacquer."
Retail Price: $14.00

Primrose Hill Picnic
"A happy, punchy, tropical, fuchsia pink nail lacquer. Will make you want to take off your shoes and run barefoot through the office."
Retail Price: $14.00

These are my very first three Butter London Nail Lacquers. I am absolutely in love with these colors, because I think they are PERFECT for Summer. I can't wait to try them out on my nails in the future.

Left to Right: Naked, Hard Rock Base & Top Coat, and Don't Tell Mama 

The next and last three nail lacquers I want to talk about are from Deborah Lippmann. I purchased these three nail lacquers from Birchbox.com, using the Birchbox Rewards points that I accrued over the last 6 months. I used 200 of my points, giving me a $20 discount on my purchase. Deborah Lippmann nail lacquer is pretty pricey, so I was ecstatic that I was able to get these three nail lacquers for $21.60. I bought the colors Naked, Don't Tell Mama, and the Hard Rock Base & Top Coat. Below, I'll list each individual nail lacquer, including its description from the website, and a link to where you can purchase it.

Naked
"clean bare beige (sheer)"
Retail Price: $16.00

Don't Tell Mama
"mood ring blue/green (shimmer) - As seen on Live with Regis and Kelly as Kelly's favorite stocking stuffer!"
Retail Price: $16.00

Hard Rock Base & Top Coat
"hydrating hardener base and top coat"
Retail Price: $20.00

These are my first purchases from Birchbox.com, as well as my first purchases from the Deborah Lippmann Collection. I am very excited to try them out for myself, because I have heard so many good things from other people. 

Be sure to check out the Online Shopping Haul that these nail lacquers were featured in if you haven't done so already!
