Butter London Spring/Summer 2011 – Dahling NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 28 - 2011

I’ll admit that when I first saw this shade in the bottle… I thought it looked a bit mauve/rose-granny-chic.  I’m still not sure it feels very Spring/Summer to me but it thankfully has enough raspberry in it to keep it looking modern.

Dahling *air kisses* is a pleasant enough shade.  It doesn’t knock my socks off but it does look good with most outfits and is conservative enough to wear whenever a red might be considered a touch too saucy!  It’s one of those shades that you’d reach for when you want a neat/polished look with little thought.

Application was solid with no issues to report… wear was average too… it’s an all round average kinda polish that will fulfil all your polish needs without blowing your mind.  And let’s be honest, we all need something we can depend on sometimes!

Dahling is available online from PowderRooms priced at £11.95.

Are there any polish shades that you can’t get excited over?

    Its a little humdrum compared to some of their other fab colours but not every one wants green nails or blue with micro glitter, I guess!

    I actually really like it, I’ve got a similar shade (catalogue gift box polish, no brand) that looks great on me.

  3. I don’t know why, but something about the texture of Butter London nail polishes in the photos you take of them always make my teeth itch. It is the most inexplicable thing. Probably up there with the way that the presence of Lindor chocolates make my sinuses hurt… Nice colour, once I get past the teeth itchery though xD

    Doesn’t knock your socks off?! Girl, you must be crazy 😛 This one’s exactly the kind of shade that calls to me – just lovely!

    This makes me think of raspberry. It’s just a very yummy looking color!

    It’s lovely! I know it’s pink-y, but to me it seems almost… off-red? Does that make sense? 😛 I looove off-reds anyway, whether they exist or not.

    I’m hot and cold about this color. It would make a lovely work safe color but it is a bit hum drum. Maybe it will look even snazzier with a shimmer top coat or one of the Butter London jelly polishes?

    Very pretty, it looks fruity! 🙂
