Favorite butter LONDON Nail Polishes

One of the best parts of the ULTA 21 Days of Steals for us nail polish lovers is the butter LONDON 2 for $15 sale. It’s a great time to add that coveted shade to your bL collection and try the polishes you’ve considered but never taken the plunge on.

Today, I have my favorite butter LONDON colors that are currently available at, store availability will vary, to help you narrow down what is probably a mighty list of options.

Fall 2014 Brick Lane Collection Favorites

There’s no official word on whether the butter LONDON Fall 2014 collection, Brick Lane, will be included or on display in stores (only one shade is online) but three of the polishes stood out to me. I haven’t had a chance to swatch the collection in full but want you to have a heads up.

butter LONDON Dubs is a pink-nude sparkler that dries down textured, a cross between Zoya Pixie Dust and Magical Pixie. It has some larger hex pieces but they are smaller than Magical Pixie and not holo.

butter LONDON Cor Blimey is a regal purple shimmer that dries satin. It’s really rich with a reddish shimmer that adds a lot of depth.

butter LONDON Bric-A-Brac looks like a jelly sandwich on the nail. The golden fleck particles give it a lit-from-within glow.

butter LONDON Marrow (swatch) is a luscious purple with a subtle shimmer

Muggins (swatch) is a whisper soft lavender creme.

Blowing Raspberries (swatch) is a classic berry creme

Note: My original bottle of Muggins was quite sheer and my review, linked above, reflects that. The current version is well pigmented and smooth.

butter LONDON Toff is a perfect mauve neutral creme for fall and practically a one-coat wonder.

butter LONDON Trout Pout is a fun bright coral creme

butter LONDON Cake-Hole is a unique pink in that it’s almost neon and dries satin.

butter LONDON Molly Coddled is the warm, lilac sister to Muggins

butter LONDON Giddy Kipper is a delicious indigo shimmer. It’s so smooth, rich and pigmented. Love it!

butter LONDON Slapper is a brighter, blue-r version of Artful Dodger.

And for myself, I plan to add these four beauties to my collection. Last time around, my local store didn’t have them all in stock so I’ve been not-so-patiently waiting to add Indigo Punk, Inky Six, Champers and Blagger to my collection.

    Great favorites you picked!

  2. Mary L. says:

    Muggins! Yes, my all time fave, and Wallis along with Rosie Lee (a darker, rosier version of their new Dubs that you swatched). On my wish list, as shown above: Molly Coddled, Toff and Blagger, as well as Queen Vic, Sloane and Silly Billy.

  3. Monica says:

    Thanks for the great suggestions!! Tell me…are there major differences between CorBlimey and Jinsoon’s Farrago? Do you prefer one over the other?

  4. Katy says:

    Thanks for the overview! I’m still trying to finalize my list. Giddy Kipper and Indigo Punk are at the top of my list.

    I’m surprised you didn’t list British Racing Green! It was my first green polish. It, and your post, made me a bL super fan! :)

  5. I had such a hard time choosing but I made myself stick to just two. I ended up with All Hail the Queen and Giddy Kipper. I didn’t see this post until just now, but it’s still very helpful for future reference!

    I ended up getting only 2 as I’ve decided to try to limit my splurges. lol I know, that is so crazy and sad, huh? I had a gift card to use for Ulta, so it was pretty much nothing out of my pocket therefore NOT a splurge, or at least that’s the logic I was going with. :) I REALLY loved how Dubs looked on your swatch, so I snatched up that and The Black Night. Then when I went to Sally’s, I found some Orly’s on clearance, including Androgynie. They are very similar but I felt like there was enough difference that it would be ok to snatch up Androgynie for $3. If nothing else, one will make a good gift filler!

  7. So I am new to the Ulta sale. Is THIS how it works? Each date a new item is released for the REMAINDER of the sale? Or are things only on sale for that specific date and by the next day they move on to the next thing on sale? Thanks.

  8. Man you snooze you LOSE! Thanks!

    I have Trout Pout but didn’t 100% love it on me so I got Kerfuffle. Have yet to try it on but I did get Cake-Hole and I loved it the moment it touched my nail.

  10. Urby says:

    I got Knackered, Slapper, Scouse, and Inky Six. I already have Giddy Kipper, and I do love that shade, too! To be fair, though, I love all of my BLs…
