Butter London Wallis Nail Polish Review, Swatches, Photos

Butter London Wallis

Out of all of the shades, Butter London Wallis was the shade I wanted the most. It always looked so pretty in blog swatches, and when I finally received it I was happy to see it is just as gorgeous in person.

Wallis is a shimmery/microglitter polish, though it is described as metallic. I tend to think of metallics as quite finely milled shimmer with a high reflective quality, so while some may consider it metallic I tend to think more of a micro glitter due to its very distinguishable shimmer particles. The shade reminds me of a dirty, antique olive green gold. Butter London describes it as “A tarnished, metallic olive gold nail lacquer, as mysterious and regal as its namesake,” which I think is spot on.

The formula is a medium consistency, maybe even leaning towards being a bit thick. The first coat is not very opaque, looking quite sheer. In 2 coats I got full coverage, but I did notice I wasn’t able to get as thin a coat on the second layer as the first. It looks gorgeous on the second coat though, and is very flattering on the nail. I love it as much as I hoped I would. I don’t know about longevity, as I tend to change my polishes almost daily, but there wasn’t any premature chipping.

Butter London Wallis retails for $14 and can be found at Ulta, Sephora, Nordstroms, and other retailers. I received mine through a flash sale on Coterie*.

    I was going to get this while I was at Ulta for their B1G1 offer a few weeks ago, but decided against it & then I decided against the whole Coterie offer since there wasn’t much of the other colors I wanted. lol. Looks great though!

    This is a great gold color for fall, I kinda wish I got it instead of West End Wonderland (though that is also a nice polish!). Is it a good sign when a review makes me jelly, haha?

      LOL! That happens to me sometimes when I pass on something. I see it on a blog and then wish I had it.

  • Olivia

    Awesome fall shade!

  • Mica

    Such a nice gold! I really like it :)

  • Liesl (lieslloves)

    It’s an interesting color, to be sure. I’ve never seen it look pretty until now… your skintone does it.
