Hi everyone!! I'm on some kind of roll again, two holiday posts in as many days, lol. One of the coolest holiday collections this year has also been one of the quietest. Called The Illusionists, Butter London's offering boasts a relaunch of two of their classic and most loved polishes and two of my personal faves, Come To Bed Red and Union Jack Black, as well as one new creme and three deliciously pretty and transforming new overcoats. I've been excited about this collection since I saw the first press release. Call me a diehard-- I've never met a Butter I didn't like :) I've posted about the red and the black two and three times each on here already, lol, so today is all about the new shade, Bramble, and the overcoat Stardust.
Bramble is a deep, cool, blue violet creme, another non-traditional holiday color that ends up being perfect for the season, dramatic, elegant, simple. Butter London has nailed their creme formula in recent years and Bramble is indicative of that-- I used two easy, quick drying coats and one layer of topcoat. There are few things prettier in my book than a dark, glossy creme, and this one happens to be unique to my collection.
Stardust is a silver scattered holographic, nothing you haven't seen before, but different from last year's Fairy Cake in that this seems specifically made to be a topper, so the glitters are finer. It's hard to mess up on a holo topcoat formula and Stardust is as easy to apply as anything. Stardust is pretty and twinkling over Bramble, adding a festive but definitely not over the top dimension to the rich creme. I used one coat of Stardust and one layer of clear topcoat over Bramble.
Any holo is a good holo and Stardust is a fantastic way to experience the rainbow during the colder months.
Bramble and Stardust retail for $15 each. Both polishes are typical Butter London quality and if you're looking for some high end elegance for your nails this December, these two polishes are worth every penny.
