Butter London Two Fingered Salute

Hello girls! How have you been? Is summer in full swing where you live or are you taking the coats out for winter like myself? From what I've read on Twitter some of you are having winter weather still well into spring. I hope that, wherever you are, you're making the most of it by wearing pretty nail polish ;)

Today I want to share with you another of my Butter London beauties (I kinda fell off the face of the Earth doing these, huh?). This is the beautiful Two Fingered Salute. I saw it blogged from A Polish Addict and fell in love. So. Hard.

Butter London in unavailable where I live (which by now you probably think it's Siberia because of our crappy nail polish selection) but I got this one thanks to a kind penpal/nailmail buddy. But enough rambling, on to the polish!

Two Fingered Salute is a dusty, kinda like a seafoam, green base with tiny shimmer that shines copper, pink and gold. It's truly outstanding.

Here I think you're seeing two coats over my regular basecoat (Essence 24/7) and topcoat (Essence Better than Gel Nails Top Sealer). Sorry, it's been a while since I took these pictures heh.

I do remember that the formula was really easy to work with, like with all the butter London polishes I've tried so far. I love how it looks like some sort of subtle speckled effect, the color shifting of the shimmer adds so much to it too. Next, in the macro, you can kinda see all the sparkly colors the shimmer turns.

Butter London retails for $14 in the US, for 15ml bottles, at places like Ulta and Nordstrom. They're also cruelty-free, yay!

I hope you enjoyed this simple mani/review. Next one will be a totally different thing, as I kinda fell off the Butter London bandwagon, but I do want to finish up this series of reviews at some point, so stay tuned.
