I was planning to start a series of greens on Friday since I LOVE GREEN and St. Patrick's Day is one month away, but...this happened:
This beauty, this lovely, taupe-y creation is Butter London's All Hail The Queen (or McQueen, which, personally, I thought was much cooler)
I already had China Glaze Four Leaf Clover out and ready to go when I saw the late evening sunlight hitting the holographic particles in All Hail The Queen just right and I decided that one does not spend twice the usual amount they usually spend on a nail polish to let it sit for weeks before swatching it. I told my friend today that this was the first of many signs that I was growing up; choosing a neutral over a bright green would have never happened a few years ago.
This is the colour that I thought it would be, seeing the pictures on other people's blogs, but I think the colour in the second picture is the most accurate. It turned out darker than I thought it would, but I like it better. I think if it were any lighter it would be Unattractive Mannequinhandsville.
The formula was gorgeous: this is three thin coats. Two would have been enough, but there was a bald spot on my pinky (human error-related) and I decided to add an extra coat to all the nails to make it as smooth as possible.
