butter London Holiday 2012 and Nordstrom Exclusive Nail Lacquer Swatches & Review

Recently I was at Nordstrom and came across a butter London nail lacquer display. My eyes didn’t know where to look first! There were quite a few shades I hadn’t seen before and I was totally enamored with a few of them.

Turns out one of them was brand new from their holiday collection (Scuppered) and the other two are Nordstrom exclusives (Two Fingered Salute and Stag Do). So I snatched ‘em up!


Scuppered, Two Fingered Salute, Stag Do


Scuppered

Butter London Scuppered
Scuppered

Scuppered is one of the new shades from their holiday 2012 collection. This is a unique shade and pretty amazing in person especially. It’s an opaque shimmery copper base with gold and pink micro-glitter and larger green glitter pieces. Love me some copper especially when mixed with other interesting glittery pieces. This was just two coats.


Two Fingered Salute

Two Fingered Salute

Two Fingered Salute is a dusty mint green base with heavy rose gold and copper micro-glitter. UM WHAT!?! I can’t believe I somehow missed getting this earlier! Again it’s a unique shade and super, super cool looking. Love it. This was just two coats.


Stag Do

Stag Do

Stag Do is a deep somewhat greyed out murky green with subdued lighter green shimmer. This one is a it more subtle and mellow. It’s murkiness makes it look a little boring in low lighting. But the way it looks in good lighting is really nice. I like it a lot, but it’s not as cool as the other two I don’t think. Great creamy formula though, just two coats.

Availability: Two Fingered Salute and Stag Do are at Nordstrom only. Scuppered you can find at Nordstrom or butter London.

Pricing: $14.00 for 0.4 oz.

What do you think about these three? Anything you might be picking up?

    Oh, I like Two-Fingered Salute! Somehow reminds me of old porcelain vases. Hmhhh.

      Isn’t it so pretty?

    Ahh I still die for Two Fingered Salute! It’s dupe-y of RBL Halcyon and just absolutely gorgeous.

    Your nails are looking great btw! I’ve always liked your shape :).

      Thanks! I already filed them down a bit from that photo because they seemed SO long for me, haha. They’re pretty square at the moment…

    Two Fingered Salute looks like a flashier version of RBL’s Halcyon. Super pretty!

    • October 22, 2012

      I don’t have that one, glad I have this one though!

    Oooh! I love Stag Do & Two Fingered Salute! While Scuppered is unique, I think it’s too much of a mish-mash. :/

    • October 22, 2012

      Yeah it is a little all over the place!

    Oh these look wonderful on you! I just got Two Fingered Salute last week. Now I’m kicking myself I didn’t pick up the other two.

    • October 22, 2012

      You still have time, haha ;)

    I like the random glitter particles in Scuppered!

    • October 22, 2012

      Yeah I really like that about it also.

  • October 22, 2012

    Oh my, Butter London makes such interesting nail polishes! I think Scuppered is very cool, but it might be too warm for me. For some reason copper is not that easy of a color for me to wear!

      It’s funny, I feel that way about silver on me now. Used to be my fav “metal” shade now it’s my least favorite.

  • October 22, 2012

    Two Fingered Salute is amazing! look at the pinkflashes! oh-OH, I completely understand what you mean by “enamored”!

    I think 2 Fingered is similar idea to RBL Halcyon, but really not the same at all. Halcyon is a darker, more sage base with a deeper colored shimmer… I will skip this one since I am happy with the RBL, and lighter greens tend to wash out on my paleness. Love Scuppered’s crazy mish mash. Reminds me so much of OPI Shim-Merry Chic, which I already have, so I am trying to restrain myself on that one. Now Stag-do is another story. I had just bought Revlon Topspeed After Party and immediately returned after seeing the shimmer in this. So chic and subtle- I am in love! Must have this one and also Jack the Lad. Are these Limited Edition on the Holiday colors? I don’t want to miss them.

  • October 22, 2012

    Two Fingered Salute is my favorite polish of the year! I paid full price for it too! (I usually only buy BL when there is some kinda sale)

    I kinda wish I haden’t bought Scuppered though. As much as I like the color, once its on my fingers, and away from my face, it looks just like OPI’s Warm and Fozzie expet with green glitter. Oh well!

    I know Two Fingered Salute is the favorite and it’s amazing, but I just love Scuppered. I need to head out and snatch it up! The bright green with the pink and brown is so pretty.

    To be honest, I actually don’t like any of these :) I don’t know why, but just not feeling it.. I’ve ordered Fishwife, Jack the Lad, Fiddlesticks, and Scallywag. Looking forward to recieving them in the mail! :) Swatches are gorgeous, as always :) Take care xx

  • October 22, 2012

    Scuppered is just so gorgeous and so me! Thank you for swatching these, Kelly, even though my wallet hates you now. ;)

    O.O Whoa! Scuppered and Two Finger Salute are amazing!!! It’s so strange…I used to be a cool toned only kind of girl for so long, always choosing silver over gold, never wearing any warm tones…but I have totally changed! I think my change in hair color is partially responsible but I absolutely love coppers, golds, ambers, and other warm colors now that I would have never worn in the past. Scuppered is blowing my mind! And so is Two Finger Salute! Both so unique and beautiful! I hope these hit the Ulta near me soon because I would love to be able to buy them in person. If not, nothing wrong with a little nail mail. ;D I think these are must-haves for sure! <3

  • October 23, 2012

    These colors are freakin’ amazing and I would love to pick them up soon.

    I´ve yet to see any BL that tempts me to spend the hefty $14 a bottle, and none of these are an exception. They´re nice, but nothing I´ll be saving up for.
