butter LONDON Bit Faker

I had all these plans to do a series of New Year's Eve nail art ideas, but then Christmas came, and Husband and I discovered an urgent need to be lazy for a couple of days and accomplish nothing. It was glorious. I did spare just a little time, though, for some thought about what my hands might wear for New Year's Eve, and while I've decided to go with nail art after all, I also gave real consideration to butter LONDON Bit Faker.

From butter LONDON's summer 2013 collection, Bit Faker is a rich, copper glitter dense enough to be worn alone. Even with a somewhat thin first coat it's sufficient for daily wear at two, but I did my customary three here for the camera. And while it's worth mentioning that it's top-coat-thirsty, it isn't any more so than other similar glitter polishes.

I thought of butter LONDON Bit Faker as a fun choice for New Year's Eve because while it's all kinds of bright and rich and sparkling, the copper-brown colour isn't as overtly "New Year's" as gold or silver. And then I swung back towards the overt end of the scale instead, but I still loved wearing this awesome glitter!

By the way, if you look at other swatches of butter LONDON Bit Faker online, you'll probably see a huge range of differences in colour. I've seen everywhere from "old penny" brown to a nearly golden bronze and everything in-between. Skin tone and lighting and all that stuff make a big difference when you look at Bit Faker. But given that a "bit faker" is someone who counterfeits coins, I think it's safe to say this complex copper looks like ground-up, sparkling pennies.
