30 Days of Colour [Day 5: Green] Butter London Swinger


I'm a few hours late but that's okay. :) The first post I have to share with you today is my 'Green' fill for the 30 Days of Colour. I went with a green I've been wanting to try for ages, and also the only Butter London in my collection - Butter London Swinger. I picked this up for St Patrick's Day last year but never got around to using it.


Swinger is a full coverage green glitter with a mix of microglitter and larger hex glitters in a very slightly tinted base. As you'll see in the macro down below there's also a fair bit of gold glitter too, which I think helps to lighten the overall colour from a distance.


I used three coats (no top coat) to get this coverage but I did notice the glitter tended to separate from the base while I was using it, almost to the point where I had to re-shake each time before applying. So that was annoying.


See? Both green and gold, even if it's not as obvious from a distance! Hm! :)


Even though I don't think I'll pull this one out again before St Patrick's Day next year I still think it's a fun polish to have in my collection. This was my first try with Butter London and while I like the polish overall I'm not especially impressed with it so I don't know that I would buy more... Well, maybe one or two more if only so this bottle doesn't feel so lonely off on it's own in my Helmer. ;)

Here's a look at the other 'Green' fills:



And here's the rest of the month at a glance:


Let me know what you think! See you later today with my 'Purple' fill!

Thanks for visiting! xx

  1. This polish does scream St. Patricks to me, maybe because of the glitter xD It's pretty but I wouldn't wear it for everyday either.

  4. So pretty! Swinger is one that I've always thought about getting because I've seen so many pretty swatches of it! The shaking between coats though, that's a deal breaker.

  5. This is *such* a gorgeous color, though I agree with the other commenters about the formula being a bummer. BTW, your photos are looking really incredible lately!
