Butter London dupe.

Butter London is a brand I've always wanted to try but their £14 price tag always puts me off. I could spend hours at the little stand, stocked full of bright, bold, shades, filling my basket with a handful. After reading about Butter London 'The Black Night' on Nouvelle Daily, I was sure I had something similar in my nail polish collection. Cue; Barry M 'Black with Multi Glitter'.

Barry M 'Black with Multi Glitter' - Superdrug £2.99

Both polishes are packed with multi coloured glitter and both are opaque with, pretty much, one coat. I was, pleasantly, surprised when I used the Barry M polish, to find it dried quite quickly. Once dry they do resemble a semi-matte textured polish, which, I know, isn't everybody's cup of tea. After adding a glossy top coat on afterwards really makes the glitter sparkle even more.

My favourite thing about this polish has to be how the light really catches the glitter and it's something a little different, rather than just a plain black. I wish I could say the lasting time was fantastic but, sadly, it isn't however that's nothing a good quality top and base coat can't solve. Overall, I'm completely in love with this polish right now and I think it would be perfect for the party season ahead of us.


  1. I don't think you can go wrong with a good Barry M nail polish! They're so cheap but I find they're just as good as ones you would pay say £14 for like the Butter London brand! This looks gorgeous for the festive season!

    1. I totally agree with you! Thanks so much for having a read x

  2. This sounds SO pretty. I've never come across a black polish with glitter before... I'm so buying this!

  3. Ooh I have this one! Love it. Didn't even know it was a dupe for Butter London (which I also love, but find too expensive too!)
