Butter London – Yummy Mummy


I posted earlier in the week about the awesome Latest In Beauty Summer Nails box I received and how excited I was to try my first Butter London polish.. well here it is! It’s not particularly summery so I did think it a strange addition to the box but as I understand it this is one of the brand classic shades and I can see why. I love the name for one and given the price the only Mummys that will be buying will likely be of the Yummy variety so y’know.. I get it. Its a minky nude with a fine glitter that is apparent in the bottle but doesn’t really translate on the nails.. not that I could see anyway so that was slightly disappointing but it’s easy to remove so I guess that’s a benefit of the glitters non-presence. The formula is great, two coats and it’s totally opaque so I would definitely consider buying another from the range in future but at £12 a bottle it will have to be something special.

    I’ve been wanting to try a Butter London polish, but they are just that little bit too expensive 🙁

    I actually think the shimmer does come across, it gives it a bit of a ‘pearly’ finish.
    Of course, that could just be the photos. Gorgeous colour though!

    I bought this colour about two years ago as I was totally in love with the shade and assumed at £12 it would be good stuff. Within a couple of months,and not a great deal of usage,it went dry and gloopy. I couldn’t believe it as I’ve had £2.50 Barry M nail varnishes for far longer and they’re still usable.
    Was really disappointed and am reluctant to use Butter again. Annoying as I’m totally in love with the shade.

      that is very interesting.. maybe they’re not worth the hype after all

    How gorgeous is that colour?

    I’m not one for summer shades although currently rocking a neon orange nails inc on my toes! Definitely going to have to look out for this!

    How long before it chipped? As a, ahem, yummy mummy myself I manage to chip shellac after 2 days use!

      To be honest I wasn’t keen and reapplied the same day so I’m not sure

    There’s a Rimmel 60 Second nail polish called At Ease which looks like it would be pretty similar, if not identical to that!
