Butter London Swatch Spam!! Pic heavy!!

Hello All,
Today I have some swatches of one my favorite brands.. butter London!! I picked up several of these during the Ulta buy two get one free sale! I also picked up a few on my birthday! Woo! Nothing says Happy Birthday like a trip to Ulta!

I am currently on a low/no buy at the moment, so I thought what better time than to trim down my untried's! I've gone from well over 50, down to just under 30! So expect some random swatch spam posts in the future! This is the first of them, I hope you all are ready for some amazing polishes!

Let's jump in shall we??

Onto the Swatches!

Mush!


     First up, we have Teddy Girl, this polish is an absolutely lovely light pink cream, that made my fingers look super tan! I have no filters or any adjustments on these pictures at all, that is really just the polish and my.. odd colored fingers!

Sadly, the application on this polish wasn't the greatest, it was rather thin and streaky and thick all at the same time! The below pictures are 4 coats and a top coat to even things out. But, I think it's worth it.. What do you think? It's such a gorgeous color! So bright and girly! I loved it, despite the tricky application.

     Next up we have Slapper, which is an amazing teal cream! This polish was amazing, it went on like a dream, two easy coats, and no top coat! This polish was super shiny on it's own! I really need to wear this again! I don't have anything like this in my collection, and I absolutely loved it!

Also, the polish leans more green than it does in the pictures. It is a true teal, however my camera was determined to make it blue! Gah! And sadly, I can't take any pictures outside, due to the fact, that the rain has come back! Oh well.. enjoy the lovely.. blueness..

   Up Next is Sprog, Which is a lovely periwinkle/lavender leaning cream! I loved this color! It's super unique and amazing! And lately, after all the glitter bombs and shimmers that I have been wearing, it feels super nice to put a nice cream back on my nails! Almost like slipping into your favorite sweatshirt!

The application on this was okay, it was a bit thin and streaky, but the third coat seemed to even it out perfectly! Sprog also leans a bit more purple than it does in the pictures below. Again, my camera kinda of had a fit when I was trying to photograph this!

        Next up we have Trustafarian. YAY for Holo's! It's odd, usually I don't like holo's, but lately, I've been on a Holo kick, it might have to do with the 3 months of sun that we had up here, (which is so weird, let me tell you, everything is all brown and gross, you would think we lived in the desert instead of the Pacific Northwest!) Or it might have to do with all the awesome Holo Polishes and butter London does an amazing holo!

Trustafarian is a beautiful light green holo. It's super light and amazing and.. it went on super perfectly, two easy coats to yummy holo-ey (Yes, I know that's not a word.) goodness!  Super amazing. I am sorry I don't know my scattered and linear holo's yet.. I'm still working on that! If anyone knows.. please let me know!

       Ahhh.. Dodgy Barnett, another amazing Holo! It's a Silver one! I don't have any silver Holo's and I was super happy to grab this one! My husband really liked it as well! This was also two coats to amazing holo-y goodness! Super smooth and easy application! You totally need this polish! And Trustafarian.. just sayin'.

   I have plans for this polish in the future.. involving striping tape!

    I think out of all of the polishes that I picked up in the past few weeks, this one has got to be the one I was most excited about, and I was uberly bummed that I didn't have it in time for my falling forward nail art challenge! This is butter London Shag!!

   Okay, so the name leaves a little bit to be desired.. but.. yeah..

   Name aside, this is the perfect polish for fall! It's an amazing coppery-orangey shimmery foil! (Woo! For super specific terms! Haha) This polish is amazing, it totally looks like fallen leaves, and it went on amazingly! Two easy coats of perfection and done!

     And last but certainly not least.. we have. Royal Navy! A Dark navy cream. To be honest, I was a little disappointed with this color. I had Revlon Royal on my nails when I was in Ulta, and I was comparing it to Royal Navy and they looked similar.

  Sadly, once I got it on though it looked nothing like Royal! Sad!

But still an amazing color! And it went on like a dream, two easy coats!

  8. I am so jealous you got Royal Navy- I couldn't find it! Instead I got Slapper and Artful Dodger. I got Dodgy Barnett and Trustafarian awhile ago and Trustafarian has to be one of my all time favorite holos! Great pics!
