Butter London Nail Polish

Review and Giveaway: Butter London Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquers

August 6, 2015

Butter London 10x PatentThese Butter London Patent Shine 10x nail polishes ($18 each) have been released for a while now, but I’ve finally had the nails to really test them out. Essentially, these are some of the leaders of the trend toward high-coverage, high-shine, long-wearing nail polishes that offer the convenience of a gel application without the equipment (or the difficulty of removal).  According to the line, this line offers:

1. Long-wear for up to 10 days
2. Shock absorbing & chip-resistant
3. Salon colour coverage
4. Gel-like cushion and superior shine
5. Fade-resistant colour
6. Formulated to smooth nails
7. Formulated to Strengthen nails
8. Prevents breakage and peeling
9. Visibly brighter, more radiant nails
10. No formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, DBP, toluene, camphor, ethyl tosylamide, or xylene

These are available in a full range of shades at Nordstrom.com, SephoraUlta, Beauty.com, Macys.com. When Butter London sent me these four polishes for review, they included two additional sets of these four colors. I’m happy to give them away–just use the form, below. All photos are taken with two coats, no topcoat or base coat. What you see is what you’ll get.

Butter London Chat UpButter London Chat Up is a medium blue cream that has excellent coverage in two coast.

Butter London Her Majesty's RedButter London Her Majesty’s Red is a beautiful searing red. You can see some nail lines through this two-coat application, a third coat would have erased that.

Butter London Shop GirlButter London Shop Girl is a light cool opaque nude cream. Light colors are tough–usually I find that these are too sheer. In this case, Butter London Shop Girl hide my nail lines, applied smoothly and well in two coats. To me, this is an impressive feat. It’s rare to find an opaque light nude that applies this smoothly.  Although not as high-shine as the others, Shop Girl does give a soft shine.

butter london over the moon 2Butter London Over the Moon was my favorite of the group. This gray-green seaweed color is unusual, neutral and flattering. I’m going to love this during the winter. Overall, I love this Butter London formula. I’ve found the application easy (even in the wee hours of the morning, as I check through email). It’s durable, opaque and gorgeous. Excellent work!

If you’d like a chance to win a set of these four (4) polishes, please enter your comment/information in the form, below. I have two (2) sets that I’ll be giving away from this form. This is a very short time frame–the give-way period starts tonight at midnight and ends on Sunday, August 9th at 11:59 p.m (all times are Eastern). This give-away is limited to U.S. residents.

    I’ve recently discovered the wonders that are Butter London polishes. OMG soooo nice! Definitely an upgrade from my Essie ones. I didn’t know about the patent shine ones though. Will have to check them out.

  • Corinne August 7, 2015 at 12:15 am

    Wow, these are gorgeous colors! I especially like the chat up shade, as blue tones are my favorite for nail polish, but I can see why you like the over the moon color too. Thanks for a great giveaway!

  • Susan August 7, 2015 at 2:13 am

    Chat Up is such a beautiful blue! I’m curious how they wear and last.

  • Collar Wilson August 7, 2015 at 2:35 am

    I’m not sure if my entry “took”, but just wanted to say I’ve always been very pleased with Butter London polishes! Great colors and smooth application – I take the colors I have to my manicurist for her to apply (spoiled rotten, I am!).

    While the polishes I tend to wear are usually a bit more neutral, the colors you’ve swatched look really intriguing. Plus I’m for anything that resists chipping.

    I love Butter London! I don’t always wear nail polish, I don’t have that many. But the few Butter Londons that I have are the best in my collection. Thank you for doing this giveaway 🙂

  • Trish M August 8, 2015 at 9:43 am

    Oh so pretty and shiney! And wears for how many days? I’m forever looking for the longest wearing polish I can find- I’m really lazy about changing my nail polish. Nice giveaway- Thanks!

    I really enjoyed your recent Paris posts and will definitely refer to them on my next visit.

  • Bonny McDevitt August 8, 2015 at 5:07 pm

  • Kayley August 9, 2015 at 1:14 am

    Thanks for the giveaway! I have problems with my finger nail polish flaking quickly, so this lacquer line sounds like a great solution. My favorite of all the colors would probably be Ta-Ta! and my favorite of the ones you wore was Over the Moon (same as you.)

  • Debbie Clauer August 9, 2015 at 11:11 am

    Hello! The colors of this polish are beautiful!

  • Marilyn Nawara August 9, 2015 at 7:02 pm

    Hello — you have terrific looking nails!

  • Jennifer Stewart August 9, 2015 at 7:10 pm

    I am a huge fan of Butter London! I can’t wait to try this new formula.

  • Heather G August 9, 2015 at 8:22 pm

    Wow, apart from the fact there are some gorgeous colors, these have some amazing claims too. I’m particularly intrigued by the “gel-like cushion and superior shine” and “fade-resistant color”. Also it would be amazing to have a polish that’s actually formulated to smooth and strengthen AND give visibly brighter, more radiant nails. Could any of this actually be real!? lol Nonetheless, very pretty line.

    • Heather G August 9, 2015 at 8:23 pm

      oops, my Rafflecopter name is Rosie A

  • Hannah August 9, 2015 at 8:59 pm

    Love the red! Such a pretty color.

  • Mary August 9, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    Those look lovely! I’m impressed shop girl went on so well as good nudes are hard to find–I hate having to spend time on many coats. And Over the Moon is just so unique! I can definitely see it becoming a fall staple.

Thank you for the opportunity. <3
