Victoriana by Butter London
Somewhat of a niche brand, Butter London first hit my radar (and the public consciousness) with 2009’s highly coveted British Racing Green. Since then, I’ve been intrigued by the brand’s very English sensibility (mostly reflected in the awesome names). This Christmas, my friend and recent nail polish convert JS gifted me with this showstopping teal from the Fall 2010 collection. The teal base is actually quite unusual; sometimes it looks like a muted blue, other times it seems more green. On top of that, the silver glitter is more densely packed than most other polishes. The overall effect is to produce a unique color that applies like, well, butter. My only real complaint would be that the brush is very small, requiring you to go over each nail several times to achieve full coverage.
