Have you wondered if I’m a true polish addict before? I’m sure you have figured out by now that I am, but if not, here is some proof. I said to myself “Ooh! Those new Butter London’s are pretty but I don’t need anymore pastels!” Then, I saw them in person and in one fell swoop… they were mine. LOL! So, today I give you Butter London collection for Spring 2013!
“Cuppa” is a putty toned neutral. I was worried this one wouldn’t be very forgiving with my skin tone but it has just enough gray undertones to make it flattering on me. I could see myself grabbing for this often! Nice formula on this one. This is 2 coats.
“Fiver” is a blue toned mint green. It has a pretty darn good formula for a pastel mint green! It could be opaque in 2 coats with a light hand but I used 3 coats here for good measure.
“Fruit Machine” is a pastel pink with cool undertones. Every time I say the name of this polish, I can’t help but think of The Ting Tings song with the same name. And now I finally know what Fruit Machine means! It British slang for slot machine! Yippee! LOL! Decent formula here but I did find that you need a pretty light hand for this one to avoid bald patches. This is 3 coats.
“Jasper” is a pastel yellow. I’ve succumbed to the fact that yellow polish and yellow pastels in particular are always going to be problem children. So, I don’t usually expect too much from them, as not to get disappointed. This one wasn’t the worst I’ve ever tried but it wasn’t a miracle baby either. 4 careful coats later, it looked pretty good. I almost could have gotten away with 3 but I decided to do one more for swatching purposes.
“Kerfuffle” is a pinky toned peach creme. I love me a good peach colored polish and the pink undertones on this one make me happy. It makes it different from a lot of the peach colored polishes I already own. The formula on this one is similar to “Fruit Machine.” 3 coats here.
“Molly-Coddled” had by far the best formula of the bunch! Almost a one coater! It is a pastel lilac creme. And it’s oh so creamy and easy to use. This is 2 coats.
Butter London polishes can be purchased on their website as well as many other stores and online retailers such as Ulta and Nordstrom! I really do love Butter London polishes and I own a lot of them. These are a happy addition to my stash.
And because this song is so awesome, I give you……… FRUIT MACHINE! :) (Womp wompppp… it’s just a slideshow, but great song!)
