Butter London's Yummy Mommy...Silly Name...
« on: August 28, 2010, 02:36:03 PM »
...interesting polish.  Wasn't sure I'd like taupe on my nails but since I have a Ricky's in my neighborhood I decided to take the plunge.  Just used it now and it's growing on me really quickly!  Also bought their All Hail McQueen as well.  I have a feeling I may live in these two polishes most of the fall 'cause they are such pretty neutrals.  A few days ago I ordered a bunch of the CG Vintage Vixen nail polishes as well.

Just saw Butter London's Tea with the Queen on Beauty Look Book and I'm thinking I need it.  Beautiful sheer pink.  I'm rapidly falling in love with this line of nail polishes.  Thank god I have a Ricky's in Soho!  Polish is smooth enough that I can actually apply it myself and have it look nice.   

Been wearing Emerald Fitzgerald this week from China Glaze's Vintage Vixen collection. Would never have been brave enough to wear dark emerald green polish in my 20s.  Definitely have to bring it to a nail salon though...I always screw up home manicures with dark polishes.

I do agree that is a bizarre name! But the writeup looks wonderful, and Tea With the Queen is a really pretty color, at least on her. I fear it would disappear on me, as I need a bit of color contrast on my nails because my hands are so pink (not white or cream).

Sabrina created a wicked lemming for me when she reviewed Roccoco nail polish in Re-Issue. Not available over here, alas.

bogsc, both of those look bee-yoo-ti-ful!  Butter London recs Yummy Mummy as THE perfect nude for everyone.  Those are definitely on my Lemming List!
ZZ, Re-issue looks scrumptious there, too.  Since you first mentioned it, I've been on the hunt for a duplicate.  No luck yet  :(

Had a manicure done with BL's All Hail McQueen and think it's a fabulous color.  Like Yummy Mommy, this one is going to work year round.  Still trying to get my hands on Tea with the Queen.  Have to check Ricky's again.

I have Yummy Mummy on my toes right now-- I've been searching forever for a taupe color that doesn't look weird on my very pink/purplish toes, this is it!

I want Branwen's Feather next. I never do my fingernails, just toes, so I can get pretty crazy with colors.

I'm really impressed with Butter London's wear as well.  All Hail McQueen really didn't show much wear (even at tips) for almost a week!

Oh, be still my beating heart! These look and sound like they might work for my over pink hands.

So many neutrals are too warm (too much yellow in them) for my hands. One time I put on a neutral without giving it much thought and even my SON said, "Um, Mom, are you sure you want to wear that color?" He was right - it clashed in the worst way with my skin tone.

I think I might have to try Tea with the Queen based on the picture. Maybe more!

Styyna, I know exactly what you mean. And I'm happy with the wear time, too.

You pink-handed peeps please let me know how it works out. I, too, never wear light polishes because they give me lobster paws.

I just finished giving myself a manicure with Yummy Mummy.

What a gorgeous color! To my eyes, it is a very pale taupe with a hint of lavender. And the best news is no lobster claws.

I also have Aston, and I am about to pull the trigger on Tea with the Queen, Fash Pack, British Racing Green, Scoundrel, and All Hail McQueen (which is called the winter version of Yummy Mummy).

I received but haven't tried:

Tea with the Queen
Blowing Raspberries - my kind of red
Knees Up - for my toes and maybe New Year's Eve

I got them from drugstore.com/beauty.com.

Update on Butter London's Tea with the Queen

I have pink hands and anything the least bit yellow in a polish looks obviously out of place.

I can wear this color as a great neutral. . .but I can't wear a lot of clothing colors with it. With blue, white, grey, black it will be great. Anything with red or yellow is going to catch and emphasize the tiny bit of yellow that is in this color. Now that's just against my skin. YMMV

It's very pretty and went on like a dream. Now to see how it wears.
