Butter London Yummy MummyI hadn’t yet tried any Butter London nail polish, but was curious as I had heard good things about them. Then Nordstrom ran their buy-2-get-1 sale on Butter London, so I figured it was a great time to give them a whirl. I picked up Knackered, All Hail the Queen and this beauty, Yummy Mummy.

First off, the formula. You know how important it is to me that a polish (especially one that’s a high-end polish) have a great formula. This Butter London Yummy Mummy has an amazing formula. As good as the best of Chanel – even though the color is light there was no streaking, no pulling, no pooling at the cuticles. Easy peasy, as the Brits say!

Second, the color. Yummy Mummy is a nice, mid-toned taupe. Perfect for the office, but with a slight edge, which is really my sweet spot. What makes it special is a veining of silver shimmer throughout. It adds incredible shine and depth that takes this beyond an ordinary creme but doesn’t stray into glitter territory. I don’t have any dupes – I’ve pulled a few that are similar in tone, including Chanel Frenzy, Butter London All Hail the Queen, China Glaze Fast Track and Chanel Beige. These are all different enough that it’s certainly worth having Yummy Mummy in addition to all these others.

This is two coats over Barielle Ridge Filling base coat and topped with Poshe top coat. Work appropriate with an edge, indeed!

Butter London Yummy Mummy is US$14 and is available widely, including at Sephora, Nordstrom, and of course,
