Butter LONDON for Goop Nail Polish Swatches

Butter LONDON, the popular nail polish brand, has teamed up with the lifestyle website goop for a new line of nail polishes: butter LONDON for goop. Of course, since I love being your little guinea pig, I thought I’d test out a few shades from the line to see if they’re worth the trouble.

For today’s nail polish swatches, I tried the Big Smoke shade from the “the stones” nail polish trio and the Tea & Toast shade from the “starkers” nail polish trio.

Big Smoke swatchesThe stones trio features three jewel-toned shades. Here, Big Smoke is a nice shimmery blue. It has almost a metallic quality, and the shimmer stands out in shades of blue against a dark blue background.

It took 2 coats to get the color above.

I loved this shade. While you can find something similar by most other nail polish brands, this one seemed a lot better quality than a drugstore nail polish. And there’s just something decadent about butter LONDON’s dark, shimmery blue. It reminds me of midnight.

Tea & Toast swatchesThe starkers trio features neutral, nude colors. Tea & Toast is a dark tan shade bordering on brown. It is a solid color without any shimmer or sparkle.

Best of all: it took only one coat. That’s right. It went on so buttery and opaque that I was done with just one coat of the stuff. That’s super rare!

Tan nail polish is a lot harder to find than the shimmery dark blue shade. Since butter LONDON does this so well, I’d say it’s a must-have for those who love neutral nail polishes.

Where can I get it?

You can pick up butter LONDON for goop nail polish at the goop website for $40 for each trio.

What do you think of these shades? Personally, this was my first tan nail polish, so it was a bit of a special occasion for me.
