Butter London Sunbaker is a radiant red-orange shimmer. Like its namesake, it evokes the heat of the sun! Butter London Champers is a champagne shimmer. It's a gorgeous, bubbly color --- exactly what you'd expect from a glass of champagne!
Butter London Marbs is a warm yellow-gold shimmer that leans a bit bronze. Golds can sometimes be hard for me to wear, but this was quite flattering against my skintone. Butter London Bit Faker is a stunning bronze glitter on a dark brown base. The glitter is quite dense, it only requires two thick coats for complete opacity.
Butter London Bobby Dazzler is a shining silver that leans slightly warm. It's a little warmer than the blue tinged silver of SpaRitual Silver, but cooler than the more yellow-toned Sephora by OPI Queen of Everything. Butter London Marbs is an warm bronzed yellow gold. You can see it has more bronze tones than the yellow beige gold of NARS Versailles. It has similar tones to the glitter in China Glaze I Herd That. Butter London Bit Faker has a dark brown base that's a bit darker than NARS Bad Influence, and bronze glitter that's a bit warmer than OPI San Tan-Tonio.
Here's a final look at swatches of the Butter London Summer Holiday 2013 collection!
The Butter London Summer Holiday 2013 collection ($15 each) is a stunning collection of nail lacquers. There's a big dose of warmth here; you almost feel the summer sun reflected in them! I love how each color is unexpected, yet well nuanced as to make them very wearable. It's tough to choose a favorite, as I've been enjoying every single color --- however if I had to choose, the fiery red orange of Butter London Sunbaker and the watery blue of Butter London Poole would be my picks! Butter London is available at Sephora, Ulta, and other beauty retailers.

Hey Dovey, thanks for the pretty photos & swatches! Too many of these are calling my name (especially Poole)!ReplyDelete
Thanks Sunny! Poole is such a relaxing color :)Delete
Great swatches! How you get the background so incredibly white??ReplyDelete
The blue and silver polishes are exceptional... I'm going to have to take a sneak peak at this collection...
Hi Kisti, Thank you so much for the nice comment! It sounds like you're a fan of cooler colors; both Poole and Bobby Dazzler are good picks!Delete
I'm convinced I need Sunbaker, and Champers is my favorite kind of metallic... I'm sure I could use another bottle of that shade in my stash. ;) Gorgeous photos, as always!ReplyDelete
Hi Liesl, Thank you so much! I'm big fan of champagne metallics too, so I'm thinking Champers will get a lot of use!Delete
I love all of these, but I think Sunbaker and Bit Faker are my favorites.ReplyDelete
Hi Larie, Thanks! Those two are great colors :)Delete
These swatches are spectacular!ReplyDelete
Wow great review! I'm a HUGE Butter London fan! In fact, i'm wearing 'slapper' right now which is a gorgeous turquoise! Poole is SO calling my name! LOVE! Thanks for sharing! xo CarlaReplyDelete
Hi Carla, Thanks so much for the comment! Slapper IS gorgeous, and Poole is too :)Delete
Ooo, I think Sun Baker and Bit Faker are my favorites here! Thanks for the great swatches, Dovey :) And not that it's a big deal but in case you didn't catch it, your Marbs + Bit Faker photo and your Poole + Bobby Dazzler photo are switched/don't match the descriptions below them.ReplyDelete
Hi Tiffany, Sun Baker and Bit Faker are both gorgeous! Thanks so much for the FYI --- definitely will change that stat! :)Delete
I went 'ooooh' when I saw Sun Baker, it has my name written all over it ^^. I also really dig Poole, there is something about those blue shades that I love. Great pictures as usual Dovey, love them!ReplyDelete
Hi Teri, Thank you so much! I had the same reaction --- both colors are at the opposite ends of the spectrum, but so pleasing.Delete
Hi, Dovey. Thanks for the colour wheel comparison shot - very helpful. The more I look at this collection, the more I like it. Felt underwhelmed at first but there are few unique shades in there and the colours all work well together, too!ReplyDelete
Hi Liz, Thanks so much for the comment! I'm so glad the color wheel comparison was helpful; I always feel surprised when I compare colors side by side too!Delete
What a beautiful color wheel! I love this whole collection. Poole is such a gorgeous blue. Bit Faker looks like such a pretty glitter shade. Thanks for the comparisons - I have Sun Salutation and it's helpful to see it next to Champers. :)ReplyDelete
Ooh Ooh Ooh I want the Butter London Poole shade!ReplyDelete
Love that light blue -- such a Spring color!
