Butter London Knees up & China glaze Party Hearty


I decided last year that I had to have this after seeing it on Lipglossiping. After tracking it down at Harvey Nichols and paying a small fortune (this was before the re-release) I wasn't disappointed - this is an amazing glowy metallic red. It does have a sweet wrapper quality to it, for sure. Easy application in to coats with no horrible streaks. Total perfection.






The only downside? Wear. I applied this last night, washed my hair this morning before taking pictures, and I'd already developed three chips. So, since I'm going to have to take this off soon, I decided to pop some glitter over for the hell of it. Since this is a perfect holiday colour, I paired it with China Glaze Party Hearty. Yeah, so I'm only three months late for Christmas...maybe I'll have a V-day mani for summer.

Now that's a gorgeous color! I just love the reds! It is a shame it chipped, but it looks very festive with the glitter! :-)

It does, doesn't it? I was so upset when it chipped - but at least it encourages me to save it for special occasions so I don't whizz through the bottle!

I like the combo with the Xmas glitter. I just posted my Valentine's look a few days ago, so don't feel bad. Maybe us procrastinators can get together and do "Christmas in July," LOL!

Butter London drives me NUTS for that reason...wear! It just costs too much to behave so badly. Lovely color, though.

Knees Up was one I had to have - and like others have said - chipping is a real problem for me with that brand and yet I keep buying them here and there. Party Hearty was a much better holiday glitter from CG 10 vs. the glitter they did for holiday '11 IMHO.

Knee's Up is my absolute favorite polish. In fact, I just finished painting my nails with it, then came to read blogs and saw this! I feel like I don't see it on many blogs so I was pretty excited to see it here.
