Butter London Swatches

Hello All,

Recently Ulta had a sale on Butter Londons making them each $9 versus the normal $15 a polish. I love me some Butter Londons but they are usually priced out of my range.

I picked up three beautiful colors at the sale. I was really feeling the red/pink scheme so I ended getting Butter London's Pillar Box Red, Trout Pout, and Snog.



 If I had known about my fingerprints on the caps, I would have wiped them off before taking the picture. But oh well, it is what it is. Up first is a swatch of Pillar Box Red.


I'm in love with this color! It maybe my new favorite red. If you apply it correctly you might be able to get away with one coat, but I wore two coats just to be on the safe side. There was some slight staining around the cuticles when I removed it. Next up is Snog.


 This is a bright pink that is great. It applies great. This was another polish that if applied correctly could be a one coater, but I'm paranoid and applied two. And last but not least is Trout Pout.


 Trout Pout is one of those colors that I've been hearing about for years and I'm glad I finally took the plunge. Butter London describes this polish as a "opaque cantaloupe nail lacquer looks great on anyone." I'm inclined to believe them. This polish was a bit more finicky for me. The first layer went on a bit streaky, the second had a few bald spots, but the third layer evened everything out nicely. Also this color was hard to photograph true to its color.

Check back tomorrow for some fun stamping that I did with 2 of the 3 colors I bought.

Enjoy & until tomorrow, Amy Lee

    1. If you watch for the sales, it makes the prices comparable to OPI and others. Also, Ebay is a great place to find them for cheap. :-)

  2. I don't normally pay full price for butter london cause I'm kinda cheap that way. The only brand that I don't mind splurging on is Illamasqua. I've been wanting to get Trout Pout but always end up changing my mind...why? I have no idea. Every time I see swatches, I want it.

    1. ME TOO! That's why I was excited about the sale. It's a beautiful color, I bet it would look great with your skin tone.
