I got my butter LONDON fall polishes a day early today, it was like Christmas in September! As promised earlier, I have now swatched them all. Showers have not been taken, floors have not been vacuumed and dishes have not been done all in order to bring these to you gentle reader, as fast as possible. My reviews are beneath each picture. Enjoy!
Cream Tea – Natural lighting
My first impression was…hot streaky mess! It’s a very light “marshmallowy” white/cream color and applies a bit thick (this is 3 coats pictured). I actually thought the color itself was very flattering on my skin and pretty, but the streaks made it unwearable for me. Having said that, I didn’t have any type of base coat on, so maybe if I try again that would help.
Swinger – Natural lighting
This is a very sheer polish, it took 3 coats to get it to bottle color. The color is hard to describe, it’s a cross between a very pale gold and silver. It looks shimmery in the bottle but actually has a metallic finish. I don’t love metallics so this one won’t be in my regular rotation. The application was much smoother and easier to apply than Cream Tea though.
HRH – Natural lighting
Instant love! This color is 50% of the reason I bought this entire collection to begin with and I am not disappointed! Very nice application and it only needed 2 coats. It’s gorgeous royal purple with lots of shimmer. I will be wearing this one A LOT this fall!
Chimney Sweep – Natural lighting
Love at first coat! I love this deep shimmery gray, but then you knew I would didn’t you? This too went on smooth as butta with no problems. I have 3 coats on here. Later on I will be doing comparison swatches to both Lippmann’s Hit Me With Your Best Shot and CND’s Hyde in the Park since they all look similar, but I suspect there are fine differences!

Chancer – Natural lighting
Holy thick red glitter Batman! This one is VERY thick and gloppy, extremely hard to apply. However, if blingy red is your thing, then this won’t disappoint. I put (slopped?) on 3 coats and had to do a Seche top coat since it’s very dull on it’s own. The color really is very pretty, but not subtle. It reminds me of Dorothy’s ruby slippers in The Wizard of Oz.
Vamp it up!
