I picked this up after reading a review on this color. I like how this nail polish looks on me. It's a taupe with shimmer so the color looks very sophisticated. The staying power is about 4 to 5 days on me. Glad I bought it!

Oh Butter London, why must your beautiful polishes have such crappy substandard brushes? I have a love hate relationship with you. I love the colors and this one is no exception. A gorgeous neutral beige/tan/gold holo. While this is a holo it isn't in your face. You really have to be right up close to see it. This is office friendly and this is gorgeous. It has fine golden shimmers throughout and they are not only in the bottle but oh yes, they are on my nails. Oh this is a stunner for sure. I really like the little cornered bottles as they nest together so well and take up little space so they are perfect for storage. The cap pops off to reveal the brush beneath and it is easier to work with the rounded brush cap instead of the cornered rectangle shaped one. The brush is really small though and it takes numerous strokes to apply polish and I have small nails. If it takes me 2 or 3 strokes to do a pinky that normally I barely use the tip of a professional style brush on then imagine how many it takes to do a thumbnail. I didn't count but I think it was about 6. Now that makes the polish go on unevenly and tend to streak. I will say that the brush fans out well though and it easy to work with overall. But the professional style brushes that bargain Wet N Wild and Sally Hansen are using have spoiled me. I just thought for this much money they would give you a better quality brush. Oh well, overall this applies smoothly and stays where you lay it and does not run or pool. It does not drip off the brush like some tend to do. It is easily workable and does dry fairly fast and has a nice shine even though I did not top coat this. This isn't the best color for my fair skintone, and it looks tan/brown on me rather than beige/gold but I love it anyway. This is actually the same color as my Urban Decay Naked 2 palette box! I just noticed that since it is sitting right here. I used a coupon to get this, but I would pay full price, which is $15 now (eek!) even with the crappy brush. This is one you buy for the beautiful color, and isn't that what it's all about?

I coveted this polish forever before I actually plunked down the cash to buy it on my birthday. I am not usually a glitter kind of girl but I saw swatches of it and it looked so pretty.
I fell in love with the first coat. It goes on kind of sheer on the first coat, but with two coats it reached the desired opacity for me. It has the micro-glitter but it felt completely smooth on my nail. It's neutral but with a bit of a fun twist.
I'd definitely buy this again.

This is my first and only Butter London polish, which I purchased over the summer to wear in a wedding. If you aren't a huge fan of neutral shades because you like your nail colors to have a bit more pep, I think this color is a good option because it is a gorgeous color that is both work-friendly but not entirely dull. The shade also complimented my light neutral olive skin without making my hands look too pink or red. Seems like a silly thing to be concerned with but some polishes just DON'T work for my skin tone. My primary problem with this polish is that I can't get it to last without chipping or wearing within a day or so, even on my toes! I've tried it with and without a variety of base and top coats and it just doesn't want to last on my nails OR my toenails. Very disappointing, especially because it applies rather smoothly and only takes about 2-3 quick drying coats to get the opacity I want. It's inability to last--especially considering the price tag--is preventing me from purchasing further Butter polishes, even though I've been dreaming about Wallis.

The color is really pretty. The consistency is the the sheer side but 2 layers would look perfect. $14 for a nail polish is a little pricey. The color is hard to find a dupe though

I have nothing but good things to say about Butter polishes. They are dead on when it comes to color selection, and no one else that I've seen (short of the super-high-end-brands) comes even close to the depth of color that they are able to achieve. Butter is easy to apply and dries beautifully and lasts a long time (trust me, I know, I am so tough on my nails as a science teacher!). If it only cost a little less, I would have a million of these little bottles in my cabinet. It is worth the extra $ for this quality though.

Its a medium grey-brown-taupe with a microfine shimmer in an undiscript metallic. The shade leans too brown for my golden skintone. On my pink-based roommate it looks a lot better.
Also, its semi-sheer. Took 4 coats to reach bottle color.

I am very impressed with this polish. All Hail the Queen is a beautiful light golden brown. It's essentially a goldish holographic version of Yummy Mummy. However, I prefer this to Yummy Mummy. I feel like it applies more smoothly and the fine holographic glitter makes it look interesting without being obnoxious. If you like neutrals, but still want to have fun, this might be the polish for you.

