A couple of weeks ago, butter LONDON did a terrible thing: they had a half-price sale on a TON of polishes. Oh well. I might have bought...a couple? I spotted Prince's Plums, which was previously a Nordstrom's exclusive, and was intrigued by it. Then I heard it..."Melissaaaaaaaaa..." :)
I love this polish. Goodness gracious, it's pretty. It even wowed my hard-to-impress Mom. It's blurple in the bottle, but on the nail it's a fantastic metallic purple with a strong red shift. And don't even get me started on the abundant blue shimmer. Taken together it's perfectly plum-colored. Wow, go figure! :P
I used 3 coats of Prince's Plums to get an even application. I had no problems with flooding, but it had a tendency to look patchy in spots, so a third coat fixed that problem nicely. In direct sunlight, you can see a lot of blue in this. I think it's a unique color and completely wonderful. <3 But alas, I had the same problem I've had before with BL...and no, not the shameless chipping of the Knight Who Shall Remain Nameless...tip wear. BUTTER LONDON, WHY DO YOU HATE ME??? *Sigh.*
Okay, I'm over it. Wow...did I mention how much I love Prince's Plums?? :D
Do you have the pleasure of owning this plumtastic shade yourself? Prince's Plums is easily one of my favorite purple shades EVER. Some things are worth the tip wear. :)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
