I recently picked up butter London Fairy Cake from Zappos. If you’ve never ordered from Zappos, I recommend you give it a try, at least once. Their customer service is unbeatable! Anyway, on to Fairy Cake. When I first heard about Fairy Cake, I knew I had to have it.

Fairy Cake is described as a full coverage, silvery, multi-colour iridescent glitter suspended in a light grey base.

What you see here is three coats of Fairy Cake and two coats of Out the Door top coat. I really need to get something other than a fast drying top coat. Even after 2 coats of my top coat, it’s still slightly bumpy and could use a third. I do feel it’s pretty opaque in 3.

I put Fairy Cake on my accent nail and thought it looked lovely.

I still can’t get over how gorgeous Fairy Cake looks in the bottle.

Where to Buy:, Butter London, Ulta etc.

Fairy Cake is part of the Holiday 2012 Glitter Collection from Butter London.

Would I purchase again?
Yes! I love the holographic glitter and the silver color. It’s very Holiday for me. While I know that glitter can be a pain to remove (which is why I avoid it on my toes!), there are several methods you can employ to make it easier to take off. First and foremost, you can take cotton balls soaked in acetone, put them on your nails and then wrap foil around your finger tip for a few minutes before scrubbing it off. My favorite method, however, is to buy one of the nail polish remover jars with bristles inside (not a sponge), soak my fingers for a few minutes and then scrub them off on the bristles. This is what I typically do.

What do you think of Fairy Cake? Is it a must-have Holiday polish? It certainly is for me!

Butter London is cruelty-free.
