I've heard about butter london a lot, but never tried it. I'm trying to be a bit more money conscious so buying polishes that go over 10 dollars is a bit of a stretch on my budget. But thanks to nbmarketplace (an online marketplace that specifically trades/sells/buys nail polishes at a reasonable price among MUA members) I had a chance to get my hands on a color called Queen Vic.
It's a beautiful creamy cranberry color with no glitters in it. My choice of finishing is, and most probably always will be, cream. I love cream over any other finishes and this polish DELIVERS!
Compared to other popular brands (OPI, china glaze, essie, zoya, etc), I think Butter London polish applies a little above average. I wasn't wowed about the application and how the polish spread out. However, I think the drying time was extremely fast with minimal hassle. When I apply polishes like OPI, I would usually have to wait quite a while to build up and get my nails completely dry, but butter london worked like magic.
Packaging wise, I like it. The flat rectangle shape is held easily in the hand and the cap isn't a twist cap like typical polishes. The top comes off and another twist top is revealed (much like Chanel polishes).
Also, I was wondering what 3 free nail meant and here's what it means.
All in all, I love the nail polish and I would buy all in the collection IF I had the money to do so. 14 dollars price tag isn't easy on the wallet. So, application, pigmentation, bottle shape and fast drying is a double thumbs up, but the expensive price tag is a huge stopper.
