Butter London - Teddy Girl Nail Polish

I am a new lover of Butter London nail polishes. They have a smooth, creamy application and the colours are always identical to what you see in the bottle.

Teddy Girl is a pale pink cream with no glitter/shimmer or frost.
It is opaque on two coats and lasts for a decent amount of time with a top coat. I love this colour for all seasons and on all skin tones. The contrast against all skin tones is violent and shocking while still being completely wearable on a day-to-day basis.

The only fault I can find with this nail polish is that the formula might be a little too thin. The reason I say this is because I find it hard to keep a neat line near my cuticles. The edges often look a little rough and can take a while with a cuticle pusher or a cotton bud with nail polish remover to make them even. I have left my edges untouched for the purpose of this review but it is not difficult to clean up the edges if you like a flawless application.

I have tried finding a lower cost dupe for this colour but it is proving to be incredibly difficult. The closest I could find is Sephora by OPI's 'Dear Diary' which is a pale pink but not quite as bright as Teddy Girl.

I only have cream finishes in the line and love them all, they have really great formulas. I was going to buy 'No More Waity, Katie' but didn't after I read your review. I have read that the shimmers and glitters aren't very good but the creams are amazing, so far I have to agree.

I actually find that all of Butter London's polishes are pretty lacklustre in comparison to my other favourite brands. I put up with the terrible formula because I love the colours but they always chip and peel after a day on my nails. Thankfully i've never paid full price for any of my colours otherwise i'd be very disappointed. For 3-free polishes around the same price range, I much prefer Priti, however this colour is very nice.
