butter LONDON Poole

If there's a shade of nail polish I can not resist it's a soft, minty teal, so the minute I first saw it swatched, butter LONDON Poole went straight to the wish list. Yes, I already have minty teals in the double-digits, and no, I do not care. I want them all.

From the Summer Holiday 2013 Collection, butter LONDON Poole is just the sort of colour that reduces me to ooey-gooey bits. This Tiffany-style teal is a bit dustier, and just a touch greener, than China Glaze For Audrey, and it's absolutely perfect for spring and summer.

Formula-wise, it's pastel enough to drag a bit on the first coat--and on the second too, if you don't let the first dry enough or go back over the same spot too much--so my compulsive customary three coats were needed. Trying to avoid that dragging I left it with a little self-leveling to do, and it didn't exactly embrace the challenge. This is the second time I've worn Poole and had the same experience. Every other review I've seen, though, raves about Poole's typically-bL, flawless and easy formula, so I'm well prepared to accept my batch/bottle might not be indicative.
