Butter London - Disco Biscuit and some exciting news!


Good morning guys!  I will leave the "exciting news" to the end of the post so I can show you my recent BL purchase!  I've wanted this polish since it first came out.  BUT, since I'm cheap when it comes to polish, I rarely buy Butter London's. But with the Ulta BOGO and the Coterie deal I went from 4 BL's to 13!


So this is Disco Biscuit.  This polish is so HOT!  If you follow me on Instagram (glitter_n_unicorns) you would have seen this last night.


I was actually surprised with this polish.  Its pretty sheer, so I applied 3 coats, but what really surprised me was it dries super gritty.  I wouldn't have thought the micro glitter in it would make it that gritty, but it required 2 coats of top coat to smooth it out.


What was also surprising is there is more than just the purple glitter in there.  I also saw pink, and maybe green/gold, but they definitely aren't as predominant as the purple glitter is.




Ugg....so pretty!  My nails are super duper long now, and while I like them long (since I've never had healthy, long nails before), I always find when they are long, I want them short, or vice versa! LOL.

So my exciting news is I finally have the box checked off for the wedding planning.  I have a wedding dress! I actually had a really good experience.  I went into the whole process complaining to my mom that I would hate it.  I'm a pretty picky person, and I had absolutely NO idea what would look good on me.  

We actually went to this little boutique close to our house, and got such a rude reaction, that the whole thing made me feel super uncomfortable (being uncomfortable having everything be about me anyway, gave me major anxiety).  The woman was very rude, and made me feel very unwanted, we just walked out.

That's when we went to David's Bridal.  Honestly, I was not expecting much, but it was going to be a good get my feet wet kind of experience.  Brittany was the name of my consultant, and she was super friendly and sweet.  She could tell the whole thing made me feel uncomfortable.  I also made her job nearly impossible with the fact that I had no info about a wedding.  The only info I had for her was that I really liked lace dresses.

She pulled 4 or 5 dresses (I honestly don't remember because I love the one I chose that much) for me.  One stood out to me because I absolutely loved the color.  She put me in my favorite first, and she basically was done....I did not want to put anything else on.  She worked MAGIC with her little clippy things cause my god did I look amazing! lol!  I am not a skinny girl, while I wouldn't consider myself big, I do have some chunk in my belly area, along with lotsa junk in my trunk.  I'm also short with short legs, so I think that makes me look chunkier than I am as well.  Well this dress flatters all my good areas, and keeps my little muffin top in place.  I could not believe how small my waist was!

Brittany wanted me to explore other options so she put me in 3 or 4 other dresses.  I actually did like the wild card she threw in there which was a strapless.  It was actually very flattering (even though I said I wouldn't like a strapless).  But Brittany wanted to see how I felt about the first dress.  And sure enough, yup, it was the dress for me.  When Brittany walked away to get a measuring tape, I had told my mom I was glad I hadn't cried (she cried when she saw me in it for the first time....but I kinda expected it being the only daughter).  But then Brittany started talking about the wedding, and blah, blah, blah, and yup....started crying!  I also started make all the other ladies there start crying, lol.

So anyways, onto the dress.  The funny thing is, after we bought the dress, and went out to lunch, I had complained that I didn't get a picture of it, so I started to look for it online.  I could not believe it when I saw the picture.  My mom had sent me a link to this dress MONTHS ago, and its the only link she sent.  I couldn't believe it.  Here it is.  Believe me when I say this is absolutely stunning in person.  The pictures do not do it justice.  One of the things that sold me on it was the color.  I went with the color I tried on in the store which is was a champagne slip with the ivory lace.  The contrast is absolutely gorgeous.  Its also beaded all over that adds sparkle....not bling which I love.  The back is also gorgeous, and I love the little train.  I absolutely love it....its exactly what I wanted.

I have to laugh, when she came back with the size, it made me feel very va-va-voom.  I'm apparently a size 9 in the chest, size 8 in my waist and a size 10 in my hips....now if I was only taller, lol!  Now all we need to do is figure out what we are doing for a wedding, lol!!

Thanks for sticking around with this long post, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

  3. What a gorgeous nail polish, that is so much fun! And congratulations on finding your dress! My bff got engaged and just for fun, she and I went to a bridal salon near where I live...It was the second place she'd ever looked and she thought she was a long ways away from finding her gown. Well, she found her dress! It was probably the 4th dress she'd ever tried on, and it is the only thing wedding-related that she has planned so far! Good luck on the rest of your planning!

  13. I was honestly surprised that I loved the first dress I tried on. I went in with pretty low expectations, and was pleasantly surprised! Its at least the first step to actually trying to figure out what to do.
