I have wanted to hop on the Butter London train for absolutely ages. They were really hard to get hold of in the UK for quite a long time, and after seeing the shade "brown sugar" all over the Web a couple of years ago I was really hankering for it. I unfortunately still don't have that colour but have finally made the leap and got 3 shades from Butter London that I picked up in Boots.
I blogged about the rose gold shade here, but I wanted to do an updated post now I have spent 2 weeks wearing the polishes. In my last post all I could really comment on was the colour because I had painted my nails for the post, but now I have worn another shade all over my nails for an entire week I can say that I really like the formula of the polish as well. It goes on nicely, you definitely need two coats to get a nice even opaque colour but the polish has really good staying power which is all you can really hope for from a higher priced polish. You don't want to fork out and then they chip straight away. The photo's below are my nails after one week of wear, the chipping is really minimal and I could get away with a few more days if I wanted to.
My only complaints are that it's quite pricey per bottle at £12 each and on top of that you get slightly less per bottle than other premium brands. Butter London holds 11ml per bottle whereas OPI have 15ml. The other little niggle I have is the packaging, although it looks pretty I found the lids really hard to get off and kept pulling off the main square bit to be left with just a little nodule see below pic to make more sense of my bad description. Has anyone else had this problem, or is that just how it's supposed to be? It just gives you a little less to grip when trying to paint.
My overall impression of the brand is good, I would buy again because they have gorgeous colours, I just wish they were a little bit cheaper to bring them in line with other brands. The colour featured here in case you're interested is Kerfuffle.
