Full sun. 2/3 coats. Don't know really. I just sploshed it on.
This is one of my all-time faves.
Butter London is one of the best higher-end polishes IMO for quality. I got 3 in a bargain-pack from ebay. Didn't spend the usual £10 on them.
Rosie Lee (if you didn't know) is Cockney rhyming slang for tea. Rosie is also my younger daughter's name (well, Rosemary). I love this polish. And I love my daughters and I love tea. So that's easy.
And outside in shade.
Sod's law dictated that the Bourjois red DID chip after a couple of days after I'd said it would be good for a month or so!
I'd definitely recommend this brand (Butter) even though I'm fairly sure it's not actually British. Because I'd had chipping I wanted glitter or foil as those finishes are more robust. The Claire's Mood polish that Rebekah sent me turned out to be a foil and lasted brilliantly.
Not quite sure what the brand is but I don't think this ad would ever have enticed me to buy the polish even in a much more media-innocent era.
Look at the print she's wearing. That has to be 60s. And, yet again, the saleslady is a very proper person who wouldn't dream of selling you Avon products without wearing her pill-box hat. D'you think it was a rule? Thou shalt not flog lippie without your trusty hat! I'm sure this was quite a funky ad for the time and Avon were trying really hard with their packaging.
My favourite ads are the meerkat ones. Cosmetics advertising leaves me cold. What cosmetics have you been tempted to buy on the strength of the advertising rather than blog recommendation or just browsing?
