Oh thank the lord, someone in Australia is stocking butter London polishes! The Harrison’s Pharmacy chain has a teeny-weeny little display in the Broadway store that I could barely find, but glory of glories, they have a small amount of stock available!

The Old Bill is an antique gold metallic polish that’s a true two coat wonder – two coats gave full opacity without any of the bad streaking, lumpiness or general PITA business that metallics can provide. There’s a small amount of brush strokes visible, but nothing awful enough that a generous coat of Seche Vite can’t fix.

I have a pewter metallic nail polish that I absolutely wear to death (Kit Cosmetics Move Up), and The Old Bill is a perfect warm compliment to that.
Removal was typical to most fine-grain metallic polishes. A little reluctant to budge at first, but nowhere as difficult to remove as a glitter polish. I just soaked a cotton pad with remover, held it in place for a few seconds and then wiped away, repeating as needed.

Glorious day, glorious day, I can impulse purchase butter London at last! I’m looking forward to trying Rosie Lee (she said, sipping on a nice cup of Rosie as she types), British Racing Green and Chimney Sweep.

You can buy Butter London The Old Bill from Adore Beauty.
