That's almost EXACTLY what I dreamt about! Now, where to get it. Seems all the good stuff is mail order?

THANKS for the link!

No problem! Yeah, I've never seen BB Couture in stores so mail order might be the way to go.

butter london bumster is kind of mustardy... not sure if that's along the lines of what you're looking for?

I was going to say the same thing. Also, BL has Cheeky Chops which is a creme but is more of a banana color than mustard... I haven't seen Bumster in real life but I have Cheeky Chops and loooove it.

I've never tried a mustard yellow, but I have bad luck with yellows. They're usually super sheer for some reason, so I only have like, three and don't love any of them.

Butter London Bumster looks like it might work! If I can find it. I poured over the BL display at Ulta last night and did not see this one. The display was very disorganized though. I'm a little skittish about ordering over the internet what with color accuracy on monitors being what it is.

The Cheeky Chops might be too bright for me. I've got Butter London's MacBeth on right now and that's as bright as I've ever been in my life. Gotta take this slow girls. First polish in about 20 years and I'm 49 now ;-}

Although I'm def doing the candy corn paint job for Halloween this Fall! It's a whole new world and it took me 49 years to discover it.

Am so glad this thread is here. Y'all are such an inspiration!

More than monitor color, the best way to find out if a polish is what you want is to google swatches 'polish brand + color name + swatch', and see if you can find a swatcher whose skin tone matches yours. Some colors are more flattering on different skin tones, and the way the polish looks in the bottle isn't always how it looks on the nail. They'll also usually tell you how to formula is, how many coats you need, etc.

yep, online swatches are the way to go if you can't see something in person... usually there are enough swatches out there that you can at least feel confident that you'll know what it looks like when you get it.

i always order butter london from zappos, because free shipping, woo!

I saw Knackered in the store and almost shat myself, then I came home and googled swatches and found out how sheer it is. Pass!

I have to echo this recommendation! It makes a big difference. I prefer to buy things in person, but googling swatches or even dupes gives me a good idea of what the color is like and whether I want to search for it or forget it. Also, some Macy's carry Butter London.

Zappos! well that's just peachy keen! I didn't even think to look there. DEF! Love Zappos free shipping.

also didn't know about the swatches, I've found a LOT of photos when just googling the brands+color name.

thanks guys!

Knackered is awesome though, especially if you layer it over a blue toned dark or medium grey like Zoya Kelly or Caitlin.

Looks like Sephora has two glassy/crystal type files, big diff in price. Not sure what the actual quality difference is though:

http://www.sephora.com/crystal-nail-fil ... Id=1393073

http://www.sephora.com/glass-nail-files ... uId=649467

Anyone own one of these two and can vouch for it?

I own 4 or 5 of the $8 Sephora brand ones. I have managed to lose 4 or 5 of the Sephra brand ones.

I really miss it but won't buy another. You can wash them off and then sterilize in the dishwasher. I need to be gentle with my nails and the grit on these is perfect; I really like them.

Before I started losing them, they were very economical too because I went over a year without having o buy nail files.

Oh, whoa. $3. Maybe they are replacing with the fancier one? Stock up! Now I'm tempted. Darn it. But I need to find mine. I only had one in my purse, so what the fizzle did the others go?!

Yeah, that's all I could think regarding the price difference, was they're phasing the one out and bring in the fancy new case ones.

I have the second one. It's ok and I love the idea of glass nail files but in practice I find the grit too soft to be of much use. I tend to just use good disposables (that I hang on to for some time when using them on just myself). I'm really choosy with my nail-type products and used to a low grit. You may love it. For $3 you can probs afford to find out. I like the case for the first one. Maybe that accounts for the price difference?

I was at Lane Bryant last night and noticed they now sell nail polish under the Cacique brand. Maybe this isn't new news? But I also am not finding any info on who private labels this for them or if it's vegan/cruelty free. Anyone know? I'll ask them via twitter but thought I'd ask here as well. Thanks!

I ended up passing on this promo too. I already have the pinterest trio and I still want Carly and Rory but I can wait on those. I'm just about ready to place my first Diamond Cosmetics order and am using $ for that. So excited, I'm getting every dark blue they have.

Speaking of orange...have Myrta on my toes and am doing a mani tonight w/ Spoiled Vitamin C.
