Pros- The colors are REALLY pretty. As you can see in the photos, the blue-ish gray I picked out is a gorgeous shade. This formula applied really nicely with two coats, but I have also read the formulas not being up to par. Also, if chemicals and what not is important to you, Butter London's polishes contain NO Formaldehyde, NO Toluene, and NO DBP. Don't know what DBP is? Either did I, that's when my ever reliable Google came into play. *DBP, acts as a binder to improve the lasting power of nail lacquer. But it's also been linked to cancer in lab animals, and underdeveloped genitals and other long-term fertility problems in newborn boys.
Cons-The price, I have a hard enough time shelling out $8 for an Essie polish that purchasing a Butter London polish is not going to be at the top of my list. That being said, there is also more polish in an Essie (13.5 ml) and OPI (15 ml) bottle than Butter London (11 ml). Although I like the look of the packaging, I think the brush handle is too short. It does not feel natural to hold and it simply makes my hands feel too big to use it.
Overall-Not worth the price, go spend your money on two Essie or OPI polishes instead!
