butter LONDON Victoriana

Today's post is my first butter LONDON swatch! Yesterday I asked people on the CN Facebook if they could guess what polish I was wearing just from the description, and Krissi successfully guessed it! I was wearing Victoriana, which is an amazing blue-teal with a very distinct silver shimmer.


I had been wanting this polish for quite some time, and I finally caved and bought it at Ulta recently. It is my first and only butter LONDON... so far! :) I had heard great things about their polish formula. I couldn't believe it when I tried it for myself! The polish applied like a dream. This swatch is two coats, and it cooperated so well that I didn't even have to do any clean up on this manicure.


The shimmer in this polish is very pronounced, and it gives the polish a really cool textured effect. It sort of looks metallic from a distance, and then when you look at it closer, the speckles really add a lot of visual interest.


Here is a close up of the polish so you can get a good idea as to what the silver bits look like and how they work.


butter LONDON nail polish is sold at Ulta and retails for $14. I've also seen it at Dillard's, and they actually had some colors that weren't at Ulta, too!

  4. That was MY very first Butter London too, and it is indeed amaaaaazing. Lady Muck is really nice as well -- it has a similar silver-flecked finish, though it's not as dramatic as Victoriana since the base color is a very pale blue-grey and has much less contrast with the shimmer bits. Both are just super!
