In a dark mood? Here's some complimentary colors to help you express it!
Chimney Sweep. I loved swatches of this, but I kept putting off getting it because I thought I had enough charcoal grey shimmers. I didn't have enough, I'm glad I got this one! I love the blue shimmer. Makes it look sooty, but bright, too.
I added some tips with Dodgy Barnett, but then I made the tips a little wider so I could add another layer.
I added some Union Jack Black to the tips. I really like the contrast between the shimmery grey, the sparkly silver, and the jet black.
I even like it with a matte topcoat!

Branwen's Feather. This is a lovely dark eggplant color with shimmer. How does this color not get more love? I really liked it.
I layered progressively smaller stripes of Chimney Sweep, Dodgy Barnett, Union Jack Black, and then another stripe of Branwen's Feather.
Union Jack Black. How many black polishes do I need? Well, this one is a tossup. It's really beautiful and glossy. So glossy, it freaked my camera out. It's not a one-coater, though, but does well in two. So if you're happy with your Cult Nails Nevermore, or other A-England Camelot, or other 1-coat black, you may not want this.. but I'm glad I got it. ooh, shiny.
I decided to use a stamp with this one, and stamped with sparkly Dodgy Barnett. I liked this one so much, I wore it as a full mani the next day.
Dodgy Barnett. A sheer, silver scattered holo. There's still VNL after 2 coats, but it's so delicate and pretty I almost didn't mind.
I flipped the last mani and stamped over it with Union Jack Black, which does stamp well. I have no idea where that blue came from on my thumb, though. Seriously.
So, what do you think of the dark side of Butter London?
