Butter London Hen Party Nail Polish
Nails - April 15th, 2011

I needed to add something to a Beauty.com order to get free shipping, so I decided to try a new (to me) brand of nail polish. I purchased a butter London nail polish in the color Hen Party. It seems to be a hit around here!

butter LONDON seems to be based out of Seattle, which is cool (sort of local…) and are “3 Free” and High Fashion. Hen Party is described as a sheer opal lacquer. It looks very work-friendly, which is why I ordered it. The packaging has its pluses and minuses. I like the thinner shape, it has a smaller footprint that a square bottle (important if you have to store a LOT of nail polis). The lid consists of an outer plastic lid, and an inner screw-on lid. I can appreciate that the outer lid looks nice, but I personally think it’s just an excessive waste of plastic.

My sister gamely volunteered to paint her nails with it and be my hand model – her hands are prettier than mine! (I posed her on one of her textbooks, lol, because I liked the bird.) The polish went on very evenly, with only two coats needed for a perfect milky opalescent look. It’s great! So far it seems to be wearing really well, with a single layer of topcoat.

Overall, I’m digging my butter LONDON nail polish, and really need to get off my lazy butt and paint my own nails with it. Would I buy more? These little suckers aren’t cheap ($14 a bottle) but I like the formula. So, I probably would, there are some other pale colors that look good (Cream Tea, Pearly Queen, Teddy Girl) and I’m kind of obsessed with pale colors right now!

    I reeeally need to try these. I think next week is the release date for their Royal Wedding commemorative, which looks like a very pretty greyed blue-lavender. Supposedly they sell at Nordstrom and Ulta but I haven’t seen them there yet?

    I keep seeing this nail polish mentioned all over. I must try it. This color is really pretty.

  3. Beautiful nails. Beautiful shiny color.
