butter LONDON Wallis & Bluey for Fall 2011 Swatches, Photos & Review
butter LONDON’s fall 2011 collection includes both Wallis & Bluey, two colors who nearly escaped my grasp!
Wallis is actually a color I had in my online shopping cart a few weeks ago at Nordstrom, but then I browsed around too long and it sold out in the meanwhile! That’s what I get for lollygagging. But last weekend I was in Nordstrom and going down the escalator I saw right at the landing a display of butter LONDON polish. Good planning on their part because there was no way I could just walk by without looking. I saw Wallis and grabbed it fast! Then I saw Bluey and decided she was worth it as well.
Wallis is an antique looking metallic olive green color with intense gold and green shimmer. INTENSE! This baby is so gold and so green and it positively glows. It’s stunning. The most stunning green I’ve seen in awhile in fact!
The formula was really good, it was smooth and creamy and covered completely in just two coats.
Bluey is a medium deep metallic blue/green. What they call a “peacock” color. In the bottle you can pick up the green a little more than on the nail I think. On the nails it translates mostly to a metallic blue with blue shimmer and a little green. It’s a nice color, but I was honestly hoping for something deeper and more interesting. This is one where I love it in the bottle, but not as much on the nail.
The formula was more sheer than Wallis for sure. I needed three coats to completely cover with this one.
