Butter London Swinger

Butter London Swinger is this garish glittery green…how’s that for alliteration?

Butter London Swinger is not exactly the color I’d think of when I think of swingers. I picture bad carpeting…on the floor and the people involved. Even in the 70s there were some questionable hygiene moments and no one really started shaving nether regions until the early to late 80s. I guess there was a lot of grass-green shag carpeting that was rampant in the UK during the 60s, which inspired the owner of Butter London to call this particular shade Swinger.

I still don’t see the correlation.

Formula for this is your typical Butter London glitter – a bit gritty. It was also a bit moody in dry time. I’ve had some Butter London glitters dry as soon as I finished one hand. This one was a bit longer. Almost ten minutes between coats. Like other Butter London glitters, it didn’t really sparkle and shine for the camera like other glitters I’ve swatched and sported. The images below are two coats.

If you’re a fan of green, I’d say get this. While this is not my favorite Butter London glitter, it certainly is pretty enough to remain in my collection…despite its vulgar name.

To be honest, in the bottle, I was reminded of Oscar the Grouch green. Aren’t you?

In the bottle still Oscar green, but on the nail it reminds me of grass.

I don’t know what or how Butter London does to their glitter, but somehow they managed to make their glitters dull and lifeless…the only exception to that is The Black Knight. To this day that is my go-to black glitter polish. It still makes me swoon after a year of owning it.
