Butter London - Two Fingered Salute, aka The Best Polish of the Year!


Hi guys!  Hope you all are doing well.  I've felt a bit gloomy lately.  You know how life is sometimes.  BUT I got 4 new China Glaze polishes that were on clearance at Sally's.  And all 4 are new releases.  So that's kinda awesome.  If your planning to go to Sally's soon, go today, since they are having half off their clearance items.  Its pretty sweet!


Anyways, I got this polish on Friday, and could not WAIT to show you guys.  This is definitely my favorite color of the year, its beat out this color.  This might also have fallen into my favorite of all time.  Its pretty close between this and Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air.  

This is Two Fingered Salute. Its a Nordstrom's exclusive.  I don't remember who's blog I saw this on, but I said to myself  "when I get my next paycheck, I am marching over to Nordstrom's and picking this up".  And that is exactly what I did!  I don't usually buy Butter London's except when they are on sale, but I had to have this, and I'm glad I do, cause I have nothing else like it!


The shimmer in this is more than meets the eye.  It looks copper, and that's what I thought it actually was, but no, it's more than that!  Its also gold and pink!  Basically its a duochrome shimmer!  And it is awesome!  I could not get the pink to come out an play with my camera, but you can see it in the bottle shot above.


The base color is an antique-y blue/green.  Its actually very similar to OPI's Mermaids Tears.  I actually just put the bottles next to each other, and the base color looks very similar.


I love, love, love this color!  I hope you liked my ultra large pics, I think this color deserved it.  Anyone else pick this up?

On an unrelated note, I started a new craft project.  I'm not at all a crafty person, though I really wish I was! I was looking through Etsy for a bridal bouquet for whenever our wedding is going to be and whoo whee where they expensive!  I LOVE the look of brooch bouquets, but my god, I am not spending $600 for one! That's how much my dress is!  Anyways, I've decided I'm going to make my own!  What fun it is to make one too!  I should share a pic, cause it actually looks pretty decent right now.  If it turns out decent, I'm thinking of selling on Etsy for fun!
