Butter London Nail Varnish in Royal Navy

I've been eyeing Butter nail varnishes for a long time now. All the swatches I see online are gorgeous and I kept hearing great things about the formula and staying power but I couldn't quite bring myself to drop £12.50 on a nail varnish when my £2.99 Barry M jobs do me fine.

However, I'm on a quest to start choosing quality over quantity so I took advantage of the exchange rate while I'm Florida and decided to pick up a Butter polish, bearing in mind the $15 price tag equals a big saving over the UK price.

I've read a few great posts about navy nails over the last few weeks so I thought I'd combine my two nail varnish wants and go for a Butter London varnish in navy.

After a quick look in Ulta I decided to go for Royal Navy, which is one of those delicious blues that is so dark is can appear almost black and it's exactly what I was looking for.

Everything I'd read about the formula was right - the polish goes on even and one coat provides excellent full coverage. I've had this on for three days so far and there's no sight of even the tiniest chip - and I am not delicate with my nails so I usually find varnish doesn't last more than 48 hours on me without chipping.

Now the only problem is that I'm a definite convert... My Butter London wishlist is pretty darn healthy, which means my bank balance definitely isn't going to be!
