Butter London Bumster

I did it. I finally found a Butter London I wanted to spend money on. Butter Londons cost $31 or thereabouts in New Zealand. I've looked at their stand a few times but never found anything super special. Then I saw Bumster. I have been looking for a muted mustard yellow for so long!

Before committing to such a large purchase, I googled reviews on my Mums phone and found that it was a good polish formula wise, most people were just thrown off by the colour. Calling it baby poo etc. But when you are actively looking for a muted mustard, it's a different story.

Butter Londons and Chanel seem to have the same brush and formula goin' on. It was incredibly smooth and gave close to 100% coverage on the first coat. I love Bumster to pieces.

This was my manicure over Christmas, not very festive but I thoroughly enjoyed wearing it! I used OPI Samoan Sand for the moons. I also used Liquid Palisade to create the moon shapes.

Just a little bit of history to Bumster, it was released in a Alexander McQueen themed collection and was named after the place Alex wore his pants I think. Something like that.


  1. Oh man, I feel big time for you guys and your polish prices. I thought $22 in Oz was bad enough. $31....ouch. I got a few from Ozsale recently when they had them marked down to $13.95...maybe check out that site and see if they ship to NZ?

  2. $31 for BL? And I thought the $17 we paid was a lot!

    Glad you got your lemming tho!

  3. Definitely worth it sometimes to splurge for a color you really want! I really like this color--ugly-pretty. I would definitely wear it! Congrats on fulfilling your lemming :)

  4. Thanks for your comments guys! I didn't even think of looking online (doh!) but I will have a look around.

    I think I may need to plan a trip to Aus next year and stock up :P

  5. Fabulous color and amazing manicure! I love the semi-nude half moon look!


Thank-you for leaving a comment, I read every one! :)
