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?
