When I think of summery nails the first thing to pop into my mind is pale hues of blue, yellow, green, and of course pink. I came across this great shade from L’Oreal called Butterfly Kisses — even the name is beautiful. I love the pale pink with almost a hint of lavender in it.
Despite how it looks in the bottle, the first coat goes on sheer. I found the first coat difficult to work with and a bit streaky so it is definitely not a one coat polish even if I wanted a sheer look.
Two coats are definitely much better but there were still some spots that needed a touch up.
So three thin coats are best for this formula. If you look closely you can still see the edge of the nail tip so it is not completely opaque but that is not a necessity for this pretty color.
This color was released in 2012 and is still in some stores (I just got mine at Shopper’s Drug Mart) and online at Amazon (link below). While I love to dabble in the “summer” hues I still will not put away my darker colors for the season. What about you?
