Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic Swatch and Review

I think I may have found my new favourite polish! I’d like to introduce you to Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic.

Butter London Primrose Hill Picnic

This is my first Butter London polish – shocker, I know. I was originally avoiding the brand because it’s so expensive, especially in comparison to my beloved China Glaze polishes. I caved. I don’t regret it.

Butter London polishes retail for about $17.00 in Canada, for only 4oz of polish. I purchased mine at Holt Renfrew, but it’s also available at Nail Polish Canada.

This polish had a great formula, and dries quite quickly. After one coat it was opaque, but I went for two coats because I’m a perfectionist. I’ll admit the colour was a bit dull until I added a top coat, but that could just be my own personal preference of liking my nails super shiny. The colour isn’t as bright as my photo makes it out to be, take a look at the edges of my nails and that’s more true to what this colour looks like in real life.

I’m going to try and wear this polish until it starts to chip so I can test it’s staying power. Chips are never usually an issue for me because I change my nails every few days, but I’m sure you’d like to know how long this polish will last you if you’re going to spend $17.00 on it!
