Ahh, this has been a really fabulous off day for me. I got to take some swatch shots of an amazing polish Ben picked out for me (I’ll be sharing it Friday, truly stunning goodies on the way!), take a nap like the lazy girl I am, and do a good bit of reading. I also caught up on TV shows and just generally had a nice quiet Wednesday. I’m really trying to get the most out of relaxing before we shift into Black Friday mode at work!
As a reminder, today is the last day for the Butter London Friends and Family sale with 30% off and free shipping on orders over $75. Go to the website and pick up your favorites using the code FRIENDS12 at checkout to take advantage of it, pronto! I finally placed my order today after shaving off a couple of polishes that I felt I could wait a little longer for, but I was sure to snatch up that stunning holo online exclusive, Fishwife. Can’t wait to have it here, I’ve been waiting a good bit for that one!
In honor of that lovely sale, I’m sharing another shade from my favorite brand. Butter London Shag is part of the Fall/Winter 2012 collection, and it’s a rich warm orange-tinted metallic burgundy, as the website describes. Fallen autumn leaves is also used, which I agree with completely! But somehow in my weird little brain, the name and color makes me think of that plush, soft carpet… Mmm. I got the giggles when I first saw news of this polish over the name, loving the scandal of it all and then completely taken by the color. I’m pretty sure even Ben was impressed with this one when I was drooling over the swatches online! One again, the Butter London formula does NOT disappoint. It flowed easily and smoothly, giving great coverage with a great finish. For the swatches below I used one coat of Seche Clear, two coats of Butter London Shag, and one coat of Seche Vite.
In the shade (these are my favorites)…
And in the sun!
Once again, Butter London gets rave reviews from me! I’m loving this color and can’t seem to get enough of their shades… Hence the box of goodies that should be on their way to me soon, haha! Don’t forget to swing by the website and pick some new beauties up for yourself, sales are a great time to get the ones you’ve been waiting to buy or pondering. You’ve still got a few more hours! If you get some, be sure and tell me what made it into your shopping cart, I love to share the Butter London goodness. ♥
AND AND AND… Friday I’m really excited because it’s another Dollish Polish restock day and I can finally try to get my hands on It’s Bigger on the Inside. I am OBSESSED with Doctor Who, so I’m going to give you a nice little fan video a friend showed me about Rose and the Doctor (thanks Beth!). Swooooon! I swear, I’ll die if I miss out on this polish. :( Wish me luck, guys!
“If I could fall into the sky,
Do you think time would pass me by?”
Edited: Just wanted to say I just checked on facebook and found out that the sale has been extended to the 11th. Hooray!
