Quick Swatch and Review: Butter London – Big Smoke

Another quickie swatch and review of another polish I picked up on clearance. When Ulta did their big Butter London closeout (I think they were 3/$15) last year, Big Smoke was one of the polishes I grabbed – and I had never used it before!

Blue, like purple, is another color I don’t often go for. However, I was looking to do a darker nail and glanced at my IG to see what colors I hadn’t worn lately and blue, specifically a dark blue, was nowhere to be seen, so I looked at my swatch sticks and picked this one!

Big Smoke is a dark, shimmery smokey blue. In typical Butter London fashion, the formula, while thin, goes on smoothly and perfectly!

I ended up being totally pleased with how this color looked with my skin tone and simultaneously disgruntled with myself for not “discovering” it sooner. Grab it is you are a fan of blues!
