butter London Nail Lacquer-Vernis in Victoriana

I've had this beautiful butter London Nail Lacquer sitting on my vanity for several weeks and just forgot about it.  I finally had a chance to use it last week and I'm glad I did.  I bought this one at Ulta when they were having a special, buy 2 get the 3rd free and then I used my coupon. 

What Ulta's website says about the product:

          DescriptionColour, not Carcinogens. No formaldehyde, No toluene, No DBP, Not animal tested,

DirectionsApply one to two coats. For best results use with Nail Foundation and Hardware.


Victoriana is a gorgeous shade of teal with specks of pewter glitter in it.  They are tiny specks and you can't feel the glitter, it's smooth.  This polish lasted 4 days on my nails before it started wearing off on the tips of my nails.  I did use a base and top coat but it wasn't butter LONDON'S it was a Sally Hansen one I'm testing out...the top coat's obviously not going to make the cut.  



  1. Butter London chips so quickly on me. :( Shame, since it's so pricey!

    1. Pam,

      I have a problem with all polish not lasting more than 4 days. It lasts forever on my toes though. I think it's cause my hands are being constantly washed since I change diapers LOL! But I do agree it's very expensive , I get the same wear from brands like China Glaze and OPI and they are half the price. I'm still looking for that magic brand that lasts at least a whole week.
