|Essie- A Cut Above & butter LONDON - Teddy Girl|
I realize you have probably seen this nail look a hundred times before, but for me to actually wear something besides a creme finish on my nails is quite a departure from the norm! Also, I thought this combo was such a pretty & understated way to still wear the glitter polish trend without going all-out disco on your nails!
Although I love the color & wear time of butter LONDON's Teddy Girl, I have to warn you- this color is a pain to work with. The color is thick & incredibly streaky. There is no way you could get away with wearing any less than 2 coats. In order to hide all the streaks on my nails, I had to apply three coats.
If you are looking for a cheaper dupe of Teddy Girl, I recommend you pick up Fiji by Essie. Fiji is much milkier and less pastel pink than Teddy Girl, but it still gives a similar effect on the nails.
As far as glitter polishes go, I absolutely love the understated rose-gold glitter in Essie's A Cut Above. This top coat looks great over a wide range of pink polishes & adds a gorgeous mirror-like sparkle.
How do you feel about wearing glitter on your nails?
Thanks for reading!
Lots of Love,
