butter LONDON Poole

butter LONDON Poole 3It’s rare I actually pick up a butter LONDON polish. While I absolutely love the brand the polishes are expensive at $15 a bottle so I try to limit myself.

butter LONDON’s Summer Holiday 2013 collection is a mixed bag in terms of colors and finishes. Poole is the only creme in the collection and I was instantly drawn to it.

Poole is a robin’s egg blue creme that has the slightest bit of dustiness to it. It’s similar in color to Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter and Wet n Wild Megalast I Need a Refresh-mint but neither are exact dupes.

The formula was fine though not fantastic. I needed three coats it get an opaque, even color.

In case you were curious as to where the name comes from Poole is a resort town in southern England.

I truly am addicted to this polish. No, it’s not the most unique color ever, but there’s something subtle and chic about it. I even added a little glitter to it (PISTOL polish Run The Word) to brighten up my Monday.

As always, there are additional swatches below the jump!

  1. I keep “visiting” this shade at Ulta, and your gorgeous swatch is tempting me to snap it up… I already have 2 other colors in the robin’s egg vicinity, but this one is just SO pretty.

  2. This is more of a sea green than robin’s egg (blue), hence the inspiration from Poole, Dorset. This could possibly be my favourite Butter London polish! xXx
