In anticipation of Prince William and Duchess Kate's royal baby-to-be, Butter London has created a special limited edition lacquer. (Can you believe the baby is due in July? I can hardly wait!) Butter London Pitter Patter nail lacquer is, of course, a royal purple. I had a chance to sample Pitter Patter courtesy of Butter London and I'm excited to share my review and swatches with you today!
Butter London Pitter Patter is a deep royal purple with subtle shimmer. The shimmer is more evident on my nails than on my nail wheel. I've made a few comparison swatches below so you can get a better idea of the color. Revlon Plum Night is a creme that is much darker than Pitter Patter. Sephora by OPI Just A Little Dangerous is similar, but slightly lighter and has a pinch more shimmer, as you can see below. Butter London Pitter Patter is slightly darker and bluer than NARS Purple Rain. They are similar, but Purple Rain has considerably more shimmer (especially red toned shimmer) and is much flashier on nails. OPI Tease-y Does It is a blacker and redder purple than Pitter Patter; it has much larger shimmer particles. The formula is smooth and level, as typical of Butter London polishes. Two coats did the trick.
Butter London Pitter Patter nail lacquer ($15) is a posh purple that would make a great addition to any polish lover's collection. I love how chic the subtle shimmer is; it's just enough to create an eye-catching glint in bright sunshine, while putting out a mysterious, secret shimmer indoors. If you're excited about Pitter Patter, be sure to pick one up soon; it's limited edition and is sure to disappear quickly, if Butter London's previous "royal" offerings are any indication! Butter London Pitter Patter can be purchased from Butter London.
