Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!  Life has been very busy and very crazy, but it’s been a lot of fun.  I’ve been spending time with friends, a great deal of it at a really chill coffee house in town.  This is great and awesome, but it also means I’m not home as much to write blog posts.  I’m thinking I may really be getting back to my routine, though…  I’m trying…  I really am!

I wanted to let you all know that there is a sale on my favorite store brand, Butter London!  Just use the FRIENDS12 code when checking out through butterlondon.com and you’ll receive 30% off.  This is a great time to snatch up online or certain store exclusives, so be sure and take advantage of it.  This sale ends Wednesday!  To pump up the Butter London loving, I’m bringing you one of their fabulous shades today.  Butter London Knees Up is a dramatic shimmering red metallic that seems to glow whenever any light hits it.  It’s also amusing because this color seems fitting for what comes to mind when I hear “knees up”.  But rest assured, it’s not a scandalous reference to late night activities with your loved one!  “Knees up” is just British slang for “a drunken party”, according to the Butter London dictionary!  My best friend, Drea, loved this one long before I did.  For some reason I just couldn’t quite get it, though I thought it was pretty.  But really, what was so crazy-insane-I-must-own-this special about Knees Up?  I have to say, I think it’s that stunning glow it has.  Mix that in with Butter London’s amazing formula and you’ve got a winner!  I had no issues with application, it was an absolute dream to work with.  For the swatches below, I used one coat of Seche Clear, two coats of Butter London Knees Up, and one coat of Seche Vite for that high gloss look.

In the shade…
And here’s where it gets magical, the sun shots!  I took so very many, and managed to narrow it down to six pictures.  I know it’s a bit of overkill, but I love watching this color at every angle and wanted to share the amazingness without skimping out!
I love how this polish gives off the look of a velveteen fabric, soft and rich and glowing…  It’s a beautiful deep red and perfect for the upcoming holiday season.  Yes, I know it’s a bit early for Christmas talk but when you work retail, Thanksgiving isn’t really a holiday…  It’s just that day where you sleep odd hours so you can go to your shift for the midnight opening of Black Friday.  Anyways, I’ll cut away my bitter complaints and go dig through the Butter London website to try and narrow down my choices for the sale!  Be sure and let me know what you pick up, I’d love to hear what your favorites are. ♥
