Butter London All Hail McQueen Fall 2010

Posted by Lipglossiping On August - 15 - 2010

On Thursday evening I unzipped my purse and shook it’s contents onto the desk infront of me.

Once the dust had settled and the moths had flown off to pastures new, I discovered that I had just enough left for one polish (we’ll ignore the little Chanel haul that spontaneously occurred the next day).

There was really only one polish the money could have been reserved for…

Butter London‘s All Hail McQueen!  A neutral beige/nude shade with a ton of holographic sparkle!  Ok, so it’s not the most sparkliest holographic in the world… but when the sun catches it, it sure is purdy!

Plus, I don’t own a beige holographic polish… are there any others about?

The formula on this polish is a joy.  Thin, smooth and heavily pigmented… 2 careful coats will give you enough opacity to lose the visible nail line, three will give you a perfect finish.  Thanks to the thin formula, drying time is great aswell.

I’ve just gone back to Zuneta (who delivered blisteringly quickly btw!) to pick up Victoriana.  I’m sorely tempted by Marrow too, heck, I’ve been banging on about it since NYFW… but the swatches I’ve seen so far are holding me back.  It’s lost that dusky, durgy quality the Vena Cava mix had.

Anyway, what do you think of All Hail McQueen?

    That is such a pretty colour. Do you think it would easily come off with box standard nail polish remover? xx

    A holographic beige is quite unusual and this looks soo pretty, kind of reminds me of sparkly sand. This and Victoriana are on my to-buy list. I agree about Marrow, it doesn’t seem as unique as the other shades in the collection.

    Edward Cullens shit fingers =0/

    I think a ‘McQueen’ colour should have been a deep, bold red or a glossy punchy purple?

  19. This color is gorgeous! You have convinced me to order it, along with Victoriana. I’ve never tried Butter London before, so I am very excited for them to arrive.

    Incidentally, I love your blog! You often influence my beauty purchases :)

    I have two similiar nail polishes in my stash- Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Shining Moment and Sephora by OPI’s Already Famous. Both shades are a bit darker, I would say taupe not beige; all have the same amount of sparkle to them. However, the Sally Hansen makes a streaky mess so I don’t know that it’s worth bothering with. The OPI has only gold glitter to it and it is lovely- not a dupe, but slightly cheaper at $9. McQueen applies so nicely and is so beautiful on that I don’t regret the money spent on it at all!
