Butter London Keen, Trallop, and Lucy in the Sky nail lacquer (Boho Rock collection) review + swatches


             I'm a girl that loves spring! Along with the beautiful blooms and sense of renewal, I look forward to the delicate color collections that debut at this time every year. I'm excited to share shades from the brand new Butter London Boho Rock collection (Spring 2014) with you today, courtesy of Butter London --- I have a feeling you're going to share in my delight!


         I'm most keen on the pinky-peach of Butter London Keen! This crème shade has a peachy-clean feel perfect for spring. Peach shades can be difficult for me to wear; however, the generous dose of pink within Keen makes it look more natural against my skin tone.


        Butter London Trallop is a light caramel nude crème. I feel that this shade really channels the earthy aesthetic of the Boho Rock collection. And finally, for the girl with kaleidoscope eyes, I have Butter London Lucy in the Sky! This polish has an iridescent silver and gold glitter suspended in a rosy taupe base. The base is somewhat sheer, but can be built up to opacity in 3 coats.


         I've painted out some comparison swatches so you can get a better look at my Butter London Boho Rock shades!  You can see how Butter London Keen is more peach than pink when compared to NARS Trouville (click for review) and Essie Van D'Go. It's also slightly muted in comparison. I think it really helps to see Butter London Trallop swatched against Butter London Shandy (click for review) and Butter London Tea with the Queen, as nudes can really run a gamut. You can see it's warmer, darker, and less peach than Shandy, while it's lighter and less pink-brown than Tea with the Queen. Butter London Lucy in the Sky is quite unique. You can see it's cooler and more taupe when compared to the warm gold shimmer of Butter London Marbs (click for review). However you can see that it's darker and earthier than a platinum gold like SpaRitual Cassiterite (click for review).


          Overall I find the Butter London Boho collection (Spring 2014) shades shown here to be a nice new take on neutrals and naturals for spring. Naturally, I gravitate towards the peachy-pink of Butter London Keen; however, I definitely see Butter London Trallop and Lucy in the Sky finding their way into my spring rotation as well!

         Thanks for reading! Have you had a chance to play with the Butter London Boho Rock collection? What Butter London shades have you been loving lately? What neutral polishes are must-haves in your collection?

Love, Dovey.

  1. Lucy in the Sky is really cool! Nice and sparkling! I actually don't wear neutrals that often. When given the choice, it seems like I always reach for darker and wackier shades!

  13. Ooh Peachy Keen looks so pretty! Do you remember how many coats this was? I have an Orly that's a similar color but the formula isn't great and it takes three-four coats because of the streaky factor :(
