Butter London Art of Alchemy Set: Review and Swatches

Butter London Art of Alchemy Set: Review and Swatches

The holidays are coming and I've got a great set to help you out if you are looking for a fantastic gift for someone this year. The Art of Alchemy set by Butter London retails for $65 (on sale right now at Ulta for $48.75!), and it contains 6 full sized polishes and 2 nail art tools. I picked up this set because 3 of the 6 colors were ones that I was planning to get in the future: Cotton Buds, Brown Sugar, and Goss. When Butter London first debuted the set, I knew I wanted it, but didn't want to splurge the $65 for it. That's a lot of money to drop at one time on just 6 nail polishes. So I waited and ended up getting this during Black Friday with a 30% off coupon. Much better, I'd say!

So far I've only tried out Pillar Box Red (besides the swatches), but I'm sure you all know by now that I love Butter London's formula. They have not disappointed me yet!

Left to Right: Goss and Full Steam Ahead

 

Goss - A shimmery light golden pink, this has a satin finish to it. 

Full Steam Ahead (Set Exclusive) - A midtoned gray with a cream finish. As you can see in the swatch, it dries darker than it looks in the bottle. 

Left to Right: Cotton Buds and Brown Sugar

 

Cotton Buds - A beautiful bright white with a cream finish. Fully opaque after two coats.

Brown Sugar - A very warm shimmery copper base with gold glitter. 

Left to Right: Chocka and Pillar Box Red

 

Chocka (Set Exclusive) - A very deep (almost black) plum with silvery shimmer to it.

Pillar Box Red - A bright classic red with a glossy cream finish. Full review in my last post-- here.
