Butter London Cream Tea NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 14 - 2011

This is unexplored territory for me… white.  It’s one of those nail shades that suddenly become “bang on trend” and throw everyone into a fizz of polarised opinions on how great/terrible it looks!

Butter London’s Cream Tea isn’t a pure, stark white.  As the name might suggest, it’s a slightly creamy white that would work nicely for the tips in French manicures were it not so sheer.  The above shows three coats and there’s still a certain veil-like quality to the finish.

I’m on the fence… I think it’s one of those shades you appreciate more freely on someone else’s fingers than your own.

Butter London Cream Tea is available online from Powder Rooms priced at £11.95

What say you?  Do you ever wear white or off-white polishes?

    I think this looks gorgeous on you. I’m after this for sure!

  2. Sophie says:

    It’s lovely! Looks great. Though I probably wouldn’t like it on me.. As you say, the kinda shade you appreciate on others! x

    Ha, I love it when you find use for a product I own but don’t use! I somehow acquired Nails Inc Floral Street (the tip colour in a French kit I think?) and have wondered if it’s any good for full nails. But this seems less Tippex-y – Floral St goes from massively streaky to fully opaque (and matte and chalky). I kind of like that the Butter version isn’t totally opaque.

    I think on a lot of pale hands this’ll give a “very pale nude shade” kind of look. (Not sure how it’d look on darker skin though.) I really should experiment with white again…

    Loving this on you.
    Bit jealous as I know it doesn’t suit me as well.

    Keep rocking it missus!

  5. Jen says:

    If I find this cut-price I’ll surely get it.

  6. Vijaya says:

    This would probably look weird on me. Great on you, though!

  7. Beautiful! it works with your pale skin.

  8. Robyn says:

    Shame it’s sheer, how perfect it would be for french manicures!

  9. 25FLONDON says:

    I think it looks quite sophisticated on you! Not sure how it’d look on my skin tone though, but it’s very pretty & I like the glow it has.

  10. Michelle says:

    I agree with Jamilla regarding the polish. I think the color actually suits your skin tone well, but I’m not sure how it’d look on anyone less pale.

  11. Julianne says:

    I think it looks lovely on you, I’m almost tempted to reconsider wearing white polish myself!

  12. Gauri says:

    I should try this.

  13. Very pretty. I normally stay away from whites, there was a girl I went to school with who wore white varnish a lot and actually used Tipex if she ran out, yeah, seriously. But horrific high school stories aside, perhaps the right shade of white is something to consider… xx
