I paired this with Marrow and love it--it spiced up the color perfectly! It gives any polish just the right amount of sheen. I also tried it alone and think it makes a nice simple statement for when you don't want too much color on your nails, but don't want to use a neutral color. It's like the frosting on a cake!

This overcoat is amazing. It looks great with every color I've paired it with, but goes above and beyond when paired with black or another especially dark color.
subtle but powerful

This color is awesome! Worn alone it is subtle but makes a statement. Overtop of something else, it adds that special something I've been looking for!

Love this overcoat. It's so rocker chic when worn over dark colors. I absolutely love it!
Glossy, duochrome-y, lovely

I ordered Petrol to compare to Knackered. It's so lovely on. Very very glossy, but not metallic. As previous reviewers have said, it's very sheer on its own,requiring several coats for full color. However, I initially painted a test coat over an opaque coat of light gray I was already wearing and it was fully opaque immediately. You could do a light base coat of something neutral underneath first and you'd be good to go.

I am a huge BL fan, with over 120 Butter London polishes, and this is by far one of my favorites. It applies smoothly, has good dry time, and can be worn by itself or layered. Over black or dark blue, you can really pull out a moody shifty duochrome. By itself, it's a bit more subtle, but equally awesome!
Beautiful & Unique

Beautiful turquoise/purple duochrome shimmer that can be layered over other polishes or worn on its own. I've only worn it on its own and the color is to die for. The finish isn't quite metallic but it's extremely shiny and glass-like. And the color shift between the magnificent teal and the rich purple- something about it reminds me of a peacock's feather. Very unique and a must-have!
This polish is extremely sheer, it required four coats for me to build it up to opacity. But the results were worth those extra coats. As always with BL, no problems with application or wear and drying time was a snap.
Love this one! Recommended and would definitely buy it again.

This color is one of my favorites!! A friend of mine tried this on at my house and immediately went and ordered it. Beautiful payoff and shimmer. Absolutely worth the money.
