Lillabet's Jubilee - butter London

It's been awhile since I've had a post. Sorry, but I've been super sick! But this post was definitely worth waiting for! Today, I have a gorgeous polish for you. It's called Lillabet's Jubilee. The color is a commemorative color in honor of the Queen of England's 60th anniversary of the accession to the throne. It's a silvery, lavender metallic foil, heavily infused with holographic glitter.

Anyone who knows me knows I love two things - butter London polish and anything to do with royals. I'm borderline obsessed with them. I stayed up and watched all 16 hours of William and Kate's wedding on BBC America. Yeah, that's dedication. So, when I saw that butter was coming out with a special lacquer in honor of the Queen, I knew I had to get it!

Gorgeous! One coat of Lillabet's Jubilee
This polish is like all of the other butter London foil/metallic polishes I have. It is a one coater, but two will smooth out any bald spots or awkward looking stroke marks.

While the polish is drying, it may look more silver than lavender to you, but once it's totally dry, it definitely looks more lavender. But, it did get me thinking.... how close is this polish to Diamond Geezer, which is the silver foil that is a butter London staple.

I put them with a purple background, so that you can actually see the purple in Lillabet's Jubilee. They do look very similar together, but are definitely different.

The difference looks very subtle on camera, but they are definitely not the same. You can see the lavender metallic flakes in the polish.

All in all, I love this polish! I'm pretty much a sucker for anything butter London puts out. I especially love their foils (Diamond Geezer and Big Smoke are two of my faves). This polish doesn't disappoint. It's only available on butter London's website right now, but it may pop up in Nordstrom's and Ulta later. The same thing happened with No More Waity, Katie, another royal commemorative polish that butter put out last year in honor of the Royal Wedding.

A new favorite!

Puppies and Pawlish gives Lillabet's Jubilee two big paws up!! Another thing we like here at Puppies and Pawlish is when daddy pulls in the driveway from work!

What's out there? 
The pups enjoy watching out the window every chance they get. They are definitely people watchers!! 

Until next time.....
