Butter London Hen Party

Butter London Hen Party is one of the shades from their Spring/Summer 2011 Collection. This sheer pearly opal tone with iridescent pale blue shimmer applied well using 2 coats, but if you aren't a fan of sheer polishes, you may want to pass on this one. I actually like this shade, but there are probably similar ones out there with a lower price tag. This would work well in Frankening as a "secret shimmer" ingredient.

Below: Here is Hen Party shown over Sally Hansen Grey Area, so it also works nicely as a color-changing top coat, much like the CND Effects line.

Do I love Hen Party? Not really. While the formula is nice and the subtle shade pretty, there are other alternatives available without the $14.00 price tag. Nude Nightie from the Revlon Sweet Nothings line comes to mind, but the shimmer in that shade is pink-based. Do you know of a similar shade that has the blue shimmer?

  3. There's other polishes that cost a lot less that look like this. I like an opal look on a deep base color.

  4. I want to say Zoya's Dharma is similar if not the same.

  6. It reminds me a lot of Illamasqua Prism, but that's not really a cheaper alternative.

  7. Reminds me of Sally Hansen Prisms, South Sea Pearl. I'll bet there is something like it in the Star/Fire Opals too. I don't think I'm much help since those are discontinued and hard to find though.
