butter LONDON – Branwen’s Feather

 

Today’s polish is from butter LONDON and it’s called Branwen’s Feather. It’s a lovely deep purple/aubergine that has a subtle silver and bluish shimmer.  For this manicure I used Seche Rebuild as a base, two coats of polish and one layer of Cult Nails Wicked Fast on top.  It dries to a nice shine on its own, though, and does offer full coverage in two coats.  Application and drying time were good, this definitely not a runny or thick, clumpy polish.

Caroline by Julep is a deep vampy brick/ burgundy color that appears almost black in the bottle and on the nail in certain light, or a lack thereof. This is a lovely dark color, like so many I am drawn to recently.  In the right light, as I hope you can see from my photographs, it really comes to life with an amazing shimmery sparkle.  This one came in my Julep It Girl box for October(?), and it quickly became one I knew I would REALLY enjoy!  I’ve even noticed that there are a couple shades I have that are pretty close and will have to do a comparison before long with SquareHue‘s Dear John from the February box and Sinful Color‘s Rich at Heart.

Here’s a nice close-up of this color on the nail using a flash.  There is both a shimmer and an almost glittery sparkle that I really love about this color.
