Butter London Toff Review & Comparison

After swatching some of my Fall nail polish picks, I decided that I had to wear Butter London Toff on all of my nails.

Butter London Nail Polish

What a wonderful application this was.  I could have been done with one coat; but of course, applied two.  It was so creamy and shiny.

Butter London Nail Polish

I went over to the Butter London site to see how they described Toff and here is what they said "A darker, dustier, brownish variation on a rose pink nail lacquer.  Stop to smell them. The roses, not the toffs." After reading this description, I couldn't help myself and had to Google "Toff".  So here is the definition: "A member of the upper classes, especially one who is elegantly dressed."  After this intense research, I decided that "Toff" is a great name for this polish.  I wore this to my daughter's play today and felt pretty elegant wearing it:) 

Butter London Essie Nail Polish

After applying Toff, I was reminded that it looked a heck of a lot like Essie Angora Cardi.  In the bottle, they look pretty darn close.  I will do a comparison swatch for you in the near future.  I also received a new Julep shade that looks very similar too.  I hope to find some dupes for you in case you don't feel like spending $14 on the Butter London.

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is gorgeous! I've always kind of written Toff off, but I'm reconsidering that now, it's so pretty!

  3. Toff is a pretty color, it's the perfect "in-between pink & red color"

  9. I'm not a huge fan of mauve nails OR butter london (I think they're too overpriced) but I do like this particular shade! It looks really good on you.
