Nail of the Day 9/26/11: butter LONDON Wallis
Ok, so I guess this should technically be called a “Nail of the Weekend” post because I have been wearing this color for the past two days. I’m actually about to take it off, but I figured I should snap a photo before I whip out the cottons pads and nail polish remover.
butter LONDON’s Wallis is described as “a tarnished, metallic olive gold,” and I couldn’t agree more. This is definitely one of those love it or hate it colors, but I personally happen to love it. I think Wallis is perfect for fall and very unique. It has an olive base that changes in accordance with the lighting. In dimmer settings the “tarnished” effect is more noticeable, but in direct sunlight the gold is the shining star. I adore this polish because what you see in the bottle is what you get. Plus, the wear is outstanding!

My First Nail of the Day!
Tumblr is a crazy, confusing world to me. That being said, I’ve decided to dip my toes into this new place and make a page (almost) solely dedicated to Nail of the Day or “NOTD” posts. I’m kind of a nail polish junkie, and I’ve been known to change out my color 3-5 times a week, so I figured it would be fun - and less annoying than Twitpics- to snap a photo whenever I paint my nails. I’ll probably end up with some random posts about other stuff every now and then, but for the most part, expect nail polish…and LOTS of it!
As some of you may already know (thanks to my incessant tweets), Ulta had a buy one, get one free sale on all butter LONDON nail polishes today. butter LONDON laquers apply like a dream and are super lush, but they’re also super expensive at $14 a pop. This BOGO sale allowed me to justify buying 4 new polishes - the star of which being Blagger (shown above). I’ve been on the hunt for a creamy royal blue polish, and this is it my friends! It’s not navy, it’s not shimmery, it’s just perfect… AND right on trend for fall. Love love love!
