Butter London Two Fingered Salute


Hey all!  Just a quick swatch and review today, although this one deserves a lengthier post.  It's really gorgeous but I'm afraid my picture doesn't quite capture it.  I think it needs a reswatch in sunlight to show the shimmer better.


Butter London describes this as a "muted, patinaed green crème with copper microglitter."  If you're wondering what the name means it is "similar to 'giving the bird' in the States." :P  I think the color description is pretty accurate.  I remember another blogger describing the green as a sort of Statue of Liberty green, and I think that gives you a better image of the color.  I really love the copper/pink/gold glitter as well.  It's really fine, so it actually removes easily like shimmer rather than a glitter.  The formula is just as good as every other BL shade I've tried: creamy, flowy, and hassle-free.  I'm wearing three coats with top coat here.

Mine was purchased at Nordstrom for $14 and I believe it is a Nordstrom exclusive shade.  However, it's being sold on ButterLondon.com for $15, so it may have joined the permanent line.  BL seems to have also hiked up their prices this year by a dollar. :/

Oh, and just a reminder.  If you'd like to be featured in this Friday's FFAN post, please send in your pictures by Thursday night!  I only have one entry so far, so more would be welcome. x)  Entry guidelines (here).

That's it for today!
