Butter London is one of the brands I've become enamoured with lately - despite their hit-and-miss quality, as well as their high prices, there's just something about those cute rectangular bottles, with their pretty colours and cheeky names, that makes me just want a few more shades. And so here is one of my latest Butter London acquisitions, which I think is perfect for whatever warmer Spring weather is coming up - Trout Pout!

Butter London Trout Pout

I happen to be wildly in love with this colour at the moment - it is so perfect for the season, as we look at all the Spring-themed collections and products the various brands are putting out. Just look at that gorgeous colour!

Butter London Trout Pout: A perfect colour for Spring

Butter Londons can be pretty spotty when it comes to quality - some of them are gorgeous two-coaters, some of them are four-coats-and-there's-still-VNL kind of colours, but fortunately Trout Pout is one of the good ones! What you see here is two coats, in natural shaded daylight. Good application, pretty colour, and only one or two small bald patches, due to my impatient application.

Another thing I really love about this shade is the colour. It is a very unique mix of pink of coral, of bright and muted. It's a blend of pink and coral, although to my eye it leans more warm pink. And it's a little bit bright, but definitely not neon. I'd say it's a very wearable introduction to colour for someone who's afraid of anything remotely bright. I got compliments from at least 2-3 different colleagues when I wore it to work, with one of them commenting, "You don't often wear shades like this." (I take it to mean that I don't often wear pinkish shades, which is true!)

Butter London Trout Pout: I love this colour, and I'll definitely be wearing it again

This polish lasted for about 4-5 days on me before any significant chips appeared, which is pretty usual for me. I love this polish - the combination of colour, fairly smooth application, and the compliments it got me (not necessary, but always a bonus) means I'll be wearing this again!

The Bottom Line: Unique colour, great application, and good quality make this a keeper for me.


  1. What a beautiful color!! This season and the next are going to be torture for me :(

    So many beautiful colors that I can use, but If I use them on my nails it can be so bad, can't it?

    I don't think that I can scare people with this colors on my nails ( not like with that colors on my face, that made me gain subtle comments for family and friends like you look weird,sick, that color doesn't suit you etc )

    Now that I think about it I feel so relieved! I will use bronze, military green, brown!!!! and all orange ,peach, corals!!, warm greens and golden!!

    Of to Sally Beauty Supply!! I will star cheap and if everything go well I will go for Chanel,Dior and Tom Ford!!! :D

    Wish me luck!!!
