Butter London Shag

Hi and happy Friday, lovely readers! :-)

Today is my 4 year wedding anniversary with my husband. I just wanted to take a moment to share with you how wonderful of a support he has been for me and this blog. Not only does he proofread all my posts, but he has accompanied me on numerous polish-shopping trips and sat patiently with me through hours of weekend swatching after I have rearranged our weekend plans around the daylight I need for taking pictures. He is also the one to shake me awake at night when I fall asleep on the couch while editing pictures or writing a post, reminding me that I must finish my next day's post. <3

I have my favorite color from Butter London's Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection to show you today. Shag is a warm, copper-toned, reddish brown with lots of gold, orange, and red shimmers in a metallic finish.






The formula on this is just perfection. It is smooth and easy to apply, with no dragging or pooling. The pigmented formula achieves opaque coverage in two quick coats. And even though it is a metallic, it's not plagued by any discernible brush strokes. This color just epitomizes fall for me. It is the color of vibrant autumn leaves and apple cider, and just looking at it warms me up and helps to fight off some of the autumn chill in the air.

You can find Shag on butterlondon.com for $14 for 0.4 fl oz.

  4. So glad to hear this isn't a brushstroke-ish mess. That's my biggest issue with metallics and the main reason I always hesitate to purchase them. Now I'll have to give this one a second look. :)
