Butter London: Spring 2013 Sweetie Shop Collection

Posted on Feb 5, 2013

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!)
