Urban Outfitters Forest + Butter London Wallis

Ever had one of those days where you do your nails, look at them and think... "No"?  I had one today and (while I have tons of swatches to show for it) it was still frustrating.  I did 7 full manicures before I had a winner. Urban Outfitters Forest and Butter London's Wallis.

Honestly the only reason I got Forest was a)It reminded me of Wallis (which I *heart*) and b)It was super cheap.  Forest went on with no trouble at all in 2 easy coats.  Like Wallis it's an olive gold.  The main difference is Forest has really, really, really fine shimmer, where Wallis one ups it by packing itself which a whole crazy load of gold and green shimmer.  Wallis is like the pretty older sister who will go on to win an Oscar.  But don't worry Forest is great in her own way.  She's the younger sister who's ok looking and finds the cure for AIDS.

I'm glad I have forest.  All I need are 2 coats of her and one of Wallis and I'm good to go.  I like knowing that I can now use Wallis more often.

In other news I need to file my nails down a bit.  My current nails are starting to emphasize my boney witch hands.
