Butter London - Disco Biscuit

I was very excited to see at the weekend that Boots is now stocking Butter London! I have seen Butter London polishes on blogs and been very impressed. I have also tried Knackered, and liked it, so I was very keen to try out some more. Tonight I have Disco Biscuit to show you.

Disco Biscuit is a very sheer, bright pink, with lots of tiny purpley-blue glitter particles. This is two coats of Barry M Shocking Pink as a base (because Disco Biscuit really is sheer!) and then two coats of Disco Biscuit, and two coats of topcoat. Disco Biscuit does dry rather dull and a little rough, so I found you really do have to pile on the top coat.

I think this is pretty, without it blowing me away. I was expecting a bit more, somehow.  Formula was fine, although perhaps it could be less sheer. And the glitter just wasn't as visible as I'd hoped.

Butter London polishes are available in larger branches of Boots, for £12 each. I was a bit shocked at the price, I have to say! That's twice the price of a China Glaze, and four times the price of a standard Barry M! If the polish was really amazing I wouldn't mind paying it, but I don't think this is four times nicer than a Barry M.


  1. That's a real shame, it looks stunning in the bottle. I've picked up a couple with matching lip gloss in TK Maxx recently, and found the glitters to be lovely (Rosie Lee and West End Wonderland) They were only £10 then for the duo, which is a bit more reasonable, £12 for one polish is a bit steep.

    1. I agree, I wouldn't mind £12 if it was a real stunner.

      I've also got the Black Knight, so I'll see if that's better.

  2. Ohhh I adore butter London! I came across it at a butter salon at Seattle airport when I was in the US and have been addicted ever since. I'm pretty excited that boots are stocking it now - though perhaps not at the cost of £12! I've got all of mine so far from eBay a bit cheaper but you can't always find all the colours. Disco biscuit looks cute! I think diamond geezer is one of my favourites. The bottles look just so gorgeous too!!

    1. Yes, I liked the bottles too. THey're nice and neat when you have several lined up, which I like.


I absolutely love comments! But please don't spam me with links to your sales website here!.
