So, yesterday's post was kinda.. meh. I wanted FLAKIES. So, I decided to try one of the new Butter London Gift Sets - The Double Take Ice Duo. This is Bluecoat, a metallic/electric blue. Great formula, very subtle shimmer.
I think this is a little darker than a cobalt blue, lighter then navy.. maybe a royal blue color?
The topcoat that comes in the set is called Leccy, a Brit slang word for electricity.
Butter London calls it a 'blue opal' topcoat. The flecks aren't traditional flakies. They are more like the new chunky shards of mylar. The remind me of the little pieces of foil you can buy for nail art.
Here's the bottle shot: Butter London Bluecoat and Leccy.
What do you think of these types of flakies? I prefer the traditional iridescent kind, myself, but I'm not opposed to these. Tomorrow, I have the other duo to show you, plus a little bonus! Stay tuned!
