Butter London Tea With The Queen

September 3, 2010

Butter London’s Tea With the Queen nail lacquer is neutral, understated and polished. Retails for $14 and described perfectly on ButterLondon.com as being “on the pink side of tan, very neutral.” It’s a sheer cream that applies smoothly without streaks. Being on the sheer side, it’s slightly transparent, but not so sheer that the color is invisible. The manicure below is with 2 coats. It’s like a tinted nude pink tan. It goes well my Pink Little Stam and matches my favorite flavor of Izze in Sparkling Grapefruit.

In natural outdoor light, no flash, it was slightly cloudy today:

Here it is with 3 coats versus 2 coats, the different is subtle but in real life it looks richer and more opaque with the extra coat:

Compared to a few other pink nudes, no swatches, but I do have swatches of Jade Rose and Inattendu on other posts. These all apply true to what you see in the bottle.

I found mine at ButterLondon.com.

    The color looks lovely on you! I have this one as well, but it seems to go on a bit streaky for me. I love the color for a beautiful, polished look that is very work appropriate. Your manicures always look so professional, do you use a base? I wish I could get mine to look as smooth and even as you! What's your secret?
