Butter London Holiday Lacquer Duo #2 ($20.00) is an absolutely perfect pair of polishes for the holiday season. I love gold, and I love glittery reds. Of course, I’m head over heels (nails?) in love with this set. Chancer is a glittery, shimmery red, while The Full Monty is a semi-pale, gilded gold. It’s not a bling-bling kind of gold; it’s more subdued, but still chalked full of shimmer and shine. The gift box packaging is fun and festive, so it makes a great gift to give to your nail lacquer lovin’ pals. I must admit that I was startled by how wasteful the box is, though, so I do wish they’d reduce the size, even if it is cute. Chancer is very similar to China Glaze’s Ruby Pumps (which I have and love), though I do feel like the glitter in Chancer is not nearly as chunky as Ruby Pumps, which makes it easier to remove. The Full Monty almost has a chrome/metallic finish, but it still has a lot of shimmer working for it, so you don’t have to worry about brush strokes showing.
