      Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

      I pretty much only buy nail polish from Butter London, they are a great quality product and the colors are beautiful and go on very smoothly. It is pricey, but it's worth it to me because the bottle lasts you a while, and it doesn't bubble like cheaper products will. This color is the perfect nude shade. I've been looking for one like this for a long time.

        Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

        I tried this product because I felt it was advertised to stay on longer than the others that were similar to it. I was wrong. I like that it needs the base coat but within two days, it started to chip. For the price, I don't think it is worth it. The color selection is good, however.

            Have Macbeth on my nails now and love it. With the BL topcoat I'm on day 5 with no chips. Fun color for summer. I'd describe it as a bright orangie red.

                          Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

                          This is decent polish. I have the color Molly Coddled, a nice orchid purple shade. It wore quite well and I had very little wear on the tips of my nails and no chips in a week of wear. It did take two coats before it was nice and opaque and it seemed to dry pretty quickly. However, I'm not sure it's worth the price tag. I get similar results with Essie or Orly polishes and they are half the price. The Butter London colors are also quite limited. I bought this polish as an experiment to see whether it was in fact better than less expensive brands. And my conclusion is that no, this polish is not considerably better than these lesser brands. And the color range is far greater with Essie and Orly. But for those who are sensitive to chemicals (I'm not) this polish may be just what you're looking for. The fact that it doesn't contain the 5 traditionally harmful chemicals certainly doesn't affect its wearability. So that's why I'm giving it four stars.

                              One of my go-to colors for fall and winter. It comes out as an oxblood color on the nails; looks a little darker in the bottle. Application and smooth and fast. It drys fast too.

                              It chips a little after about 4 days on me but I get about 5-6 days of coverage that is acceptable and no staining of my nails after removal. I use the BL base and top coats and am usually clean dishes with gloves, but the nails still get the average wear with tapping on my computer all day and other household chores.
