When I’m feeling daring and sexy, I wear red nail polish. It’s loud and vibrant and pretty. But sometimes I feel vibrant and happy, but perhaps not so daring – and that’s when I turn to corals. I love the combination of peach and pink, the warmness of the peachy-orange goes well with my fair skin tone and the brightness of the pink makes the color fun and happy :o) It’s the perfect spring/summer color. Well, I guess it’s January – but I can pretend.
I may have already owned a coral nail polish… or two, but when I saw Macbeth, I couldn’t resist so of course I had to pick it up too. When I took it home, I saw it looks similar to my other two corals - but of course it’s *slightly* different, so totally acceptable to own!
Butter London describes Macbeth as: an orangey coral that will make you want to do terrible things and won’t wash off your hands.
Rowr! While I can’t say I feel like doing terrible things and not washing my hands (I’m a germ freak, I always wash my hands), I will say the orangey coral is very accurate! How orangey Macbeth is depends on the lighting. Sometimes it appears a bright pink and other times an orangey-red coral.
If you are familiar with Zoya Kara, Macbeth is a shade darker and a little more red.
The color is very opaque. One coat completely covered my nail.
One of my favorite things about Butter London is how fast the nail polishes dry! It’s pretty awesome. And of course, it’s 3 Free – meaning free of Formaldehyde, Toluene or DBP.
