Butter London – The Sweet Spot: Swatch and Review

A couple of months ago I signed up for the Allure Beauty Box and I am really excited that this months box had polish in it. Not just any polish, but polish from my favorite brand, Butter London! The color I received is a simply gorgeous dusty pink called The Sweet Spot.

The Sweet Spot is part of a new collaboration set available now on the Butter London website. The set contains 3 other fashion sized (ie. mini) polishes in really pretty colors.

The color is easy to describe as a soft, dusty pink creme. The formula was very smooth and applied beautifully. In my swatches, I used two thin coats for full opacity and topped with a coat of Seche Vite.

I love this color! As we near the end of summer, this is a perfect pink to carry me into early Fall and beyond. I wore this by itself for a full day but decided to go ahead and do some nail art. I went with a bit of double stamping and dots 🙂

I stamped first with M Polish – Apricot Delight and then with Funky Fingers – Dark Knight using Bundle Monster plates BM-XL17 and BM-XL18.

I’m super pleased that this showed up in my box and it makes me want to try the rest of the polishes in this set. Aside from the mini set, there are an additional 6 full sized polishes available with this set and I am loving them as well. You can view them all here: http://www.butterlondon.com/Collections/Arm-Candy/

The only bad thing is that this particular polish is only available as a mini. This is one thing Butter London does that drives me absolutely bananas. They release these gorgeous pretties as part of a mini set and then don’t release them as full-sized. It’s a shame, because I would nab a full sized bottle of The Sweet Spot in a heartbeat.

What a great transition shade. It’s perfect for summer to fall!


[…] me a survey) they do not include enough nail polish! It’s been months since the last polish (Butter London – The Sweet Spot). Luckily they managed to stave off my cancellation a bit longer with the inclusion of Trust Fund […]