Love this nail polish! The color is absolutely gorgeous and is very unique. Its a taupey, toffee shade (more toffee than taupe on the nails) with micro holographic sparkles. At first I wasn't all that impressed since paying $15 for it really sucked. But then wearing the color for a couple of days really started to win me over. Its so perfect for day-to-day wear, nothing obnoxious or bright. Just the perfect neutral taupe shade. Application was amazing, not streaky at all. After reading reviews from various places, i wasn't expecting much wear from this polish, maybe 3-4 days maximum. HOWEVER, with no top coat the polish stayed perfectly for almost a whole week! Definitely a good investment :)

I really like the formulation and color of this polish--its a glow-y, camel-y, shimmery taupy mushroom. The only thing I'm bummed about is that is almost identical to OPI for Sephora's Under my Trenchcoat, which I also own :(

Butter London in Canada is selling for $17.00 and it sure didn't matter to me when I bought "All Hail The Queen" (AHTQ) because I wanted it that bad (but I'm adding only 1 each of those expensive nail polishes to my collection).
I used 1 layer of base coat followed by 2 layers of creamy AHTQ, they dried fast. I'm happy with the application, and the formula is just right: 1 coat for a sheer looking chiffon effect, or 2 coats for a LIGHTER version of "My Private Jet"- meets-"Metro Chic"-combo. I think it's a pretty smart color. Might it be super tacky in the future? Who knows. So far "All Hail The Queen" color reminds my of chiffon textile, tea and some exotic gemstone.
I'm happy with my purchase and when this bottle I empty I probably would buy AHTQ again because I don't have anything like it.

I love this polish. It is the perfect neutral with the perfect edge (holo). I love the ButterLondon formula, good coverage with one coat, perfect with two. Easy to apply. Smooth and self-leveling. I think this is office appropriate with a little twist for you to enjoy. Very highly recommended, if you only but a few BL np, I suggest this be one. A shining star of the line.

This is a beautiful grayish brown color with a slight shimmer which only makes it look better on your hands. I am fair skinned and this color is almost a nude shade for me - giving just enough definition to my fingernails to flatter them and not just wash them out.
I apply two coats with a base and top coat. Highly recommend this if you like a relatively neutral nail but want some color.

For a long time I have resisted the newest color trends. When I saw this color in Ulta I thought "brown??". But the second time around I got it. Once I did my regular mani routine, I began to apply it. By the second coat I was in deep deep love. maybe even obsessed. I applied 3 coats and it is just the most beautiful color, chic and not over the top. I love the little holographic golden specs. Seriously, I only applied it once amd I am already going to get 2 more bottles. It will be my all time fav. Easy to apply, goes on well, opaque after that first coat. Great Brush. I also have Yummy Mummy which is nice too. So flattering. Would work with any skin tone.

Kind of a sparkly tan color, not very impressive in the bottle - but on the nails it's a super neutral, and I get tons of compliments every time I wear it.

Very unique color - this is like a more amped up disco version of Yummy Mummy. Both are super flattering and apply beautifully. I do need 3 coats for this, but the formula is so superb that it never feels thick or goopy. Lasts a week without chipping when used with the matching base and top coat. Perfect nude color for all-year round. I do, however, prefer Yummy Mummy slightly more.

Love this color :) I get compliments on it all the time. It's a taupey color with a pretty shimmer. I am wearing it today with 1 accent nail overlaid with Sally Hansen Big Money (taupe glitter with tiny flecks of lavender) and it looks gorgeous.

All Hail the Queen is one of the best Butter London polishes I have tried so far; I have about 10 of their polishes. This colour works well with my NC15 skin tone and is suitable for my work environment but still has enough of an edge that I enjoy wearing it. The application is smooth and dries quickly. With Essies's Good to Go top coat I get about a week's wear from this polish. The price is high, $17 Canadian, but regardless I like this polish so much that I will buy it again and again.

I have been obsessing over this color! I'm a big fan of all of butter polishes but this one is my favorite I've tried-- the color and application is so gorgeous. It's a neutral color without being plain or boring. So flattering & lasts for days with a top coat!

Sorry to rain on the parade... I was so excited to try this given the hype. I can't believe I shelled out $17 (here in Canada) for a np but I figured it was worth the splurge if it was all it was cracked up to be. Well, I'm disappointed with both the colour and the coverage. The colour is a little dirty- and dead-looking next to my NC15-20 skin. And the coverage is still on the sheer side even after 2 coats and I'm sorry, but with 3 kids, I don't have the time or energy for additional coats. I wish I could return this :-(
ETA: if you're looking for a great neutral np with edge AND opacity, try Revlon's Gray Suede.
