Butter London Victoriana

*SIGH* My first Butter London.  I recently took advantage of the Ulta BOGO deal on BL and this was one of my choices.  Fortunately, I went to a different store than I normally go to because they had an extremely large display that was about 98% full.  My closest store apparently only had 5 different shades and they were new ones.  I was going to get British Racing Green, but the only one they had left looked like it had been tampered with so I passed.  Instead I opted for this one.  Not only was it pretty, but it matches my middle name :D

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. 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.  



  1. Really pretty color. I am going to try to convince my mom that she needs to give this polish to me (she picked this one up during the BOGO sale)

    And I am right there with you on the wonky lids. Drives. Me. Insane.

  2. This is a really pretty color. Another polish added to my lemmings.

  3. I am LOVING Butter London lately *swoons*
