My Butter London Collection and Swatches (and Butter London Sale Information)

Butter London is a favorite nail polish brand of mine. Its biggest downside is definitely the price - a bottle retails for $15 a pop. Fortunately, you can almost always find them for much, much cheaper. Nordstrom Rack always has some shades in stock for less than $8 apiece and Butter London themselves run some really great sales. I always stock up on my most wanted shades during their Friends and Family 30% off sale. I've amassed almost my entire collection through these means. You're essentially a fool if you pay full price for Butter London. If you want to be a smarty pants like me, now's your chance. You have an opportunity to grab their polishes half off for their last call sale - go here to order these majorly gorgeous polishes for cheap before they disappear for good.

If you need some inspiration, here's my collection. I'm crazy in love with almost every single shade. I especially recommend any glitter polishes they offer. The glitter is fine and very sparkly and the finished texture is smooth. Check them out below.

Here they are in the drawer of my Helmer. I love the way these store. They're slim and sturdy and their square shape makes it easy to section them off from other polish brands.

Here's a view from the side. Their square black tops lift off to reveal a smaller, rounded handle that's easier to work with.

Blagger is probably the stand alone polish that I wouldn't recommend. It's nothing special and I'm kind of annoyed I spent any kind of money on it. You could easily get something just as good from a drugstore.

Of the sale polishes lot, I highly recommend Fiddlesticks, No More Waity Katie, Scallywag and Gobsmacked. Fiddlesticks is really unexpectedly rich and vibrant on the nail - it looked kind of similar to an old Hard Candy polish when I first saw it in the bottle it but I was really bowled over by how unique and gorgeous it is on. Scallywag and Gobsmacked are both densely packed, sparkly glitters that allow you to easily achieve an opaque look. They're both really eye catching. Lastly, I love No More Waity Katie as a kind of demure looking glitter. I really just love the name alone - I paid full price for mine around the time of Will and Kate's wedding just for the novelty of it all.

I also highly recommend Slapper. It's one of my favorite polishes of all time. It's an almost florescent turquoise. I have to stop myself from wearing it exclusively in the summer. I'm kind of pleased it's not included in the sale because I'm sure I'll have to buy a second bottle at some point and I don't want it disappearing from my life. Wallis is gorgeous as well - it's a really antiqued looking greenish gold - and I don't have anything else even remotely close to it in my collection.

Take a look at the sale and add to your collection. All of my lemmings have sold out, luckily for my bank account. I'm really like a person on a cleanse or a diet who bakes a cake for other people to eat it with this post. Snatch up your half off Butter Londons by 11:59 PST on Janurary 23!
