Get Pantone’s Tangerine Tango For Your Nails With Jaffa From butter LONDON

 

The new Jaffa nail lacquer from Butter London is beautiful. It falls between orange and coral and is such a bright fun color. I wore it out on New Years Eve and loved it!  This was my first time trying butter London and its a great polish, very opaque color can be worn in one or two coats. 

I had some great photos of the polish on but I was cleaning up my camera this weekend and somehow instead of selecting a group of photos to delete I deleted all 948 photos off of my camera! You can see how it looks here its a really beautiful shade.

Try Glitter
WHAT TO KEEP IN MIND For glimmering nails—not gauche ones—manicurist Ashlie Johnson recommends the following tip: “Paint your nails a solid color first, then layer glitter on just the tips—like a French manicure.” Bonus: Since glitter formulas are harder to remove, your manicure has more staying power.
