I’m back!

Hello, folks!  It’s been quite a while since I have done a blog post but, rest assured, I have been painting my nails and photographing.  With any luck, most of it will make it to this blog and your eyes!  🙂

Well, a couple weeks ago Ulta had an AMAZING buy one get one free sale on butter LONDON polish (OMG I know!!!) so I had to run down and get 4 HAHA.  Did anyone else get that email and either go immediately to their site or physically run to the store?  I did both!  The colors I chose include two new colors, Trustafarian and Dodgy Barnett, from the Autumn/Winger Bespoke collection plus The Black Knight and All Hail the Queen. 

butter LONDON Trustafarian

This color is beautiful, a seafoam or sage green (as described on the website) with a beautiful holographic effect.  I used three coats for the photos below, but I could have gotten away with two.  As with most holographic polishes (at least all I’ve used), indoor light really does not do it justice.  I think this is my new favorite polish.  🙂

butter LONDON Dodgy Barnett

This color is a great, silvery grey with another great holographic effect.  I haven’t had the chance to put this one on yet, but I am sure it will be beautiful and easy when I do!

butter LONDON All Hail the Queen

This color is what I would call a …… beige-ish light brown?  Yeah, that’s it.  What I didn’t really notice in the bottle is that it also has a nice holographic shimmer to it in the right light.  It is not really as dark as it appears in the photo below, and seems it would look best with 3 coats (2 shown below).

This color is a black jelly base with a dense multicolor glitter.  With 2 coats as shown below, or one more if you like, this would cover beautifully.  I will be interested to try a single layer over a lighter color to add some oomph without being jet black.  We’ll see…

China GlazeBlonde Bombshell over Champagne Bubbles

This manicure used a base of China Glaze’s Champagne Bubbles, which is a lovely gold shimmer with with sparse gold glitter thrown in to resemble the bubbles in a glass of champagne.  I really love it, and decided to add Blonde Bombshell on alternate nails, to kick it up a notch!  I hope you like it as much as I did.  🙂

Well, that’s it for today.  I hope you all are enjoying your weekends!  The weather here is turning fall-ish (LOVE IT!!!!!) and I can’t wait as they are calling for highs in the 60s week after next.  <squealing with joy>

I hope you all have a great Sunday evening and a good week coming.  As always, thanks for reading!
