Wrapped in Rubies looks to be very similar to butter LONDON’s Perfect Prezzie. Unfortunately, Perfect Prezzie sold in a recent blog sale so I can’t do a size by size comparison. Click on the links for lulz anyway: my photography has come A LONG way peoples.
The philosophy of both lacquers is the same. Combine red with swathes of gold and hope for the best.
Wrapped in Rubies does pull off the look better than Perfect Prezzie as the gold does translate to the nail. Somewhat. But it’s still very subtle and pretty much unnoticeable unless you’re actively looking for it.
If the colour isn’t a perfect success, then the formula is. This is a genuine, no fooling, hands down, pants down, one coater. What you see here is one, single, thin coat. For me, that’s amazing that a colour like this (with frost in it no less) can apply so smoothly and perfectly.
Essie, I kneel at your feet.
