    Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

    This color was not true to what was pictured, or even what it looks like when you have the bottle in hand. I had to put on about 5 coats in order for it to stop being so light. Dry time was ridiculously long also, painted my nails during a movie and even an hour and half later they still were not dry. Additionally two days later went to the airport and somewhere the polished got chipped in the middle of my nail. Was expecting so much out this polish.

    The color of this Butter London polish is lovely, and the application is nice and even. But it chipped fairly easily - much faster than other polishes I've used. I probably would not buy again.

      Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

      I LOVE nail polish. Sadly I'm super rough on my hands and unless I have a gel manicure it's already chipped the next day, sometimes the same day. I have been wearing this nail polish for days now with no chipage (I didn't even put a top coat on) and I adore the color. Yay!

        Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

        I love Butter London Nail Polish. The colors are gorgeous, unique, and long-lasting. The formula is easy to apply and fast-drying. I can't comment on length of wear because I have soft nails that are really resistant to nail polish, but these seem a bit longer than most for me. My only complaint is that I wish they'd use a wide brush instead of the little thin one. This colour is heavenly! I am always drawn to blue-green colours in this range.

          Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

          I bought Butter London because it is a healthier option than most. $15 a bottle makes it on the pricey side. It is as long lasting as most other commercial polish, not better, not worse. This color - Doily - is a nude color with glitters in different shapes and sizes. I found this color perfect because 1) nude color is classy, 2) I like glitter and this is a subtle glitter not a crazy high school girls' glitter, and 3) nude + glitter combo makes it way less noticeable when chips happen. I will buy it again when I finsh this bottle, even when it is not cheap.
