The end result was very jelly-like and gorgeous in direct light - in indirect light it just looked like dark blue polish. Because of that I had the hardest time taking pictures of this mani! I had to take almost all of my pictures without flash for you to be able to see the flakies in this polish combination. And I'm still not satisfied with the way any of them turned out. The first picture in the post is with flash, to give you a different idea of how this mani looked.
Though this is the first time you've seen butterLONDON on the blog, I do actually own another butterLONDON polish, that I have worn as well! Two Fingered Salute was a Nordstrom exclusive a few years ago that I DESPERATELY wanted for a very long time and I was able to snag it for $8 on a blog sale back in October.
Probably the most color-accurate and the overlal best representation of this mani would be the pictures in the following collage. I took each of these photos on my phone in artificial light in my office at work. I didn't take any pictures with my camera, but for the third day I wore this mani, I decided to add NYC Matte Me Crazy on top. You can definitely see the flakies better with the matte topcoat.
Overall, wear time on these polishes was great. As you can see in the matte picture, I did have some shrinkage at the tips, but more than likely that was from the many layers of Out the Door topcoat that I applied. I will definitely have to find more manicures to incorporate Leccy so that I can MAYBE get a good picture of her. I also look forward to wearing Bluecoat on its own at some point to see if the elusive shimmer will appear. Have a great weekend!
