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.
