Butter LONDON SWATCHES - Macbeth and Minger

These are my first Butter LONDON nail polishes and I really like the quality so far. First of all, the finish of the polishes is very glossy and shiny.

I like the fact that Butter London is 3 free (no DBP, formaldehyde or toluene). The application is easy, because the polish is not thick, and 2 coats are enough for the full opacity. This brand has a pretty diverse color palette and some colors are quite unique. The average price of the nail polish is $14, many of the regular colors can be found in OPI and CG collections for much cheaper price.

Macbeth – is coral with hints of orange and red. Very “spring” nail polish, bright and joyful, but I got bored after 1 day of wear:(. I can’t even say why I was disappointed – I like the color overall…maybe it was too plain and obvious.

Minger – is a burnt orange color. I absolutely love it…it’s ugly and amazing at the same time. Before it arrived, I expected the color to be a very bright and screaming, but it’s quite “muted”. It’s a lighter version of my favorite OPI Ginger Bells.  
My British friend said that “minger” is a slang word for disgusting, smelly or ugly person…lol.

  1. I actually like Macbeth much better as a summery toe color than on my fingernails! :)
