Tester: Asian (Filipino) about Tia Carrea's complexion with short nails.
"I'm a big fan of butter LONDON polishes and have used several of their shades from the pale neutrals to the reds, so this was a nice new shade to throw in the mix.
Big Smoke is a lovely color that's edgy and chic at the same time. It's a really pretty deep smoky blue shade with a touch of gray. It's very unique in that it's a soft metallic shade. This means that even though it was dark, I never felt out of place wearing it during the day or for business.The Butter LONDON formula dried quick and went on very smooth. With a top coat applied every other day, I was also able to have about 4-5 days with very little chipping.
This is another winning shade from their line. Because of the softness in this color, it's also really flattering on all skin tones as well. For those of you who are dark nail addicts (as well as those of you who have never ventured into edgier shades), this is a must have polish to add to your collection." L.V.
Editor's Note: For those of you who noticed Beyonce's hot nail shade on the cover of the November 08 Essence magazine, this is a really good dupe for it!
