butter London Springtime Romance Collection | Swatches and Review

Hi everyone!

Today I have a swatch and review of the new butter London Springtime Romance Collection! There are 6 polishes total, and all come in their butter London mini bottles. These shades are described as “romantic neutrals with a rebellious twist”. They are all their Patent Shine 10X Formula, which is one of my favorites because they are much shinier and longer lasting than other polishes. Bonus: these are all 8-free, gluten free, cruelty free, and vegan.

As I always say with my swatch & review blog posts… Fair warning: this is a photo-heavy post!

Let’s get into the swatches…

First up is “Royal Blush”. Here I’m wearing 3 coats with top coat. This one ended up being a bit patchy which is why I needed 3 coats. Definitely be careful of doing too many strokes as the color will start to get bald patches when you touch the brush to your nail too much.


But I really love this color! I was worried about this shade looking strange with my skin tone, but I think it ended up being a nice neutral pink on me. I hope that the formula will thicken up a little bit over time and make the color a little bit more opaque, but that’s pretty much the only con I have to this polish. If you’re ok with doing 3 careful coats, then I highly recommend this shade!


Next we have “Starkers”, a greige with greenish undertones. Here I’m wearing 3 coats with top coat. This was another one that definitely needed 3, otherwise you would have had streaks in the nail polish.


I haven’t decided how I feel about the greenish undertones to this polish yet. I didn’t think the “green” was that noticeable in person, but it really seems to come through in the pictures. Still, I don’t hate it… And I think I still like this polish on me.


Here is “Violet Pastilles”, a light taupe. This is 3 coats. This one was a little bit more sheer than I had hoped, but again formula went on easily and was super shiny. I’m wearing top coat over all of these swatches but I have to admit, these are really shiny on their own.


This one just feels so classic! It is such a simple taupe but I like this one a lot more than I expected. It’s a perfect neutral polish. And again, these are so shiny in person and look so beautiful on. butter London’s Patent Shine formula is amazing!!


Then we have “Warm Fuzzies”, a medium gray. This one was 2 coats with top coat. You guys know I love a good gray and I like how this one has a bit of a beige tone to it. The undertones give this gray a little bit more life and flare.


I think you can see some slight patches on my pinky and index nails in these pictures… I really tried to make 2 coats work but I think I could’ve done with a 3rd coat. Either way, I think this polish is one of my favorites from the collection.


This one is “Frisky Business”, a peachy nude. I’m wearing 3 coats with top coat. I wish I had a better way to describe this polish… It’s definitely a neutral with a bit of a kick to it. I don’t think I have another like this one!


You guys probably know by now that peachy/orange-y shades aren’t really my style, so this one wasn’t my favorite from the collection. But I can see a lot of people really liking this one a lot more than me!


And last but not least is my favorite, “Mink Grey”. This is 2 coats, although if you do very thin coats, you might need 3 to cover any possible patchiness. I noticed a few thin spots when I took pictures under my super bright lights.


I loooove shades like this. I think they are universally flattering and I always find myself reaching for ones like this in the fall/winter! I would describe this polish as a deep taupe-y gray. It’s not quite brown, not quite gray… Just the perfect shade!


And that’s all of the polishes! Each bottle retails for $12 and they are available on butterlondon.com and Amazon.

Hope you all found this review helpful! Thanks for reading.
