Hey everybody! Today I have another famous fall courtesy of Pretty Jelly! And guess what's falling down today? Why, it's London Bridge, my fair ladies! ;)
London Bridge is, of course, a very old nursery rhyme/game that everybody has played as a child. I say everybody...but these days, I don't know...is there an app for that? :/ Pretty Jelly's London Bridge is an homage to that structure that has had many incarnations, and according to the song, always seems to be in need of repair!
As you can see, there is nothing in need of repair here! London Bridge is a pale grey crelly with small and medium gold hex glitter, gold holo glitter, and a ton of gold and pale blue shimmer. I know I'm sounding like a broken record here, but I love this polish! What seems like such a simple combination is so very elegant.
Isn't this beautiful? London Bridge is another one of those polishes that gives me a clear mental image...it looks like sunlight peeking through the London fog. London Bridge is a bit sheer, although you could probably reach opacity on its own with 3 coats. But because my visible nail line is SO visible, I layered London Bridge over Zoya Kendal, which I've discovered will pretty much morph into whatever color I tell it to. The result was exceptionally lovely, as the very slight lavender of Kendal looked wonderful with the grey crelly base of London Bridge.
CAUTION: FOOD ANALOGY AHEAD
As I was admiring my polish on the drive into work, I realized that London Bridge made me feel inexplicably warm and toasty, and not just because it's 85 degrees right now...rather, it was a nostalgic kinda warm that probably involved food. Then it hit me...London Bridge reminds me of my Mom's homeade oyster stew, with the creamy, milky base and the little drops of butter floating to the top...mmmmmmm...
Or maybe we all just need a spot of English tea.
What do you think of London Bridge? It's another amazing "fall" from the Pretty Jelly Fall Collection. You can purchase London Bridge and other Pretty Jelly polishes from Etsy, Mei Mei's Signatures, and Edgy Polish. Pretty Jelly polishes are 5-free and cruelty-free.
