Butter London Henley Regatta Swatches & Review

Today is my day off from work, so I spent the day wandering Target (My weakness!) and doing the very exciting and stimulating task of household chores. Ah, adulthood! So much excitement I think my heart might stop... Anyway, I figured I would end the day by sharing swatches of the gorgeous Butter London Henley Regatta.

Butter London has been one of my favorite nail polish brands ever since I was first introduced to them by a classmate I was friends with in Cosmetology school. I don't own many, way less than I wish I had, but they are pricey so they are usually only an occasional splurge, or wonderful surprise when I find them on sale at Marshall's.

Henley Regatta was a beautiful find at Ulta a while back. It is a clear base full of very fine glitter in tones of emerald green and vibrant blue. You can see a lot of sparkle in my photos, but even that does not do it justice. It is a glitter bomb, and just gorgeous to look at. When I look at it I just think of the Emerald City from The Wizard of Oz.

My only complaint would be that I wish the base was not clear, I would have loved if it had even a bit of a green tone to it, just to help increase the opacity. It took four coats to reach a livable coverage over bare nails, though my free-edges still show through a bit. I would suggest a similar colored polish as a base if you want full coverage with less coats. I can totally live with the clear base though because it's just so pretty!

I topped my swatches off with one coat of my Out the Door top coat.

Butter London Henley Regatta retails for $15.00, and can be found online -Amazon is currently stocking it at the time of this post.- or at your local Ulta, which is where I bought mine. Ulta's website also has it in stock as I am writing this.
