(Some of the colors featured in today’s post have been sent to me for review. Some of them were purchased by my self when I was able to find them from my little town!)

Artful Dodger from butter LONDON is one of my very favorite nail polish colors. The fact that it is from butter London only makes me love it all the more. Yes, I have a thing for the brand. Not only is their formula, brushes, bottle design, dry time, and unique colors one of the best out there, but I love the fact that BL is a cruelty free company. Not only are they a cruelty free company but so are their suppliers. I do not think that fact is one that is talked about enough.
I could not pick just one color as a favorite from butter LONDON so I will show you the rest of my “Top 5 (or 8) Favorites”






FINAL THOUGHTS: on butter LONDON “My Top 5 Favorites”: I don’t own a whole lot of BL brand but the colors I do have are unique to my other brands/colors. I do own a lot of nail polish and for the most part, if there is a color I like from ABC nail polish company, I can usually find a close enough dupe from XYZ nail polish company. I appreciate their unique colors, and I admire their choice as a company to be cruelty free. The retail price is $15 per bottle, but I have seen sales, usually at Nordstrom.
Well worth the price, IMO.
Have you tried butter LONDON ? What do you think? Which is your favorite color?

πŸ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!>

This is a new series I will be doing each Monday. Each month I have been naming a polish of the month, but that’s about as far as I’ve got, with this new series every Monday I will highlight one of my favorites from that brand.

Primrose Hill Picnic was sent to me as a PR sample for review.. It is a straight up cream finish, these pictures are with 3 coats instead of my usual 2, because there was a bit of VNL with only 2 coats. The formula is classic butter LONDON smooth, easy to apply. I like consistency in formulas in a brand, one of the reason I like butter LONDON so well. I think you can see from the picture that I have used about half the bottle of Primrose Hill Picnic, it truly is one of my favorites.

Primrose Hill Picnic looks great on long nails as well as shorter nails. It is an all year round color. Their is no ‘season’ for this polish. And, as I mentioned in a previous post butter LONDON has the Leaping Bunny Logo on the bottle of all their products. Another reason this is a favorite of mine. I give Primrose Hill Picnic 5/5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
You can find butter LONDON products at Ulta, Nordstrom and on butter London’s website website. Butter London retails for $15 but often times they are on sale buy 2 get 1 free, which brings the price down to $10 per bottle. Well worth it at any price.
I have been going through my collection looking for something similar to Primrose Hill Picnic the closest I have come to is Lady Luck from Wet n Wild Wild Shine. It is a bit more pink, maybe more on the red side. Also, very close in color from OPI is “You’re a Pisa Work from the Euro Colletion. Considering I have a lot of pink polish I think it’s fair to say Primrose Hill Picnic is a pretty unique color on its own.
Butter London finished 9th in my Nail Polish by Brand comparison study I did last summer. If you remember I tried well,over 60 brands of polish, so I think #9 is a great showing.

How pretty is this combination? I am in love with this polish! This is from Butter London. I was sent the Primrose Hill Picnic and Trout Pout along with the Lippy to match. You all know how much I love my half and half manicures, these two colors were meant to be together this way. You also know I am in love with the trend of matching lips to nails. Butter London has made that an easy look to accomplish with their Lippy. The Lippy is an exact match to the nails. So pretty, I cannot stop looking! And then with the Primrose Hill Picnic Lippy? It’s too much. I am in love with myself today!πŸ™‚



I must say these pictures turned out pretty good with the lilacs in the background. I love when the lilacs are in bloom.
I uploaded a You Tube video about these gorgeous polishes. Watch it here:
My You Tube Video Butter London
The video pretty much covers it all, but you have to agree with me, this is the prettiest combination I’ve come up with yet! One reason why I love Butter London is they have such great colors. It seems like I keep buying the same colors over and over. I have at least 4 bottles of the smoky, brown grey color that is so popular, 6 bottles of virtually the same color brown, I don’t know how many bottles of pink, mint, or blue polish I have. But, when you go to the Butter London website and see all those colors, they are all so different from anything else I have. For instance, there is a color called “Artful Dodger” that is a turquoise blue. But it is also a little smoky, a little ‘dirty’, not like any other turquoise blue you’ve seen. But all their colors are like that. They are beautiful but they have a little something different.. And for me, different is good!
Have you tried Butter London, or the Lippy? What do you think? Have you gone to their website? I just love looking at all those pretty bottles, such great colors. I want them all! You can check out the colors here : Butter London

Thanks so much for stopping by!


In my previous post I confessed to you my newest obsession, wearing matching lipstick and nail polish, old school style. This is something I have been thinking about for quite sometime. As you all know I have given up buying any new nail polish during lent, so you can imagine my delight when I came across the bottle of Teak Rose polish, knowing I had a tube of Teak Rose lipstick somewhere.

Stay with me, I do have some exciting news to get to-
As I also stated in my previous post I have searched the Internet for matching polish and lipsticks, with no results. Even the Revlon site didn’t have a section to match up their products. Last night though, late, I was looking at new nail polish, because it’s only a week left of lent, and I thought I would get a head start on my new purchases. I went to Butter LONDON’s site because I’d heard they were having a sale. I must be too late for the sale, but guess what I found? That’s right matching lipsticks for their nail polish colors! cue the singing angels!
This makes me very happy. It makes me happy for so many different reasons, but mostly because I like the colors from Butter LONDON and maybe the matchy-matchy thing won’t be so old school after all! Maybe I will be hip and ahead of the trend! Oh yea!

I tried to order on their website but when my order didn’t go through I sent an email. I received a reply this morning from Lauren and she said they are available at Ulta right now, and will be available on the website starting in April. The nearest Ulta store for me is about 225 miles away, so I guess I will be waiting until April. That’s when lent ends, right? Woo Hoo!

What do you guys think? Do you like the trend, will you try it? Which Butter LONDON duo will you be picking up? I already have Teddy Girl polish, I’m crazy about Yummy Mummy, love Primrose Hill Picnic, dying to try Snog and of course Trout Pout is perfect for this summer of corals. I guess that’s all of them! πŸ™‚
