Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer
Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer

Well, That’s Just Lovely Jubbly!

Butter London Lovely Jubbly Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant magenta nail lacquer flecked with red, blue, and gold micro-particles.” It’s a glittery extravaganza that features magenta, blue, and gold particles. I don’t have an extensive stash of glitter polishes, but I did go through what I could. China Glaze CG in the City is more of a gray-ish purple with not much else going on. Rescue Beauty Lounge Frugalista has magenta glitter, but the other accompanying glitter is silver. Milani Hi-Res was the most similar that I had, but it has a purple base with holographic glitter/shimmer.

It’s a rather opaque glitter, which I was totally keen on, just because layering can be fun, but sometimes you just want one polish and to be done! Swatches show the impact of two coats, which is mostly opaque. Three coats would really cinch it, but I think you can get away with two.  The natural dry down is just a little shiny, but there is some texture due to the glitter content, so a thicker, shiny top coat is a must.  I loved that the texture of this wasn’t at all thick; it didn’t have that almost gel-like consistency of a lot of glitter-filled polishes–it was normal, really. I typically get a full week of wear out of Butter London’s polishes with very minor tip wear.

This is such a fun polish! I love how versatile it is: you can use it as a layering polish with just one coat or go full-on glitz and get (mostly) opaque results in two coats.
