Happy Friday! The nice folks over at butter London sent me their Holiday 2008 sets to try out. I really like their polish. I know a lot of you feel it’s too expensive and you don’t know a lot about them, but I really believe in them and their collection. I absolutely LOVE the witty names of the colors and they definitely have some colors you will not see anywhere else. My only complaint, which I have mentioned before, is that the bottle shape is very hard to work with. For me it’s hard to get a really good grasp on the brush with that rectangle shape and then the top doesn’t want to go back on the bottle smoothly either, which creates a bit of a mess. It’s nice aesthetically, but not practical…Anyway I am only showing three of the four colors they sent because I already have and swatched one of them (Chancer). Pics taken in sun (when it came out for 10 seconds today) and with no top coat.

The Full Monty
Now don’t think of me the wrong way, I am not a Star Wars geek, but to me this color screams C3PO! I love it! It’s a really glittery awesome gold with a foil like finish. Normally I am not a *gold* person, but this is extremely flattering on fair skin (it almost has green undertones) and I will definitely be wearing it. You could do two coats, but I did three just for fun.

Diamond Geezer
Interestingly for me, I liked The Full Monty a little more which is really rare. Normally I am all about silver and not a fan of anything gold (I don’t have any gold jewelry for instance). This is a super cool silver though, again really glittery with a foil like finish. It’s just not totally original. Three coats again here.

Come To Bed Red

Come To Bed Red is very much what I would call a cherry red creme. It’s a blue based medium red and really pretty. I don’t think I would normally wear this, as I am into much darker reds, but maybe a summer pedi would be nice. However it is really Christmas-y also. This is three coats.

Vamp it up!
