#3 Holiday Manicure ~ butter London & Orly

Posted on: December 21, 2012

This #3 of 5 Holiday Manicures


Orly Buried Treasure with butter London Scallywag accent
I love this combination of gold with the blue sparkle of butter London Scallywag as an accent. I think this would be really pretty with a white frosty nail also.

Scallywag and China Glaze Water You Waiting For are very similar. BL is more sparkle -y and seems to be a lot brighter than WYWF. WYWF is in a dark blue base with blue, turquoise and purple micro glitter. The BL is a lighter base with blue, turquoise, purple and clear micro glitter. I do prefer the butter London Scallywag because it is so much brighter. (Scallywag was sent to me by a PR firm for my review).

Scallywag is on the left, WYWF is on the right, one coat of each. I hope the picture shows the difference in the bases used and the difference in the micro glitter. The China Glaze WYWF is a gorgeous blue micro glitter from their Cirque du Soleil collection just released. Scallywag from butter London is part of their Holiday 2012 collection. Butter London glitter polish seem to go on like regular polish, whereas the CG polish, I needed to ‘dab’ the glitter in place. Another reason I prefer the BL over the CG. Both are gorgeous blue micro glitter and who doesn’t love a bit of bright blue sparkle? Holiday time or not?

🎄As always, thanks for stopping by. #4 Holiday Manicure coming soon!

I have never had a bad experience shopping at Nordstrom nor HAUTELOOK. I HGHLY RECOMMEND BOTH STORES.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
