Butter London The Old Bill

Ah, work has me really stressed out this week. I have so much to do and my progress has been so slow that it's discouraging, which makes it even harder for me to concentrate and continue to make progress. Have you ever felt like that? *sigh*

Thank goodness I have a new pretty polish to cheer me up! Butter London's The Old Bill is a copper bronze with a smooth metallic finish.







Sometimes when you think of bronze, there is a rose influence that goes with it, but I can't detect much rose tint at all in The Old Bill. It is a burnished copper, more brown than pink. Depending on your skin tone, this color can blend into your skin, but in a good way. It comes across subtle and elegant, but still with a flash of color.

The formula on this is amazing! So smooth and buttery, it flows onto the nails without any issues. It has great color payoff and is opaque in two coats. Often with metallics, you will see brush strokes, but not so much here. Once it dries, almost all the brush strokes are gone, and all that is left is the perfect copper sheen. This really is just liquid metal-on-nails perfection! :-)

You can find The Old Bill on butterlondon.com for $14 for 0.4 fl oz, or as part of the Heavy Medal Collection of three polishes for $36.

  3. It looks good on you - it might be quite like Misa Teddy Bear, and I was sure it would be awful on me, but it blended as you describe - in the good way :)

  4. It looks so nice on you! Nothing like pretty, shiny nails to stare at to perk you up :) Don't be stressed. Work is just a means to an end, lol. Hang in there, Yun. Hug.

  5. I felt like you many times! But you should not stress yourself any more, because you only harm yourself. It usualy helps me that I try to forget about time limits and then work starts to go faster by itself... And yes, polishes can help a lot to cheer us up! =)) This one is gorgeous! I'm not a fan of similar colours because I feel that they are hard to work with, but this one looks flawless on you! <3

    1. Thanks for your kind words. You are right, I should not let work stress me out because it also slows me down. I will try to remember that. I'm glad you like the polish! :-)

    1. Thanks, I'm glad you like it. Aww I suffer from polish-remorse often, either buying something I didn't like as much as I thought or not buying something I really like lol. :-)
