butter LONDON Summer 2013 Swatches & Review!

Press Sample
Hello again lovelies! I have a special post for you this afternoon! butter LONDON just announced their Summer 2013 collection this morning and I have swatches for you!

Honestly, when I first saw this collection 'Summer' didn't really come to mind.. but I get what they're trying to go for. Bronze, Sunkissed & Beachy. I have a LOT to say and show you so let's get started!

Poole - Robin's egg blue cream. Not the most unique in the collection, but if you're a blue gal and LOVE your cream polishes, this one is for you! Application wasn't too bad. The first coat was a bit streaky but by the time the second coat went on, everything smoothed out just fine! 

Sunbaker - Rust orange shimmer. This one is BY FAR the best one in this 6 piece collection! It totally screams Summer to me! Application was the easiest as well. Photo below shows two coats. 

Bit Faker - Full coverage bronze glitter. Unbelievably gorgeous! I used two coats for my photos below  & they are not kidding about it being full coverage! This would look AMAZING as an accent nail with Sunbaker! 

Champers - Rose gold shimmer. I was a little weary that this was going to be a close dupe for The Old Bill, but it's not! I'm always looking for a great rose gold polish & this is definitely one! Application was okay.. a little streaky but not too bad. Removal was a bit of a pain. Because of the ever so fine microglitter, it was everywhere! Photos below shows three coats.  

Marbs - Yellow Gold Microshimmer. This one is pretty unique in my opinion. I don't think I have ever seen a yellow shade like this before! Application was pretty good - Photo below shows two coats. 

Bobby Dazzler - My LEAST favorite in the collection. I love the fact that it's like a liquid silver, but I hated how it applied. It was streaky and unpleasant to work with. I recommend a good ridge filler base if you plan on purchasing this one!

  1. I'm not that excited about these except from Bit Faker which looks amazing!

  2. Great swatches Jess! None of them are really screaming to me, but that's just because after being lacquer obsessed for so long, I've become jaded ;-) My fav is Poole, but I own so many similar to it!

  3. I have to admit, I'm kind of disappointed by these. Great swatches though... thank you!

  4. Confirmed! Sun Baker is my favorite. I know I have a few polishes that are similar but I really want this one. Thanks for posting the swatches.

  5. great swatches.. you KNOW i love my blue Poole :D

  6. I also love the rose gold one and the bit faker.. As well as my last comment from my personal account instead of my blog account lol... that blue is amazing!!!!!

  7. Oooh your swatches make me want Bit Faker, Poole and Champers!

  8. pretty swatches! I don't know how you manage- with polishes this metallic, there are always brushstroke issues for me. Poole is gorgeous, even if it is that For Audrey-ish color we have seen before. BitFaker is nice- I would love to see a comparison with Torch, a gorgeous orange with gold shimmer BL Nordstrom exclusive.

    1. I don't have Torch or else I would compare! From looking at Cosmetic Sanctuary's swatch, it looks completely different though!

  9. Sun Baker is my fave here! Love it.

  10. Bit Faker looks really pretty.

  11. While none is very unique, I am really liking Poole and Sunbaker.
    And all of these are really great swatches!!

  12. Thanks to your post I not only need "Sunbaker" but looks like I should also get "Bit Faker" too for accent nail. Great post...thanks for sharing!

  13. Oh my goodness, I must have every single color in this collection. I ADORE Butter London with a fiery passion.

  14. I totally Sunbaker shines out the most from the entire collection. That's the one I'll be picking up!
