butter LONDON Rosie Lee

Since I used it to accent these flowers, I've been just waiting for the right day to glitter my nails up with a full manicure of butter LONDON Rosie Lee, and today was that day.

This is two coats of butter LONDON Rosie Lee. I started with a base of OPI My Very First Knockwurst, just in case the coverage wasn't quite fully opaque in macro mode, but it wasn't necessary at all. I was actually really impressed with how nicely dense and opaque Rosie Lee's glitter was, especially in just two coats, without getting at all lumpy or thick in the process. Once again, top marks to butter LONDON for its formula!

I really have been keeping Rosie Lee out next to my light box, waiting until the mood finally struck for me to go full pink glitter, and for all the anticipation it did not disappoint. You might notice there's almost a haze of "Captain Kirk soft light" surrounding my nails? I didn't shoot these through any filters or anything; that's just the cumulative effect of so. much. sparkle. The overall effect doesn't come anywhere near garish, though, because all this glitter is beautifully balanced by such a softly restrained shade of rosy pink. Totally smitten, absolutely love. Thank you again for such a pretty polish, Ellen!

Oh! And just to add an independent review? Completely unprompted, Husband complimented these sparkly pink nails about three times over dinner. Yay for him and yay for butter LONDON Rosie Lee!
