Butter London Double Take (the red version)

Butter London released a bunch of sets for Christmas this year. Two of these sets were the Double Take sets. One is Blue and the other Red, both with matching flakie topcoats.  I found these sets at Macy's while I was on Holiday in Hawaii for US$24 (when they sold Butter London in New Zealand we paid NZ$30 (US$24) a polish!)

Butter London Rebel Fox - Sunshine

Butter London Rebel Fox - Shade

Rebel Fox is a burgundy shimmer that looks a lot darker and browner in the bottle.  There is also very visible gold shimmer in the bottle that doesn't translate onto the nail.  This is three coats, and it has quite a thin consistency.  I think it could have almost used another coat, once you get it in the sun it appears a bit patchy, and I wasn't happy with it.

Butter London Brass Monkey over Rebel Fox - Sunshine

Butter London Brass Monkey over Rebel Fox - Shade

This is two coats of Brass Monkey over Rebel Fox.  It is red/orange iridescent flakies in a clear base.  This one had a better consistency but I think it could have had more flakies in it so that only one coat is needed.

Lots of Love
