Rosie Regatta7:27 PM
Okay, I'm officially a butterLONDON fan. This stuff is amazing and the colors are so beautiful. I'm also loving that it's a 3 Free polish AND totally vegan. Awesome. I got Rosie Lee and Henley Regatta for Easter and I thought they were going to be quite similar so I originally intended to do an accent nail with one. Once I got it on my fingers though, it was apparent that I was wrong. While both are glitter polishes, Rosie Lee has larger flakes of glitter which creates almost a pink disco ball effect on the nails. It's VERY sparkly. Henley Regatta has much finer glitter and in blue and green. While the Henley Regatta still sparkles quite a bit I was bothered by the difference in glitter sizes and opted instead to do some smaller accents with it. To cut down on the coats of glitter (and make removal easier) I used a base coat of a similar pink color before putting two coats of Rosie Lee on. I think it turned out rather nice.
Base color is: Three coats of Maybelline Express Finish in Berry Boucle followed by two coats of butterLONDON Rosie Lee. Flower is butterLONDON Henley Regatta and flower center is Nicole by OPI in Prized Posession Purple. There are two "swirls" of pink done with LA Colors Art Deco Nail Art paint in Intense Pink. Two coats of Seche Vite on top!
