Good morning all!
Today I’ve got Butter London’s new fall 2009 collection called Fashionista’s Favourites. It’s made up of five new colors, and one particularly stunning green…
The formula on these is thick, as all Butter London polishes are. This can make them a little hard to work with. The key with these is to really make sure each coat is dry before you apply the next one or you will wind up with globs of polish at the tips, and cuticle drag.
One great thing about this collection is that it has the new bottle tops! YES they finally listened to our complaints and made the rectangle top so that you can pull it off, and use a “normal” round wand. Check it out below.
Pearly Queen is a pale pearl white shimmer. I actually really like this color, though it’s not my “norm”. This was two coats.
Scoundrel is a lavender creme that’s a bit muted. I really like this one also, though I feel like I have a bunch of colors very similar. This was two coats.
Minger is a pumpkin orange creme. I don’t know why but I LOVE this orange! And it’s not very common for me to love a warm orange, but somehow this is just the right tone. This was two coats.
Rosie Lee is a rose gold glitter with clear base. I love the glitter in this, it’s so pretty and unique. This was three thick coats for maximum coverage.
British Racing Green is a dark emerald green shimmer. Love it. What else can I say, it’s not too dark, not too light, and just the right amount of shimmer. It’s not like other greens I own. This was two coats.
Overall I like this collection, and would give it a B if I had to grade it. The stand out colors for me are Minger, Rosie Lee, and British Racing Green.
These should be available this week on their website here, and they are $14.00 each or $45.00 for all five.
What do you guys think, worth it?
