My third offering from my recent Butter London purchases is All Hail the Queen, a scattered holographic polish in a taupe/beige colour. For this swatch I used three thin coats to get opaque and like the other polishes I have, I found the formula agreeable. This particular polish also dried pretty quickly which is always a bonus!
The only thing about this, was that in the bottle in certain lights there is a definite pink flash that is nowhere to be seen on the nail. I tried rolling the bottle to see if it just needed a thorough mix but it was still there, you can see it slightly in the photo (in sunlight) below:
I was hoping that it would have a pink flash to this and be slightly duochrome, (oh my, could you imagine a holographic duochrome?), but as you will see below NO.
In natural light, no flash:
Under my warm tone bright kitchen spotlight, it appears a darker brown colour and very shimmery:
The polish is very glossy and I didn't use a topcoat at all. In these following sunlit photo's you can see the holographic shimmer on the slightly out of focus nails:
Due to the subtle scattered holographic finish of this polish I think I would go so far to say that, along with its neutral colour, it would work as an office friendly polish.
My last Butter London polish is Black Knight which is just lovely!
I hope you have liked the Butter ones so far and look forward to the next one. xxx
