Butter London Sweetie Shop Collection for Spring 2013 Swatches and Review!

Good afternoon my fellow lacquered lovers!  Happy Wednesday to you all!  I may be a bit silent on here in the next few days because NYFW is starting but be sure to check out my Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (@lacqueredlover) for up to the minute behind the scenes beauty access!  But first, today I have a really cute collection for you!

The Butter London Sweetie Shop Collection is a super cute collection of bright pastels that are perfect for Spring!  Now, without further ado, on to the polish!

 Above:  3 thin coats of Cuppa

Cuppa is a light beige nude creme.  It's definitely a palette cleanser type of color, very professional looking but beige enough that it won't give anyone mannequin hands.  The formula was a bit hard to work with, fairly thick, so I found that three thin coats worked best.

 Above:  3 thin coats of Jasper

Jasper is a bright pastel yellow creme polish.  Now I'm not sure how something can be bright but pastel but this collection is just full of these gems!  The formula for a light yellow wasn't bad, three thin coats made it opaque and not streaky.

 Above:  2 coats of Kerfuffle

I really like saying Kerfuffle.  I have now incorporated it into my vocabulary.  Kerfuffle is a bright pastel coral.  This was a surprise favorite of mine from this collection!  There is a lot of pink to this polish but it's so fun and bright!  This will be a fabulous pedicure color!  The formula was a bit thick but 2 coats worked for this polish, just let them dry for a minute or two in between.

 Above:  2 coats of Fruit Machine

Fruit Machine is a bright baby pink creme.  If you're a pink kinda gal, this color is right up your alley for Spring!  The formula was good on this one, a bit thick but 2 coats worked perfectly!

 Above:  3 thin coats of Fiver

I am loving all the mint greens this year that actually don't give me lobster hands!  Fiver is a gorgeous ice mint green.  I love that it's bright but pale at the same time!  The formula works best when you use three thin coats to even it out.

Above:  3 thin coats of Molly Coddled

Molly Coddled is a bright lilac creme.  I really like how this shade looks and don't think I have an exact dupe for it!  The formula was a bit thick so I found that three thin coats worked the best for full opacity.

All in all, I liked this collection.  I had bought these when they were buy 2 get 1 free at Nordstrom and am glad because a few of the formulas I wasn't in love with.  They all look great eventually but I like my polishes to be 2 coaters.  I will say that Fiver, Kerfuffle and Molly Coddled were definitely my favorites from this collection and fairly easy to work with!  This collection is on sale now for $15 wherever Butter London is sold.

What did you think of this collection?  Any must haves?  Any dupes?


  1. I usually love bL but these don't do anything for me. Maybe I'm also not the right girl for spring collections, because so far, I haven't found much I really want :)
