Butter London Molly Coddled

Hey dolls! I’m clearing the vault of old photos and I realized I never showed photos of Butter London Molly Coddled on its own. Molly Coddled is Butter London’s nod to the color of the year, radiant orchid. The formula was thin and somewhat runny, but opacity was still achieved in two coats. While I love this shade of purple,
