Butter London: Henley Regatta

Given my fondness for glitter, Henley Regatta became a must have for me as soon as I saw it there in the airport. It's packed with fine blue and green glitter, but I've been fooled by sparkly polishes that look dense in the bottle but are very scattered on the nail, so I layered this one over Victoriana from yesterday's entry. I started with one coat of Henley Regatta over Victoriana on my index finger and added another for each finger until I got to my pinky, which has four coats of glitter (!). I did add a top coat as well, since it looked a tiny bit bumpy without.





I liked this at all the different numbers of coats. It does build nicely, but just one coat as a topper adds lots of sparkle. It looks great in low light, too:



I glad I indulged in these, and equally glad they're not that easy to get where I live as I'd be tempted to go get more.
