Last weekend I went into Ulta to pick up the Butter London Victoriana and Wallis I've been lusting for. When I got up to the checkout, the clerk told me that they were having a buy two, get one free deal. So I went back to look over the colors again. Honestly, for the most part I don't find the Butter colors to be very unique, and it took me quite a while to decide to go with No More Waity, Katie. It's a color/effect that's underrepresented in my stash.
This one applied like butter. Cold, hard butter straight from the fridge. Butter that clumps up and won't spread properly. Overall, I'm rather disappointed with this one, although it seems to be a must-have color for a lot of people. It was much sheerer than I was expecting, so I had to do three coats. Three laboriously applied coats. And the sparkle just . . . isn't. It's very subdued. In real life, it's no where near as shimmery as this photo shows. I considered adding a little thinner to make it flow more readily, but chickened out because I thought I might have to up the ante to four coats.
Moving on . . . Yesterday my mom told me she loved my new clutch (thanks, Mom!) but couldn't tell how big it was, and that she thought it was coin purse size. Au contraire! Look:
I added a sweet little tulip pin that Hubby gave me years ago. The flower is crystal.
I knew when I took the photos for the first post that it wouldn't be obvious how big the clutch is. But at that point, I was wearing a polish that looked so hideous on me (Urban Outfitters Barstool) that I just couldn't bear to take a picture of it!
Today I'm off to look for some leather for clutch #2!
