NOTD: Butter London's Yummy Mummy

I recently picked up 3 Butter London nail polishes from Oz Sale for $14 AUD per bottle (gasp!). This was my first experience with this brand that seems to be a bit "trendy" at the moment.

I have to say the formula on each one (I'll be posting swatches of the other 2 in due course) was fine but there was nothing 'special' for me to justify their price. The packaging was nice, formula decent and each shade was opaque with 3 coats. Good solid performers but then so is Rimmel, if you get my drift. However if you see a colour that you think is special though, and this really goes for any range, pay for it every time :)

 While this shade did have shimmer in it (as you can see from the picture above), it was not visible once the polish was applied. I'm still not sure if I am disappointed with that though - do we do sparkle grey-beige-stone colours? All pictures here are with 3 coats in natural sunlight and without a top coat.

This colour reminds me of FOA's Foxy Roxy and if I am completely blunt, I preferred that over this one although this is a perfectly nice, work appropriate colour. Wow even as I am writing this I realise I am just underwhelmed by my Butter London experience.

Surely they must have some killer shades - anyone?


  1. I really love it! It reminds me of chocolate milk! :-p

  2. I actually quite like this colour, and I am not really a fan of the beige/browns. Saying that I probs won't go out and buy it, but I do like it. that is me definitely sitting on the fence haha

  3. Hey Vintage - It is totally a chocolate milk colour. Hmmmm.... now I want some lol.

    Tegan - This definitely is a nice colour but just IMO not unique and not OMG I must have it either. You enjoy your fence sitting too ;)

  4. Pretty colour and the name is cute too :)
    Butter London Trout Pout is my favourite colour of theirs. I always get complimented on it when I wear it.
    If the colour is pretty, there is no price too high ;)

  5. December issue of Madison magazine has this as a freebie! This and Trout Pout to choose from! I'm stumped as to which to get :)) This shade looks nice on you! very safe, with one coat I guess. Thanks for the swatch! x
