butter LONDON Molly Coddled coverI know I keep bashing the 2014 color of the year; Radiant Orchid. I just don’t LIKE it. Or at least I thought I didn’t like it. Enter butter LONDON Molly Coddled. I discovered Molly Coddled when I was putting together my Spring 2014 Must Have Polishes post. So when Ulta had their 2 for $15 butter LONDON sale I picked it up (along with Lucy in the Sky).

butter LONDON describes Molly Coddled as a lavender orchid cream. That’s a pretty fancy way of saying Molly Coddled is a pale pink leaning purple cream. The color is very subtle and chic. Dare I say I found a polish in the radiant orchid color range that I love!?

As with most butter LONDON polishes, the formula is fantastic. I used just two coats in my swatches.

While I was wearing Molly Coddled I couldn’t help but feel like I had something at least similar in my stash. I pulled Essie Nice is Nice, SinfulColors Beverly Hills and Essie Lilacism out of my Melmers and found that Beverly Hills was the closest to Molly Coddled. Beverly Hills has a bit more pink in it but it gives a similar look on the nail.

If you have Beverly Hills in your stash, or you can find Beverly Hills (it’s available on Amazon), I would consider passing on Molly Coddled. SinfulColors polishes retail for $2 which looks pretty nice compared to the $15 butter LONDON price tag.

That being said, if you’re just itching to get your hands on Molly Coddled it can be found on Ulta.com as well as Amazon.

Below the jump are swatches of Molly Coddled along with a comparison to SinfulColors Beverly Hills.
