For this post I layered Scouse, which butter London describes as "Sheer, royal blue and indigo duochrome nail lacquer with pink, purple, and blue microglitter.", over Nina Ultra Pro's Cobalt.
The definition of Scouse is a "Brit slang referring to a person from Liverpool"
Cobalt is such a stunning color, and is HOT HOT HOT this season, but it is so hard to photograph, as blues usually are. I did have to fiddle around with my camera and settings in order to get to capture it's "in real life" color, so please forgive the brightness of some of the shots.
For this manicure I started with the usual Orly Bonder base followed by 3 coats of Cobalt and topped with a coat of SV to render it super shine-tastic. I had to include a partial shot of the ring I wore with this mani, which is a sterling silver setting with a chunk of a Ming vase in it. What can I say? It matched perfectly.
After I grew bored of Cobalt all on it's own I layered on 2 coats of Scouse to my mani and topped again with SV. That's quite a few layers of nail polish, but it all held up very well.
Scouse is an exclusive color that can be found only at Dillard's stores or via the butter London website and sell for $14.00 each. Cobalt can be found at Sally's online store for $4.19 with their beauty club card. I picked mine up in person and believe it was actually priced at under $4.00 in store with my Sally's card.
Will you be jumping on the Cobalt band wagon this season? Please do!
Until next time...
