Butter London Victoriana**EDIT: I was trying to schedule this post for 7:30 tonight since I'll be out and that's around when I usually post, but I hit "Publish Post" out of habit and now I can't un-publish it. So. We'll just be a little off-kilter today. That is all.**
Okay, I forgot the bottle shot for this one too, but I promise this is the last one. Fo realz. Tomorrow totally has a bottle shot.
Anyway, today I've got Butter London *cough cough Seattle* Victoriana.
I tried to get away with one thick coat, but as you can see there are a billion bald spots. They were less visible in real life, but that teaches me my lesson. *for shaaame, for shame* Anywho, the formula was okay but the brush was pretty thin and floppy. Kind of like trying to paint your nails with a sardine, or an earthworm. Ew. That would not be fun.
The color is sort of an antiquey looking teal with tooons of silver microglitter. At first I was pretty disappointed because I didn't like it as much as when I had seen it in swatches online. but the more I looked at it, the more it grew on me. It has this very chic, vintage look to it. I like it, but for $14 a pop the brush should be better. I might try other BLs but not for a while anyway, since they are muy caro (very expensive, I've gotta exercise my Spanish muscle every once and a while just in case I ever go to Spain) and I am on a no-buy for an undetermined amount of time.
You may remember that my last no buy ended horribly. Well, this is going to be a different story. I am going to make my last purchase today (the Grape Set Match grand slam duo) and then I am FINITO. I'm going to deposit all of my spending money in the bank right after that so I literally cannot buy anything. I'm saving up for the China Glaze holiday collection because it looks flipping awesome. If I could give up junk food for Lent (which I did, quite successfully) then I can do this. I CAN DO THIS.
