Butter London Two Fingered Salute

Happy Sunday, girls.  I hope that all my East Coast readers (and neighbors) are finding their electricity back on, their homes in good shape, and their families all safe.  This past week has been rough for all of us in New York and New Jersey but has just reminded me of how tough us Tri-Staters are.  My thoughts and prayers are with those that are not faring as well in the devastation left by Sandy.

Moving on to the more superficial, I couldn't wait another moment before posting what has quickly become one of my top picks for favorite polish of 2012.  A Nordstrom exclusive Butter London, Two Fingered Salute was difficult to come by.  I tried my hand at a nasty bidding war on eBay but just didn't have the stomach to see it through.  Thankfully, Nordstrom still had this in stock when I ordered it a month ago and standard free shipping, and despite the fact that it was backordered a number of weeks, I finally got my hands on this beauty.

Two Fingered Salute is a smoky mint creme saturated with heavy copper microglitter pieces.  From far away, the copper turns the shade more of a dusty sage green, very similar to OPI Thanks a Windmillion.  Up close is where the magic happens, and from my macro below, you can really see how rich this polish is.

The formula was a tad thin, but not at all runny.  In fact, this is hands down the best formula I've ever experienced from Butter London.  Two Fingered Salute was opaque in three coats and cinch to remove, despite the glitter.




Are you as in love as I am?

  7. It really is a great brand! They are good to their customers and while the price is steep, it's definitely a good splurge brand from time to time.
