Ever since I received an email announcing Butter's new Spring/Summer line up of "Disco Biscuit", "Bossy Boots", "Slapper", "Trout Pout", and "Knackered", I have been having nail polish dreams about finding the holo-duochrome (multichrome?) wonder "Knackered". Today - on Friday the 13th of all days - I found the entire collection including "Knackered" at Ricky's on my lunch break!!!
Butter describes "Knackered" as "a sheer, twinkling oyster shade flecked with micro glitter particles". I love every word in that description, it's so dreamy, isn't it? "Knackered" is British slang meaning exhausted. A most excellent name for a polish, however, this isn't a shade I will soon tire of!
"Knackered" was just as difficult to photograph as it is to describe in words. This beauty captures silver, blue, pink, purple, and blue-green shades depending on the lighting. Like other pearl or "oyster" duo/multichrome polishes, "Knackered" is a bit sheer - below, I used (3) coats. I LOVE how the tiny holographic flecks are so visible on the nail!
These next two pictures capture the range of colors in "Knackered":
"Knackered" simply must be seen over black! Keep reading for more swatches and "Knackered" over black.
The pink tones glow more purple in lower light over black. It's magical!
