Butter London British Racing Green Nail Lacquer

Butter London British Racing Green Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark hunter green.” It’s a rich, luxuriously dark cool-toned green with soft emerald green sparkle. I don’t have much like it, which is always something I can appreciate. Illamasqua Kink is the closest in color, but it has such a different finish that the two really aren’t dupes. MAC Jade Dragon would be the next closest, but it’s darker, cooler-toned, and the shimmer is more dominant.

The shade was opaque in two coats and applied without bubbling or streaking. I’ve had good luck with Butter London’s lacquers so far (I’ve tried maybe ten or less?)–they’ve allowed me to add some really phenomenal shades to my stash! British Racing Green is no different! Since it felt like I hadn’t tested the wear of Butter London in awhile, I wore this shade for a week, and I didn’t have any chips, just minor tip wear. I did have some faint staining, even though I used a base coat.
