Taupe-tastic Tuesday: Butter London All Hail The Queen

Taupe-tastic Tuesday is upon us again.  Thank goodness!  I hate that I had to skip last week but I had a lot on my plate that I wanted to show you and put it off for a week.  This week’s taupe is Butter London All Hail The Queen.

This is a GORGEOUS nail polish.  Butter London describes it as an opaque, holographic beige polish.  It is quite beige-y but I still think of it as a lovely taupe.  I would describe it as a beige-y taupe base with very, very muted duo-chrome shimmer.  The shimmer I pick up is pinky-purple.  

Of course, same as yesterday’s Manic(ure) Monday post, the sun wasn’t shining and rain filled my backyard but I did best I could for you.  You can see that the shimmer looks sort of silvery but in the right lighting it turns a very pretty iridescent type of shimmer.

As for the formula, it is amazing.  It is very thin but completely buildable.  The mani here was accomplished in 3 coats.  Each layer dried SUPER fast and never got goopy.  I didn’t use a base coat or a top coat.  The polish dried to an even, shiny, PERFECT finish.  This polish gets two thumbs up and a high five.  I haven’t liked a single Butter London nail polish as much as I LOVE this one.  It isn’t fussy and it is gorgeous.

I got this polish in a set from Coterie.com.  Coterie is a website that sells bundles of high-end, desirable products at a low price.  They just opened their internet doors yesterday so if you go and take a peek there may still be some awesome goodies from Butter London and Kevyn Aucoin available.
