Can I per-suede you?
Another of my new butterLONDON colors! I seriously love these. This one is called Victoriana. It's a nice grey-blue with silvery glitter. It's absolutely gorgeous in it's shiny glory but I'm loving it as a matte. It really looks like it was meant to be a suede and it ranks right up there with Suzi Ski's in the Pyrenees (by OPI) for me. Suedes are my favorite's anyway and I'm always excited when a polish looks great matte AND shiny. Anyway I didn't want to do anything too flashy over it so I just did some cute little flowers across the middle. Of course the problem with matte's is they don't last long. This one was no different. It was chipped (albeit a SMALL chip) after 48 hours. Still, it was SO pretty it was worth the short life!
Base is: butterLONDON Victoriana. Two coats of Essie Matte About You over that and then stamped on flowers from konad m74 in Nicole by OPI Give Me the First Dance.
