Butter London Stroppy

It's been a while since I've featured a BL polish on here. I used to be obsessed with the brand but they seem to be emphasizing their foray into makeup much more than their polish lately. But I had an urge to wear some purple polish over the weekend, so I pulled this one out of my untrieds.

Stroppy is a purple shimmer with a slight pink color shift. The shift looks very intense in the bottle (you can even see some gold in there too) but is considerably more subtle on the nail. I won't lie, it was super disappointing, but when you consider Stroppy for what it actually is instead of what the bottle teases, it's still very pretty. It has beautiful red flecks that helps make up for the lack of shifty goodness.

The formula was average--nothing much to report. I used three coats here.

Would this polish be even prettier with that fantastic color shift? Of course! I hate vanishing shimmers and shifters. But it's still a lovely purple, so long as you know what to expect.


  1. Beautiful colour but it's a pity it doesn't look like it does in the bottle.
