Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

The little bits of white lines and circles turned into a pretty layer over other colors, sort of snow flake-like or even like lace, but I personally found the white bits distracting and took the polish off after a few days. Yes, I am more of a classic dresser and so YMMV. Wil I wear it again? Sure, but it won't be in my regular rotation. One positive note: Butter London polishes stay ON my nails, which is something of a miracle in itself. I LOVE this brand!

      Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

      Having recovered from hypothyroid, adrenal fatigue, and metabolic issues I was shocked to learn that most nail polishes contain toluene, formaldehyde or dibutyl phthalate these chemicals are terrible for your health and disrupt your endocrine system. Biggies include Opi and Sally Hansen. A girly girl I didn't want to give up fancy nails so I was delighted to find Butter Nail polish which has none of those awful chemicals. It's a bit pricy but heck, it's a lot less than trying to regain your health.Trust me!!

      Normally I where nude and natural colors but something possessed me to go for bold this winter. It can look really classy. I picked out this polish thinking it was black but was pleasantly surprised to find out it is deep deep wine / black. It is perfect as I'm not really a black kind of person. : ) Now that I tried it straight, I'm going to use it as a dark color of an ombre. I love it and love Butter London

        I like to use it with Essie gel underneath makes for the perfect long lasting color. I'm hard on my nails, regular polish lasts me less than 1 day. And the evening of the fourth day I only have 1 small chip on each index finger.
