Butter London Swatches & GIVEAWAY

Monday, May 04, 2015

I've been a fan of Butter London polishes in the past after acquiring some minis so when a lovely lady from their team emailed me to see if i'd like to try some of their vegan polishes... the answer was obvious.

Their entire Patent Shine collection is vegan as well as formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, camphor, ethyl tosylamide and xylene free.

Now, i'm no chemist and don't know what half of those are but i do like to go by the rule that if you can't pronounce it, you don't wanna wear or eat it.

I featured the nude color, Shop Girl, in last week's #manimonday but thought i'd do swatches for each since i know how much i rely on swatches when picking out colors. The swatch images are untouched so you get a clear idea of the true color and they're taken out of direct sunlight.

I used 2 coats of each.

Butter London Patent Shine 10X Lacquer in "Chat Up"

Butter London Patent Shine 10X Lacquer in "Over The Moon"

Butter London Patent Shine 10X Lacquer in "Shop Girl"

Butter London Patent Shine 10X Lacquer in "Her Majesty's Red"

The formula of these isn't like any i've used before... its somewhere between a gel and polish and applies like any other regular polish.

The problem i have with non-gel polish usually is that, once dry, it becomes fragile and due to natural movement in the nail itself, they chip and peel. I had none of this with these polishes because they seemed to move with my nail and remain softer even though they were hard-wearing.

You can read a little more about the benefits of these polishes here.

So onto the fun stuff, Butter London wanted to share the love with you guys too so they sent another 2 sets of these 4 beautiful polishes for me to give away to you!

I've posted a graphic on instagram so you can "regram" to enter and the rules will all be there, too.

Let me know which your favorite color is and happy entering, lovelies!

  1. I'm such a sucker for blues!!!! This blue is gorgeous. I've actually never tried Butter London but these sound and look amazing.

  2. Over the moon is dope as f#*k. In fact all these swatches look great. You are so right about swatches being a better representation of colour. This brand is sold in my health food shop so it may have to be my next beauty treat x

  3. Those are all beautiful but the blue is particularly lovely! Thank you so much for the chance to win!
