Amor de Lacquer: butter LONDON’s Holiday collection

Although I haven’t reviewed many of their polishes, I am reallllly loving what Butter London has to offer. Formula-wise, these babies are phenomenal. butter LONDON and Founding Creative Director Nonie Creme are giving us three beauty limited edition shades for the holiday season.

Tart With a Heart is described as the life of the party in dazzling “liquid metal” rose pink. I concur. This is a ridiculously awesome pink chrome. I don’t have many chrome polishes and this one has my heart jumping for joy. It is such an unexpected holiday shade. I love it!

Fairy Lights is described as a pale pink parade of glitter carries a dash of grey to tone down the sugar and ramp up the spice. This polish is opaque at 3 coats and has a gorgeous holographic shimmer. It will also work great as a layering polish and really pops with a top coat.

The Black Knight is described as a dark dazzler with a glitter fusion contains black, pink, blue and silver suspended in a black base. You HAVE to see this in person. It was opaque after only 2 coats and it is one stunning glitter. The pink and blue shimmer pop beautifully. This may be one of my favorite nail polish colors of 2011.

butter LONDON’s price point at $14 is pretty steep and if you don’t want to splurge on all of those babies, definitely go for Black Knight. Or you can get grab butter LONDON Holiday Glitter Trio for $36 at

    FYI if you buy Butter London off the Nordstrom website it’s free shipping even if you just buy one polish!
    I really love this brand!

  • Butter London is one of my favorite brands. Like the glitter polish so much I have a collection of it!

  • I love the Tart with a Hart… really pretty color… so holiday glam!

  • Such lovely colors, I want all of them :D. I should definitely look up this brand.

  • Cinnie

    Tart with a Heart would look putrid on my (pale olive) skin, but on yours it is freaking gorgeous.

    The Black Knight is rocking me– the shine is fab. Some glitters have that bumpy scratchy finish, but the gloss on that pwns.

    Feeling meh on the Fairy Lights but maybe layered on a color it would be better?

    • Brittany

      Great use of the word putrid, Cin but I totally disagree. I think TWAH would look great on you. And yeah, Fairy Lights would definitely work as a layering shade. It’s just “okay” on its own.

  • I love the colors! They are all beautiful. The price is a bit too steep for me for just nail polish, though. I would try to find a dupe in a local drugstore.

    I need The Black Night! It’s so gorgeous!

  • Oh, I need Black Knight! I wish I wasn’t such a sucker for glitters

    • Brittany

      You and me booooth. I LOVE glitters.

  • I’m dying to try butter London polishes, there just a bit pricey! but I have heard such wonderful things about them!

  • Amy

    Zappos has free shipping for this nail polish as well. I just ordered The Black Knight. Can’t wait!
