Butter London Nail Lacquer in West End Wonderland Review and Swatches

My apologies for the blurry picture. It shows up sharp on my desktop but fuzzy once I upload it. Darn!

Either way, I hope you can tell that Butter London Nail Lacquer in West End Wonderland ($15) is a fun glitter nail polish. Featuring medium-sized flecks of gold, silver, and bronze, the shades of glitter in this nail polish combine for an overall warm champagne effect that's lovely and fairly subtle as far as glitter goes.

One coat of Butter London Nail Lacquer in West End Wonderland is pretty sheer and would work well for layering. Two coats gets you nearly opaque coverage. I'm not a huge glitter fan, so I think I might prefer layering this polish over another color for a different look.

I tend to get good wear time from glitter polishes in general, and Butter London Nail Lacquer has a particularly long-lasting formula. The resulting combination? Butter London + glitter = five or six days of excellent wear. I don't know about you, but I get sick of my nail polish fast and was ready for a change by that point!

Overall, I think Butter London Nail Lacquer in West End Wonderland is a nice option for gold/champagne glitter nail polish. The price is pretty steep though, and I'm not sure that this shade has that special "Wow" factor I've come to expect from other Butter London Nail Lacquers. The formula is great but I still recommend that you shop around for a cheaper option unless you're a glitter aficionado.
