[butter London's Powder Room]

I only have one word for this: No.

It is the most awful nail product I have ever tried. Seriously...whoever made this hates humanity. He's probably a misogynist. It's truly God-awful. Shall I explain why? Let's do this in list form.

1) The smell
Holy shit! Seriously. It states on the packaging that it has a "baby powder scent". Baby powder to smother babies to death maybe. I think the scent-tester has a tumor in his/her olfactory system because he doesn't understand what baby powder truly smells like. Considering that this product is meant to have none of the terrible stuff that regular nail polish removers have like acetone, it smells worse than any other remover I have ever used. This is almost an act of warfare because I tried using it in an airconditioned room and felt like I was being gassed by the fashion police for mismatched nail polish. The onset of a headache was immediate which has never happened before. I'm not someone who is particularly sensitive to scents, but this was downright unbearable. The worst part? You have to wash your hands 4-5 times to get rid of the smell. Awful.

2) The feel
It left a really strange oily residue on my nails and fingers. Oddly, it also left it feeling stripped of any goodness. This is truly a demonic product. I don't know how they did it, but they condensed the worst nail polish removers in the world into one terrible product. 

3) The lie
Yes. Look at the bottle! It's so damn adorable! Why would they do this? Just put acetone in your products and stop making our lives worse with you hippie nonsense!

    1. Really! This is completely off the mark on all fronts. Truly an affront to all my senses!

      On a totally unrelated note, is your moniker a result of the movie "You've Got Mail"?

  2. Oh, entirely a coincidence! I saw that movie a long time ago but it never occurred to me that I named myself similarly to the Meg handle!
    Would you believe my blog was created 5 years ago and never posted to until now so it's been too long to understand why I opted for the corny tag but hey, a rose by any other name, right?! :P

    1. Was it 5 years ago? I had a blog back then but I lost interest after 3-4 posts and I don't even remember what it was called.
      ShopGirl is the perfect choice! It doesn't hurt that You've Got Mail is my favourite chick flick ever!

    2. If anything, the ShopGirl reference might have been to that Steve Martin book/ film starring Claire Danes. I've always wanted to read/ watch it but never got my hands on it. I hear it's quite decent.
      I believe You've Got Mail is even older than five years. It was Meg before she went overboard with all that Botox and filler. Poor Meg.

    3. Well, you've seen her mother. It was inevitable! I think You've Got Mail is closer to a decade old, back when the internet was uncommon. Man do I feel old. It's like saying you were around when Pride & Prejudice was written!
      I've not heard of the Steve Martin-Claire Danes collab. Will definitely have to check it out.

  3. I hate deceptive labellings such as this one. And 50ml is a lot of money to waste :-O

    1. Really! It's a good thing this came in a set. If I had bought it on its own I might have set Sephora on fire.
