Butter London Nail Polish Yummy Mummy






My initial introduction to Butter London nail polish wasn't a big success, so I gave up on the brands for a very long time. Then I saw some of Amy's swatches on Cafe Makeup resulting in an online shopping spree. This time I was so thrilled with the outcome I was willing to forgive the annoying cap.

As much as I love my reds and purples, when it comes to nail color the right nudes and neutrals thrill me just as much. I'm on a never ending quest for the classiest, most perfect beige. Butter London's Yummy Mummy might be it, despite the annoying name.

Yummy Mummy is a somewhat cool toned beige with the most subtle shimmery finish. It's wedding appropriate, job interview friendly and very pretty. It works with anything and everything and would be the color I buy again and again. The texture is great: no complaints this time, two coats deliver the pretty and dry quickly.

Bottom Line: Chanel who?

Butter London Nail Polish ($14) can be found on the company's website and from Ricky's stores in NYC, among other places.

  1. This is a really nice color! Although I really want the disco version of this (I need more glitter), All Hail McQueen.

  5. I love their colors, but they seem to dry out fairly fast, and I am so bad with painting my nails I don't do it frequently, and I can't manage the tougher texture. Maybe I should buy a new bottle, but they're not cheap!

  6. This looks lovely, I think I might have to add this to my Zuneta order to go with the All Hail McQueen that's already in there.
