30 Days of Colour [Day 5: Green] Butter London Swinger
I'm a few hours late but that's okay. :) The first post I have to share with you today is my 'Green' fill for the 30 Days of Colour. I went with a green I've been wanting to try for ages, and also the only Butter London in my collection - Butter London Swinger. I picked this up for St Patrick's Day last year but never got around to using it.
Swinger is a full coverage green glitter with a mix of microglitter and larger hex glitters in a very slightly tinted base. As you'll see in the macro down below there's also a fair bit of gold glitter too, which I think helps to lighten the overall colour from a distance.
I used three coats (no top coat) to get this coverage but I did notice the glitter tended to separate from the base while I was using it, almost to the point where I had to re-shake each time before applying. So that was annoying.
See? Both green and gold, even if it's not as obvious from a distance! Hm! :)
Even though I don't think I'll pull this one out again before St Patrick's Day next year I still think it's a fun polish to have in my collection. This was my first try with Butter London and while I like the polish overall I'm not especially impressed with it so I don't know that I would buy more... Well, maybe one or two more if only so this bottle doesn't feel so lonely off on it's own in my Helmer. ;)
Here's a look at the other 'Green' fills:
And here's the rest of the month at a glance:
Let me know what you think! See you later today with my 'Purple' fill!
