Layering with Disco Biscuit

I purchased Butter London’s new spring shade Disco Biscuit at the weekend.  It is described as  a “tropical hot pink with an undercurrent of tiny iridescent glitter particles.” It is sheer and required at least 3 coats to gain some opacity; this sheerness gives it a jelly-like look, and makes it great for layering.

I quickly did up some combinations to share.  The layered polishes are as follows:

1. Butter Disco Biscuit (5 or 6 thin layers)
2. Barry M Raspberry
3.  Queen Collection no name – Neon pink-red
4. Queen Collection no name – Bright magenta
5. China Glaze Heli-yum
6. China Glaze Purple Panic

The photos show the nail wheel in a variety of light

Photographing with the flash on shows off the gorgeous blue shimmer.  The polishes also look most true to their actual color in the flash photos.

Close up L to R: Purple Panic, Heli-Yum, Bright Magenta, Neon Pink-Red, Raspberry, Disco Biscuit

I did not photograph the bottle but I believe that layering Disco Biscuit over a color like  Heli-yum  is closest to how it looks in the bottle.

Butter London polishes retail for $14. Find your nearest location at http://www.butterlondon.com/locations

  1. I was just looking at this in the store…I may get this and layer it with my CG Purple Panic or Pink Voltage…I think you are right, it is probably better to use it as a top coat, layered over similar colors…Thanks for this!
