Butter London's Lillibet's Jubilee

The polish I've got for you today is very special (at least to me!). It's Lillibet's Jubilee by Butter London. 
This polish is meant to commemorate Queen Elizabeth II's 60th anniversary of the accession to the throne, her Diamond Jubilee. Only one other monarch in history has reigned long enough to celebrate a Diamond Jubilee (Queen Victoria in 1897, if you're curious). 
I've always been very fascinated by the British Monarchy and all of it's history, so I knew I needed this polish the moment I heard about it. 

I don't generally wear metallics (this might be the only one in my whole collection!) because they usually make my hands look weird but I like this one. It's a silver, lavendar metallic foil with some small glitters in it. I tried to capture all of it's beauty in my pictures but they don't do it justice. You really need to see this in person to get the full effect!

This polish could have been a one coater but I decided to go with two coats for good measure. 

Here is how it looks in the sun:



And here it is in the shade:




This polish was really nice to work with and dry time was fairly fast as well. 

For Reference:
1 coat Nail Magic base coat
2 coats Lillibet's Jubilee
1 coat NYC Grand Central Station
