Butter London - Victoriana

Muted tealish blue with silver microshimmer

I'm slowly building up my Butter London collection, this is one of my latest acquisitions courtesy of ebay.




I'd seen Victoriana on several blogs and really liked it but for some reason I'm reluctant to pay full retail for Butter London so when it popped up on ebay I snapped it up if not for a bargain price then less than the RRP of £12.

Victoriana is a slightly dusty, muted teal leaning blue with masses of silver shimmer, so much so that it almost looks speckled.  And as you can see in the third pic it looks more teal in the sunlight.

Swatch shown is 2 coats, no top coat.  And application was great.   This has the new style bottle with the removable cap.

Victoriana was from the 2010 and I think was part of the Alexander McQueen collection

I'm really glad I picked this up, it's a gorgeous and unique polish.

  4. I think Victoriana is the only Butter London in my wishlist. I love the swatches I see in people's blogs but same as you, I'm really reluctant to pay the full price for it!
