I was in the mood for a neutral shade when I was last selecting a polish hue, and I settled on butter London’s All Hail the Queen. I was lucky in that the sun came out for a little while around the time that I finished painting, so I was able to enjoy the holographic shimmer in this one as well.
All Hail the Queen has a cool-toned, neutral beige base. This polish is on the deeper end of beige, which makes it a nice choice for winter when it will contrast well with the stark white outdoors. Added to this base is a sprinkling of scattered holographic sparkle. In indoor lighting, the shimmer adds a dimension of silver sparkle to the neutral base. In the sunlight, flashes of color reflect from the shimmer, giving it a subtle holographic look.
The application for this polish was without issue. It applied easily and was my perfect consistency. The dry time was a touch longer than some polishes, but nothing terrible. It is on the sheer side; I used 3 coats for the photos, and the coverage was completely even and opaque at that point. The staying power of this polish is also fantastic. I wore this for 3 days without top coat and did not have a single chip or knick in my nails after all that time. Color me impressed. I used a base coat and 3 coats of All Hail the Queen for the photos.
Do you like this more subtle, workplace appropriate holo mani? I really love this color as a beige that doesn’t wash out my skin tone.
I purchased this polish a while ago from the butter London online shop for $9.00 or $10.00. I only purchase from them when they are having sales, which happens a few times a year. They are regularly priced at $15.00.
