Share the Love: Day 4, Guest post from Chelsea of Nailed

Hello ladies! I hope you are all having a lovely Thanksgiving with your family and/or friends. Today, I am lucky to have miss Chelsea from Nailed (Click here to check out her blog!) share a guest post on my blog! As you may know, a few fabulous bloggers and myself have put together a guest post circle titled "Share the Love" it has been such an honor to have these ladies as guests on my blog and I am honored to be a guest on all of theirs! Tomorrow we will wrap everything up by posting our last themed mani on our own blogs. Okay, now I'll shut up so you can enjoy Chelsea's post! <3

Hi everybody! I hope you all are having a great week and that all the ladies participating in these guest posts are enjoying it so far- and that all of our readers are enjoying them as well. Thank you Heather for hosting me!

So my love affair with Butter London is no secret. At first I flinched at the idea of paying so much for a single polish but one day I decided to take the plunge and pony up for Wallis, my first Butter. I quickly came to love everything about the brand: the anglophile names, the gorgeous colors and the wonderful formulas. So now no matter how much my wallet protests, I need my Butter fix! :)
My guest post theme is blue so I chose a gorgeous blue Butter London polish to show you today: Lady Muck! What an interesting color this is. Lady Muck is a greyed out pastel blue shimmer. This is kind of like a darker, more pigmented OPI I Vant To Be A-Lone Star. Something about this shade feels very appropriate for winter, but what it really reminds me of is little raindrops on a grey day. But the pastel in this somehow makes it still seem cheerful, if that makes sense. Like I said, a very interesting shade.

Lady Muck's formula is outstanding, as I've come to expect from Butter polishes. I used three coats here, just because I'm kind of OCD about opacity, but I think most (read: less crazy) people would be happy with two. I really love this. Blue and grey are two of my favorite polish colors, so anything that mixes them together-and throws some bonus shimmer on top too-tends to get an A in my book. I've yet to try a Butter London I haven't liked and this one is definitely another keeper!

Thank you so much Chelsea! This was such a wonderful post (and one of my all time favorite polishes!) I'm so glad you joined in with Share the Love!!
