Good morning and Happy Sunday!! This is it, folks, I'm throwing in the towel. I've gotten myself to Day 9 and honestly, that pleases me enough, considering I hadn't a plan past Day 6 when I started.
So I was destashing yesterday and I came across my first Butter London polish, British Racing Green. This is an actual thing, this shade. Per Wikipedia, it "takes its name from the green international motor racing colour of the United Kingdom." Indeed, I can see this being a smashing (lololol XD) car color. I know this polish was something of a darling of this bourgeoning community when it was released (2010, I want to say?). I bought it in 2011, when all I was painting were my toesies. It's always been very much a Christmas color to me, though, and I somehow let it get lost amongst so many new finds. Destashing is good for a number of things.
Shimmers can be both practical and ornamental, as they somehow seem to help certain creme based colors apply a little easier. Such is the case in British Racing Green. I know I sing the praises of Butter's formula as far as recent releases are concerned but this classic gem also has an impeccable formula. In the bottle, blue and fuschia shimmers are apparent in a hunter green creme base. On the nail, silvery green shimmers are just a touch above subtly visible. It's a lovely and universally flattering shade-- usually, greens with this much blue tint bring out all the red in my skin but hunter shades contain enough yellow to balance out any redness. I used two easy coats of color and one layer of topcoat.
So, guys and gals, I leave you with a Merry Christmas since holiday festivities are about to kick into high gear around here. Be safe, don't stress, love, and be loved. See you on the flip side ♥♥
