Trying pink victory! Butter London Fairy Lights


While I'm not usually a pink kinda girl, this one ticks all the boxes. I am obsessed with it. Not a surprise given that the merest hint of a metallic polish is guaranteed to drive me batshit...and this is a rich, pink chrome. Sorry in advance for picture overload. And any lemmings created.



It's fully opaque in two coats. You could even get away with one, but since chromes show imperfections, I use two with a coat of seche vite layered inbetween and lumos on top, which totally hides the fact that I have a couple of teabag patches right now. (You can tell my nails are bad if I'm willing to butcher my precious Whittard teabags to fix it). But rather than waffle on, I'm just going to show you pictures. Which are no-where near as pretty as the polish, so you'll have to use your imagination.


It's slightly blue but is so super shiny that it shifts colours in different lights. Right now indoors it looks baby pink. Outdoors it's darker and cool-toned. In the sunshine it glows white. Being a chrome it's also a whizz to apply and dries really quick.


I have bought a back up since this is limited edition and I tend to wear my chromes a lot. That doesn't count towards the no-buy, right?! (OK, so maybe the other three BLs I bought to make up the shipping do...) /guilt. Looks nice under red shatter, too:

Lemming this pink metallic. None like that in my collection yet! The shatter- well not so much. I am in that camp of major tried of shatters/crakles and such.

Aaah! Lemming this now! Chiming in to agree that I am not a pink person either (especially not baby/lighter pinks) but my gosh that's a pretty polish. I want it. Thanks for all the photos xx

Don't worry, backups don't count for the "no buy" :-P (neither do limited editions)!!

The red does definitely look pink in certain lights - I found the thickness of the coat really affected it. It's a really cool shatter though, much less gloopy and opaque than the others I own. I'm a little bored of shatters but they're great for extending a mani (as in this case).

@maisenzasmalto - thanks for the affirmation ;)

I love metallics and this is a beauty. I haven't looked at Butter London's website. It's better I don't since I'm paying for my root canal & crown. Makes me sick thinking of all the polish I could buy! Love the red crackle on top.
