Butter London – Big Smoke NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 12 - 2010

Ready for a Bobby Dazzler?  (does anyone under the age of 75 (apart from me) ever say that?)

Check out Butter London’s Big Smoke!

*dies*

It’s almost denimy in it’s loveliness.  It’s a beautiful shimmery toned-down blue that totally has that smoky twilight vibe about it.

I flippin’ adore Butter London for their shade range and since they sorted out their initial teething problems with the formula and bottles… they’re remaining my favourite brand.

Some people have issues with wear… I never have but they also do a marvellous base coat that is (apparently) an absolute MUST if you’re the type of person who gets polish chips within the day.

Big Smoke applied beautifully for me and is a must-have for blue polish lovers everywhere.

You can pick Butter London – Big Smoke up online from Powder Rooms priced at £9.75.

    I adore Butter London as a brand and have never had any problems.

    And that expression is certainly in my arsenal. I am 55 though.

  2. karleigh says:

    Never tried a Butter polish due to the price tag, but I used to balk at £13 for an Illamasqua and utterly adore them!
    Will check them out xxx

  3. This is a beautiful shade. Been meaning to check out Butter London for a long time, this colour might be just the extra push I need!

    Ooh! The Butter London polishes looks too gorgeous! I wish I could buy nearly all of them, but sadly (or luckily, for my economy) we don’t have this brand here in Norway. I’ll have to pick them up next time I’m in the UK. :)

    You take such gorgeous photos, and your nails looks so great. I wish I could grow them pretty like that :)

    Oh my freakin god, I love this!!! You’re right about the denim tinge to it. Fave ever polish is OPI Russian Navy and it kind of reminds me of this, but this one is more bluey and less purple. Gorgeous. Will show The Boy for a little stocking filler for moi … x

  6. Jade says:

    Gorgeous shade :) I still need to get into the butter polishes, they do get awesome reviews :)

  7. Jan says:

    I love a good blue – so many nail varnishes so little time *sighs*

  8. Nepenthe says:

    That is a stunning shade for nails! It reminds me a bit of Bobbi Brown’s gel liner in Denim? Love those smokey, jewel undertones.

  9. Oceane says:

    i’m so happy! I can finally get Butter in New Zealand. Already got my list ready..

  10. kisten says:

    LOVE this color! I picked it up when Butter polishes were on Haute Look. Not a huge blue fan, but fell for this color!

  11. Gabrielle says:

    lovely products aside, it really bothers me how they brand themselves as ‘London’ but appear to be entirely US-based. they suggest that we pronounce the Thames as ‘Tims’. that’s not even posh sounding…that’s just wrong!

  18. PlatinumV says:

    It’s… it’s… WONDERFUL!
    I have to do a big shopping on line! Is there any site that solds both this brand and OPI and ChinaGlaze? In Italy all these brands are not imported at all :_(

    That is such a pretty colour on you! I absolutely adore Butter London for it’s fashion-forward but very flattering colours- as well as their ethos!

    It is a pain to get in Australia, there is only one place that I know of in Sydney to buy it, which is probably why I haven’t bought out their entire collection!
