This post is super exciting because 1. it’s the first with my ah-mazing new camera (and new watermark), 2. Pantone just announced their 2013 color of the year as emerald, and this polish is the perfect emerald color, and 3. I LOVE butter LONDON, and this polish is just plain gorgeous. I seriously can’t get over how much better these pictures are!
Ok, first of all, I am super excited that Pantone picked emerald as their color of the year for 2013. It’s my birthstone (May), so I already have a ton of emerald things, and green is my favorite nail polish color. I might just wear it every day until 2014. Hope you guys are ok with that! Ok, I’m kidding, but I could do it. And I wouldn’t be bored (ok, maybe that’s a lie…).
And now onto the actual polish (which is the point of this post, right?). This is butter LONDON Thames, named after the famous river to which it bears no resemblance – I know, I’ve been on it (in a boat) and it’s dirty and gross and gray (side note: Nails Inc. has a polish called The Thames and it’s the most amazing gray ever). Anyway, this polish is literally the color of emeralds. Add that to it’s gorgeous lit-from-within shimmer and this is like wearing emeralds on your fingers. I got this in a Coterie deal maybe a month ago, and, in the bottle, it wasn’t my favorite. So when I finally put this on yesterday, I couldn’t believe how much I ended up loving this! So gorgeous. If you only ever get one bL polish, you should definitely consider this one.
This was three coats with Essie Good to Go. It’s a bit sheer, but, like the name suggests, goes on like butter.
I am so excited that I can now post pictures like this instead of struggling to get my camera to focus on something. That was my biggest hope/goal for this blog this year, and I totally feel like the blog is a million times better already! If there’s anything else you would like to see improved, let me know! I’m always looking to make this blog better in any way I can, so I would love your suggestions.
And in case any of you were wondering, my old camera was a four-year-old Sony Cybershot (which was a very nice camera when I got it), and my new one is a Canon Rebel T3.
P.S. Finger Paints makes a very close almost-dupe for Thames, which I gave away and can’t remember the name of. But you’ll know it when you see it. I will try to check it the next time I go to Sally’s.
