Butter London Spring/Summer 2011: Lady Muck

Lady Muck is one of the shades from Butter London's Spring/Summer Collection, and I'm not sure why it's not on their site at the moment with the others. Is it possible that it sold out already? At any rate, this is my first time using Butter London and unfortunately for my wallet, it probably won't be the last time!

Below: Lady Muck is a pale blue-grey shade with delicate silvery blue micro shimmer. The official description is: Colour: Powdery periwinkle blue, slightly on the grey side and infused with pearl pigment for a soft, sexy sheen. Definition: A term for an arrogant, conceited woman; a snob. I don't consider myself a snob, but I do think I'll wear this shade quite a bit--it's dusty, subtle, a color that can be worn for any season, and it has just enough sparkle to add a hint of elegance.

Below: My first thought when I saw Lady Muck was that it resembled China Glaze Sea Spray. A side-by-side comparison proves that they are indeed quite different.

Below: I may not be a snob, but I like my crack--China Glaze Crackle, that is! This is Cracked Concrete over Lady Muck. Nothing worse than a snobby crack addict!

I've been anxious to try Butter London polishes for quite a while, and this one did not disappoint me. The formula is on the thicker side, but the application was quick and easy. I used 2 coats and had no streaking after the first coat. The formula seemed to flow well and the drying time was minimal. The bottle size is a little smaller than average--.40 fl. oz., and they are priced at $14.00 each. They seem to have some beautiful shades, and thanks to everyone who commented on my earlier post about this brand for your color suggestions!


  1. Hey! That crackle combo is cool! You're changing my mind about the crackles now... Haha, they're growing on me.

  2. Love Butter London polishes. I have about 4 of them. Love to buy much more. Wish they'd have a sale! This is a fantastic shade. I'll add it to my list. Love the crack top coat. Got to buy those!

  3. Gorgeous colour, I love how visible the shimmer in and I'm always a sucker for the dusty, greyed out shades. The bird on the bottle is new I think, I have a couple of Butter Londons and I'm pretty sure they don't have that. Cute though.

  4. Love that crackled polish look, want to try that on my toes someday. Looks so amazing and gorgeous on your finger nails.

  5. Butter London is a great brand. Rosie Lee is one of my complete faves.

    Lady Muck is a woman who is actually much further down the social scale than she'd like to be. Gives herself airs and graces when everyone knows she's probably 'fur coat and no knickers'.

  6. What a great color, I like this one without the crack. It reminds me of Orly "Pixie Dust"

  7. I love your nails! I prefer Muck over Sea Spray

  8. Wow, that's gorgeous! Muck appears to be pretty unique. I might have a lemming here.:-)

  9. It sounds odd, but this muck is beautiful. lol I love these versions of dove grey.

  10. This is beautiful. I wish the price point was cheaper but it's so stunning I'm afraid I'd cave and get it. O_o

  11. Wow, Mary, Lady Muck is a gorgeous color - and you pull it off so well! Of course, I've never seen a polish you COULDN'T wear! :)

    I love many butter London colors (so many unique shades and shade/finish combos!) but as they're on the expensive end they're definitely a luxury item for me right now and I rarely purchase.

    HOWEVER, once in a while (maybe 2-4x/year?) butter London shows up on or (one or both - can't remember for sure)! The shades for sale are usually from the past season or earlier but that doesn't bother this girl! ;) Just a little FYI in case you enjoy bargain-hunting and didn't know butter London appears from time to time on one or two of the discount "boutique" sites!

  12. This is a gorgeous shade! Love that macro shot.
