Anywho. During my swatch-a-thon I decided to give this a try to see if I liked it. I've seen mixed reviews on BL polishes and wanted to have my own opinion. Victoriana did not disappoint. To me it's like a dusky blue with a green hue and silver sparkle. Butter London describes it as "A textured twinkling vintage blue pale and slightly smoky. Things reminiscent of the Victorian era, such as corsets, top hats and Syphilis." LoL
This beauty really did impress me. It was opaque in just one coat. I really like how the bottle cap comes off to make it easier to apply AND so that once you're done, you pop it back on the brush handle to line back up. Nothing bothers me more than an odd shape bottle where the lid is wonky. It annoys my OCD. The pics below are 1 coat over a plain clear base and NO top coat.
|ACK....got a fuzzy on my finger.|
This one is definitely a keeper. I was really shocked that the store I went to had so much. I got there about 20 minutes after they opened and I was the first one that had come in looking for the deal. There were about 6 ladies standing up front to greet me & we all giggled. I can't wait to get more BL's though.
Ulta currently has a buy 2 get 1 free deal going on for Butter London, so go check it out.
