Now that Fall is upon us, I’ve been gathering all my fall shades in my nail polishes and my lipsticks. I often find myself asking “What color lipstick should I wear?” For those of you who don’t know, I normally put an outfit together based on the lip color that I choose. Since we’re also around the corner from Halloween, I though that I could throw in some Fall/Halloween colors into my outfits without looking like a hot mess.
Lady Danger has a reddish orange tone to it that gives you that sexy look while making it perfect for the Fall/Halloween theme with the orange tint that you get from it. You can easily pair this with neutral colors so that your outfit and accessories are not competing with each other.
I also paired it with a beautiful orange red/orange shade nail polish from e.l.f. cosmetics called Mango Madness. This shade of nail polish is a great alternative from the usual black nail polish (not that black nail polish isn’t sexy) that we use for Halloween but it doesn’t hurt to change it up a little with some vibrancy.

If you’ve read my last blog you’ll find that I’m starting to shift my nail polish collection into more long wearing nail polishes so as to save money in the long run. I recently un-boxed my butter London Glitz and Glam Set to find that there are three more polishes, a lippy and an eyeliner. That was a pleasant surprise that I got for making a purchase over $50.
There’s a new deal going on right now with a $50 purchase. Snag it here with promo CATWALKREADY. This deal has a $62 value so jump on it now while supplies last.
It was definitely worth it as I can say I got double the products for the price of one. This girl is not complaining!
Of course there’s not better way to show off my lipstick for the day than with a selfie. I haven’t actually worn the Snog liquid lipstick that came in the Glam Set yet because I want to save that for another post but for this particular day I chose to wear Teddy Boy Lip Crayon by butter London because it’s easily becoming my go to when I’m having a hard time finding a matching lipstick.
I did wear a top coat of the Lucy in the Sky over one of my other nail polished and I did like the finish of it. This photo was also taken like six days after I put it one because I wanted to see how long it lasted and it did not disappoint.

I’m that girl who prefer to do her own nails instead of spending money at the nail salon but what really irritates me is when I spend all that time painting and perfecting my nails only to have them chip after like the first hour.
Read on if you’ve been there.
It’s coming to that point where I don’t have time to be doing over my nails and because I’m cost conscious, I’m not spending unnecessary money if I don’t have to because, well you know, that’s reserved my makeup.
So since I’ve been into a Butter London phase I decided to try their Nail Lacquer in the shade Cotton Buds which is a white nail polish. I wore this nail polish for like 10 days straight and it only had like minor chips after like day 7. Since my dishwasher is broken, it was the perfect time for me to test it out and I have to say that it lasted through scrubbing of those pots and pans. That would have never happened with my current nail polish collection. It is highly pigmented but I did apply a couple coats because I wanted to build layers to make it last longer. You probably only need one coat but I preferred two.
The only disadvantage to this nail polish I would say is the price retailing at $15.00.
Normally, I wait for nail polishes to go on sale for like $1.00 but never spend more than $3.50, however, I find that I have a bunch of cheap nail polishes that chip easily so I decided to invest in one that will give me a little bit more chip free longevity. In the long run it made more sense for me economically and honestly there are a lot more health benefits to this nail polish.
“It promotes strong, healthy nails – Contains Hydrolyzed Silk, Horsetail Extract, Vitamins B, C, and E”
“butter LONDON does not add Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, or TPHP to any of its nail product formulas.”
Why this nail polish saved me time and money?
$15 sounds like a lot but it does last longer than the nail polishes that I currently have. Instead of buying 15 nail polishes for a dollar that lasts for 5 minutes on your nails.
I would rather invest in a good nail polish that will last me longer and dry faster so that I can get on with my life.
I agree that initially $15 is quite a lot to spend especially on a nail polish but it’s way cheaper in the long run than spending money to go to the nail shop every week. chemicals
