Butter London Holiday Glitter Trio Set 2

Hello, Everyone!


Hope your weeks are off to an amazing start! The semester is just gearing up again. I've been  doing all the preparations necessary to start my thesis research...and watching a marathon of Breaking Bad episodes with my husband on Netflix. We watched seasons 1-4 in a week. You may ask yourself how is that possible? Well, the show is amazing! Some of the cliffhangers forced us to stay up and watch more! As promised I have swatches of the second butter LONDON Holiday Glitter Trio Set!



L to R: Rosie Lee, Fairy Cake, Black Knight

Rosie Lee is, as butter LONDON describes it, "a parade of pale pink glitter" in a clear base. The way this shines in the light is gorgeous! The formula on this one was somewhat thick, which I kind of expected. It also took 3 coats to reach this opacity. The texture was rough until top coat was added. Rosie Lee would be perfect for layering.

 Fairy Cake is filled with both silver and hologram glitters all in a silvery/light grey base. I absolutely love the shine! I could not stop looking at my nails. The coverage was a lot better than Rosie Lee mostly because Fairy Cake has the colored base. However, it still took 3 coats to reach this opacity. It was a bit thick but still easy to work with.

Black Knight...where do I even begin? This was my favorite of the bunch. In this black base there is tons of microglitter! While there is also black and silver microglitter, the pink and blue microglitter specifically mix to make a beautiful nebulous purple effect. I needed just 2 coats to reach this opacity. The formula was a dream. 




Overall, I think butter LONDON did a great job with these! Hope you all enjoyed this post! Do you have a favorite among the three? 教えてください , in other words, let me know, comment! Be sure to let me know what you would like to see more of
