Butter London polish Update/Review

Hello again! I thought I’d write up a quick post of my opinion of the Butter London polishes that I got a little while ago, and also show you the swatches of the colour HRH on my nails.


100_0446The tips are a little messy because of the touch-ups I did, its a lot less visible when you aren’t looking at it under a flash…

I really like this polish and this particular colour. It’s very shiny, even without a topcoat, and the colour is so beautiful and rich. The polish goes on smooth, and is opaque in 2 coats, which is great. I’ve been wearing it for three days now and have had a lot of wear at the tip, which I’ve just touched up for this picture, but until tonight I wasn’t wearing a topcoat, so such wear is to be expected.

As for Chancer, I can’t deny that I absolutely adore the colour, which is super sparkly and deep, but I can’t say I feel the same about it’s formulation. I don’t know what’s different between HRH and Chancer, besides the fine glitter in the latter, but somehow, while HRH has great staying power and is pretty chip resistant, Chancer tended to chip a lot on my nails. I wore it for about 5 days, and I pretty much had to touch up a chip somewhere every night. I’m really disappointed, because the colour is fantastic, but I’m glad I didn’t pay full price, since this particular colour certainly isn’t worth the $17 price tag, at least in my opinion.

Have you tried Butter London? Have you had a bad experience with their polish, or maybe with another brand that’s supposed to be high-quality?
