Butter LONDON 4-Piece Nail Polish Kit Review

Butter LONDON Holiday Set

Nail salons haven’t always been open this year, so lately we’ve taken to doing our own nails at home. We’ve bought polishes from all over through 2020, but this four-piece holiday set from Butter London caught our eye at a recent trip to Costco. At only $19.99 to try four colors of this highly sought after nail polish it was an easy decision!

We’d heard of Butter London before for its fun colors and cheeky descriptions. With a little research we also found that the brand was the original 10-free nail, meaning that it is free from a list of harmful chemicals including things like xylene, camphor, formaldehyde and parabens. It carries through this responsible outlook by being cruelty-free and vegan.

So, we were excited to give this four-piece set a try. Included are two exclusive holiday colors, Iced Lolly and Pash, plus Brolly and London Fog, two colors from this fall’s Zodiac Nail Vault collection (Sagittarius and Aquarius, respectively). An arched nail file also comes included, which is always appreciated.

As always, we cleaned off our nails before starting and, with a couple close friends from our bubble, treated ourselves to a little pampering session. We all came away with personal favorites but loved the mix as a whole.

Brolly is described perfectly on the Butter London site as being “broody.” It’s a deep, dark navy, a perfect pop of color against a light sweater. London Fog has a hint of blue as well, but we’d peg it more as a medium grey. It’s well named—it really evokes that wintery “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” feeling.

The two exclusive colors are a bit more fun. Iced Lolly is a metallic shade slotting in between pink and a pale violet, while Pash is a more fiery, shimmery magenta.

All the polishes were easy to apply, and we found two coats to be the right amount. The first comes on slightly translucent, and the second layers on to full opacity. This was especially noticeable with Pash. We were tempted into a third application for the Iced Lolly swatch but found that it added a few too many brush strokes for our liking.

Two weeks in, we’re also very happy with the durability of the polishes. Our first application is still holding strong, and we haven’t yet had any problems with chipping or flaking.

Butter London’s site has some fun ideas for mixing and matching colors, which we will have to try for our next round! The blues of the London Fog and Brolly seem especially fitting as a pair.

The mini bottles are about half the size of the full bottles (6mL compared to 11mL), but as a seasonal kit they’re perfectly sized. We’ll do a little pre-Christmas refresh with the holiday colors and keep the others stocked away to use through the year.

Get in and get your set soon. The set would make a great stocking stuffer as well! This Costco-exclusive set is an in-store only offer, and quantities are limited. We’re sure they’ll sell out quickly at the value price of $12.99!
