Monday Mani: butter LONDON Nail Lacquer

I really like butter LONDON polishes and I was therefore really excited to see that they came as gift with purchase with this month's issue of In Style. I like the magazine and usually buy it anyways, but this month I needed both issues. I got Pillar Box Red and Pink Ribbon. They are both gorgeous shades, especially Pillar Box Red. A good red polish is hard to find but butter London has done it for me.


As usual, these polishes are 3 Free and contain no nasties. Much better for your nails and the environment. I also find the brush really good and it is easy to hold thanks to the ribbed lid.
Because I wanted to test both colours at once I did a mixed polish and I really liked the result. Whilst in the future I would prefer pairing Pillar Box Red with a stronger colour (think green for Christmas), and Pink Ribbon is a fantastic French Manicure shade, for now I am enjoying my mix of pink and red.
Mike's BFF didn't love the combination and said that it looked like two of my nails had fallen off and that I was due to see the "nail polish person" again. It made me laugh so much and I love how boys have their own view of beauty. They rarely like anything out of the norm and I like switching things up to make sure I don't get bored.

How often do you do mixed manis? Have you tried butter LONDON before?

  1. Thanks for letting me know about the freebie. Going to pick up that magazine now.

    Last week I got a giftcard from my uni for the bookshop and spent it on butter LONDON polishes. Plus as a member of the Co-op bookshop, they were discounted to $17.50.

    Would you be able to do a Nail Polish collection post?
