    Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

    My 4 year old daughter loves having her toenails done but she's 4 and wiggles around alot. She chose our first bottle of Butter Nail Polish and we both loved it! Now, the pedicure fairly visits her in her sleep and she loves waking up to new polished toes! It's long lasting and doesn't chip. It's worth every penny.

    Long-lasting!

    By Micki73

    from Wisconsin

    Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

    I am very hard on my nails, and this brand went a full 7 days without chipping. On the 8th day, I finally started seeing little chips. I am truly impressed. I got Knackered, which is a gorgeous iridescent sheer. After 2 coats, it looked great. It dried quickly, too. I did use a base and top coat. That should be a given, but I know some people skip those steps, so I wanted to be clear. Also, I love that this formula is thick. I had no mess applying the polish. It's easier to control application when it's not so runny. Yes, it's kind of expensive, but the quality makes it worthwhile. Definitely recommended!!

      I'm completely obsessed with this red. It's not to blue red with that weird undertone. And it's not that harsh red almost orange. It's red, a true London red. I love it.

              I loved the color it looks great with anything and it's different. However it takes a while to dry and without a top coat it chips easily, but I take that chance because the formula and color are amazing

                I bought this in Union Jack Black and I am obsessed with it. The pigment was super saturated and I only needed two coats to get that deep black I was going for. It went on smoothly and stayed on for about a week before I needed to touch it up. I love this stuff

                Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

                I buy the color All Hail the Queen, but the color is not the same from bottle to bottle. I have to take my original bottle and compare to what they have and try to pick the one closest to the shade I like. This is the only drawback. Otherwise, the color lasts a long time and you get a lot more uses then regular nail polishes.
