While browsing through Ulta I came across Butter London's new spring line and fell in love with Teddy Pink. It was a light pink with a little touch of purple, and it was perfect. However, I bought an orange-y pink last summer and didn't love it. First of all it's expensive, one bottle is $15! That's a little steep for me, but I'm usually willing to spend the money if the product is amazing. I found the polish is very watery and it usually takes 3 or 4 coats to get the same color as the bottle. And it chips very easily, even with a top coat. Basically, I wouldn't buy it again.
To solve my problem, I compared Teddy Girl to Essie's pinks to find a color that was similar. I found Fiji and it was just about a perfect match! I'm soo glad I decided to buy it, it's the perfect pink color and the consistency is amazing. I might even like it more than OPI (and I'm a huge fan of OPI). It's creamy and liquidy enough to make application a breeze. And I haven't had any chipping issues so far. With a price of $8, I was sold.
The picture really doesn't even do it justice, it's better in person. Anyway, I hope this helps in your nail polish endeavors! Definitely keep this color in mind for spring!
