Butter London – Pearly Queen

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 8 - 2011

I would love to tell you about this shade, but I’ve drunk 3/4 bottle of really cheap, crap merlot and it’s taken me a good 5 minutes to make this sentence readable.

What’s that Mr. L?  Vogue are onthe phone?  They want to employ me?  Tell them that I charge double for posts this shiteous.

Right, let me put a bit of effort into stopping these letters dancing around the monitor.

Pearly Queen reminds me of everything I wanted OPI Moon over Mumbai to be… but in less coats.  3 coats gives the elegant finish shown above (though 2 will do if you don’t mind a slight VNL)… and it really is elegant and elongating with a pretty satin finish.  My nails feel proper lady-like without being frou frou or bridal.

Pearly Queen is available to buy online from PowderRooms, priced at £9.75

    So glad someone else writes posts when lashed, the times I have woken up with a banging head and in a cold sweat that I pushed “publish” with no clue what I had written!

    oooo i like lots, not sure it will work so well on short nails though :-(

  3. Cassie says:

    Beautiful colour but I’ve the same opinion as Em here. I don’t think the effect would be as dramatic on my dinky nails. *sigh* shame though!

    I have painted my nails while drunk on wine. They did not turn out like yours by any means! I accidentally got my hair into them and ended up not letting my topcoat dry long enough so I had little fingerprints and dents in them. Lesson learned. lol

    Oooh me like, although I feel it would enhance the redness in my hands and suits either tanned or super-pale delicate skin.
