Butter London Two Fingered Salute

I was at Nordstrom the other day in their beauty section looking at nail polishesno surprise there :P and I came across a few Butter London colors that I haven't seen at any other store or on Butter London's website. Of the three such colors, Two Fingered Salute immediately caught my attention. It is a slightly muted, dusty green with the most fascinating scattering of bronze shimmer flakes in it.






The bronze shimmer flakes are particularly interesting. They are densely packed and larger than usual shimmers, so they show up clearly on the nails. They seem similar to the bronze shimmers in Rescue Beauty Lounge's Cuprum, a long time lemming of mine. Depending on the light and angle, the bronze shimmers have a tendency to flash pink and red. I had a little trouble capturing the color shift of the shimmers on the nails, but it is definitely more noticeable in person and you can see it clearly in the bottle.

The formula applies like a dream. It's thin and smooth, making application free from dragging or pooling. And it is opaque in two thin coats. Since the particles in there are shimmers and not glitters, removal is quick and painless. :-)

I believe Two Fingered Salute is a Nordstrom exclusive, so you can find it in Nordstrom stores and online at Nordstrom.com for $14 for 0.4 fl oz.

    1. I'm glad you like it! Nordstrom ships within the US for free and they also offer some international shipping, so you may still be able to get it. :-)

    1. I'm glad you like it! Bummer that there's no Nordstrom near you, but I think Nordstrom has free shipping, so at least it's convenient. :-)
