Butter London - Stroppy

Purple Foil  

Oooh I do love a good purple.  When I was in my 20's I was obsessed with purple and red clothing (and flowers).  But now I'm older and have had my colours 'done' I can't really wear this kind of true, royal purple and I've managed to train myself out of beelining for this shade in the shops.

Stroppy is a purple foil which I thought had a touch of duochrome, but I think it's just packed with pink and blue foil shimmer.

Application was fine, it's a little thin and these swatches are 3 coats, no top coat.  Not ideal but for this colour it's worth it to me.


Stroppy was from Butter London's Summer 2014 Collection, called Lolly Brights.  I picked it up cheap from an online sale site - I think it was £4 or £5.


  1. Yowser - this is awesome purple :D I think I have one from this collection too, a blue? "Airy fairy", possibly?

    1. Yes, that sounds right, don't think I have that one


Thanks for your comment - I appreciate all of them!
