Manicure Monday: All Hail the Queen

I promise this will be the last Manicure Monday for a while. Well, maybe for two weeks. Fall is the season of nail colors for me and I can't resist all the new colors out there.

This color may not be new, but it's new to me as is the nail polish brand.

Butter London is a brand known for their nail polishes and I've only tried one other color from the brand and it wasn't my favorite.

I was determined to try another color eventually and when I was looking to place my order on BeautyKind, I saw that the website carried Butter London. This was my chance to build up my fall nail polish collection and give the brand another chance.



I decided on the grey/beige color called "All Hail the Queen" --that name is PERFECTION and so is the color. You can't tell in the photo on the website but in the bottle and on your nails, it has a glitter sheen to it and its gorgeous.


The formula is amazing, in my opinion. It went on a little sheer at first but it built up nicely in two coats. It was smooth going on and dried to a gorgeous finish. I was really pleased with how it applied and how it looked on my nails.

I used it with my Essie Gel Setter top coat and it definitely helped with chipping. I wore it for a week and had minimal chips. I think that says wonders about the nail polish formula and the top coat.

The one thing that started to bother me as the days went on was that the more I looked at the color, the more I felt like it was a grandma color. Maybe because my grandma has worn nail colors like that in the past but I felt kind of old when I wore it, if that makes sense.

All in all, I really liked this polish and it will be in rotation this year!

Do you like Butter London nail polishes? What's your favorite nail polish brand?
