butter LONDON Blowing Raspberries ♥ Swatches and Review

butter LONDON Blowing Raspberries

Pin ItWhen the folks at butter LONDON heard I had trouble with the formula on Artful Dodger, they immediately  offered to send me another polish!  How sweet is that?  I was encouraged to try Blowing Raspberries, and I am glad I sad yes.  Normally I wouldn’t pick out a red shade, but this red has just enough blue in it that that I fell in love.  In the bottle the color does look more pink (more raspberry!) but on my nails it definitely pulls red - more of a cranberry than a raspberry.

The formula WAS awesome - a one-coater!  Usually I can’t get away with just one coat  - I have some flaws in my nail bed that usually requires two coat to cover up.  But I used butter LONDON’s Nail Foundation basecoat and it eliminated my need for two coats!

I definitely see this as a fall/winter shade, and I see myself pulling out again then!
Have you tried butter LONDON’s Nail Foundation?  What are your thoughts?

butter LONDON polishes retail for $14 and can be purchased at your local Sephora or  ULTA, online at beauty.com and on butter LONDON’s website.  Their Nail Foundation is slightly more expensive at $18 a bottle, but you do get more product (17.5 ml vs. 11 ml).
