butter LONDON Sprog and Teetotal

Morning! For today's post, I did some simple nail art with two of the newer butter LONDON shades. I thought they looked so nice together that once I had done this much, I just didn't want to add anything more!

The brown base color is Teetotal, a cool toned dark chocolate-y brown. I don't have any brown shades like it in my stash, most of them are warmer! I used two coats of Teetotal, and it had the same amazing butter LONDON formula as always. Easy, smooth, and lovely.

The flowers are done in Sprog, a pretty periwinkle blue creme. This particular polish goes on pretty thin for the first coat but only needs a second coat to bring it to opacity. Again, the formula was great and applied very easily.

This design is really easy. I just used my medium length striper brush to freehand on some large flowers, not really worrying about how delicate or consistent they looked. I think it gave it a neat kind of mod flower pattern look. Sometimes you just gotta keep it simple! :)

Here are swatches of Sprog and Teetotal alone. These photos are actually without topcoat, and look how shiny they both are! I really love Sprog, in particular.
