Butter London Review

These got a mention in a What I'm Loving... post but I've gotten a couple of questions so I figured I'd do a more thorough review on them. At $14 a piece, my expectations were pretty high for Butter London and I have to say - I'm not disappointed. I've been wearing All Hail McQueen for going on a week and there is not one single chip in my nails. Pretty impressive. Butter London is certainly just as good, if not better, than my OPI nail polishes (my gold standard for nail polish). Now, I'm perfectly happy with OPI and they're at a price point that most people would probably be more comfortable with. I understand Butter London is going to be too expensive for a lot of people and that's fine, but I think the quality is excellent and if you're will to pay the price, you won't regret the purchase.


A big thank you for all the comments on my UGGs post yesterday and the response to my question on Twitter! These are on their way in size 8, in Chocolate:
I know I should have been patient and tried them on in-store, but the Shopbop 20% Friends and Family code was going out yesterday. Couldn't pass up getting these for $144.00 instead of $180.00! I got several sizing confirmations so hopefully it'll be ok. I'm so excited! :)

You have just answered the question I had in mind. i keep on buying different nail polish and they chip within hours, so it is great that you can offer a good review on Butter London nail polish. Thank you my lovely...

Connie @ SogniESorrisi said...

I've yet to try these polishes but a week without a chip sounds pretty darn good to me!

THE ALTERNATIVE WIFE said...

Love Butter London too! Good deal not chipping for a week, right?

And glad you got the UGGs. 20% off is a good deal. So hard to get UGGs on sale.

Isabel said...

if i see butter london in a store i may be tempted to try it out! i recently bought a polish from sephora which came in a ridiculously tiny bottle probably about a quarter the size of an opi..cost 7$ AND is chips after a day or 2...mad me mad i spent so much money or a poor quality polish.

Kayla said...

I'm obsessed with Butter London too! I pass no judgement on the Uggs. As long as you promise never to wear them with any type of short.

20% off Uggs?? Those babies never go on sale! I'm off to get my long awaited Black pair!!

kelli g. { bug miscellany } said...

yesssssssss! i can't wait for my date with BL. :D

Valerie said...

Score on using the FF code for your Uggs! I can't wait to hear how you like them once you get them. I've never used Butter nail polish, but I might have to try it. Right now I'm in a strictly OPI and Essie phase, mostly because that's what the beauty supply store near my apartment carries. I just ordered a gold glitter polish by Deborah Lippmann and I'm excited to try it. But Butter is next on my list.

I love Butter too! They have a shop in the Seattle airport where you can even get your nails done! I stop every time!

Rita said...

i've never tried Butter London before, I don't think we have it here, but I swear for OPI. Except is a bit pricy here, not as expensive as let's say Chanel but pretty close.
Those uggs are gorgeous! Great buy!

Horray for your boots! Can't wait to hear how happy your toes will be come Christmastime!

Jaime @ La vie...J'aime said...

Thanks for the review- that polish is pricey but seems worth it! They have some fab colors.

Tiffany said...

I love the color range for Butter London. I saw that they are at Nordstrom so I'm going to get some next time. We have a Butter London salon here but I haven't gone yet!

Jen said...

I had a nail polish disaster over the weekend and am done with cheap polish! I really want to try these now! Where can I find them?

I have heard of Butter before but unsure they're available in NZ. Their colour range looks good.

Those are the exact boots I want for winter! Love them!

Michelle said...

I loveee uggs. being canadian and all theres not really anyway around it hahaha

Jessica said...

Sounds like the polish is worth the splurge! I picked up a bottle of Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri polish for those last-minute manicure mornings. Too bad it chips by the end of the day ... so now I'm using it to insta-cover-up chips. Pain the rear end. Definitely just going to start ponying up the cash for real polish and waiting the dry time.

End rant.

Grit and Glamour said...

Yay! Thanks for posting this! Or maybe not. Now I can add Butter London to my polish collection. I just added my first three Lippmanns, and I have to say I'm impressed as well.
