Butter London Wallis is a dark, glowy polish that shines a bright golden-olive green. It’s named after Wallis Simpson, the woman for whom Edward VIII gave up the throne of England.
Today I have swatches of Lady Muck, from Butter London’s spring collection. It’s the only one from the collection I really wanted, and I couldn’t talk myself out of it, even though I felt like it was very similar to China Glaze’s Sea Spray. So I checked it out-comparisons coming up.
Butter London has just released a nail polish celebrating Kate Middleton’s marriage to Prince William. Prince William and Kate Middleton met while they were both attending university at St. Andrews, and have been dating for so long that the British tabloids have been calling her Waity Katie for a while–but now Prince William has proposed, using Diana’s big sapphire ring. The wedding is scheduled for April 29th, and there’s a lot of speculation about who will design Kate’s dress, but for now you can get your Royal Wedding fix with Butter London’s No More Waity, Katie.
On the Nordstrom website, Butter London All Hail McQueen is now just called All Hail the Queen. I had seen swatches and read reviews of this polish back in the fall and thought I might pick it up someday, but this made me suddenly intrigued. The polish was, of course, originally named to pay homage to the late Alexander McQueen. This polish is now renamed on both Nordstrom.com and on the Butter London website. (“Bumster” is also renamed, but I’m not really into yellow.) I did a little searching, and some people are reporting that when you buy a bottle called “All Hail the Queen”, you can peel that label off and the “All Hail McQueen” label is still underneath. But I didn’t want to spend $14 and then find out that’s not true.
