Beautiful spring/ summer color, you need 3 coats of it to get the color in the bottle, very similar to Sally Hansen coral reef if you dont wanna spend money on a nail polish

I took off a star because the 1st coat goes on streaky, but the 2nd coat glides on and is perfect. This color is the perfect shade of salmon. I don't know what others are talking about when they say it chips. Most polish on my fingers, start to chip in about 4 days and Trout Pout lasted 6. I always use a top coat, to prolong chipping, and would never go with out it, so my comparisons all involve top coat. Trout Pout outlasted any other polish I've ever used.Some of the people on this thread are saying that it chipped in 1 day, but that was probably without top coat, and most polish without top coat would chip rather quickly. To me Trout Pout has better lasting power than any of my other polishes and the color is fantastic. Perfect on my light olive skin, and killer with a tan. It is such a beautiful color, I can't stop looking at my hands.

I love the colors for Butter London. But it chips off the next day. I even used the base and top coat by Butter London hoping it would make a difference. Very disappointed! For the price they charge it should last longer than a day

The color of this polish is a 5, but the overall product is not. The formula is streaky with opacity being reached at 2 or 3 coats depending on how expertly YOU apply it. It is by no means a fool proof formula. It does dry relatively fast and creates a beautiful color. I find this only lasts on my nails about a day and then chips, which is lame. I found that it will last on my toe nails about a week if I use OPI Natural Nail Strengthener on top of it. If I don't put a top coat on this it will last on my toes for a few days then chip. I make sure I use a base with this polish. Normally I use OPI Natural Nails Base Coat, but I am experimenting with CND's Stickey Base Coat and using the "stickey sandwich" technique to see if that will extend the life of this pretty, but poor performing polish.
This is my first Butter London polish and I don't think I will buy more colors from them, unless I fall in love with a polish from them and there are no dupes. I just think for the price there are better performing polishes. The bottle is pretty and I feel like that is mostly what you are paying for, but for the price you get a weird pop off cap and a crappy brush applicator that makes me think of Bon-Bon polishes. You get very little leverage from these because you have very little brush and handle to work with. I am all for beautifully designed packaging, but it kills me when functionality falls to the way side. I'd rather have an ugly product that performs beautifully than a beautifully design, crap product.
Update: I used CND Stickey base and Essie Good to Go! top coat and it really prolonged the life of this polish. I had a couple nails that chipped on the next day after painting, but most of my nails looked great two days later. They had a little tip wear, but the polish was securely anchored. These two products seemed to overcome some of the issues I had with this polish. I am so please as I do really love this color.

Love the colour (salmon pink) but its a streaky mess and too creamy 'n' thick for my liking. Oh not to mention, it lasted only one day on me. By the second day it had already chipped quite a bit. No repurchase for me.

When I saw this in Ulta, I immediately fell in love with the color. At the time, I was using a similar colored Sally Hansen one-coat type polish that was way too thick for my liking, so I was longing for something of the same color, without the thickness. Well.. I definitely got what I wanted.
I brought this home very eager to apply it and see how gorgeous it was, especially since I had heard how beautifully and perfectly Butter London polishes apply. Well.. others might, but this one doesn't.
When I first applied it, it was absolutely streaky after two coats. I was so disappointed at how terrible it looked! The streaks made it look like a super cheap, dollar store polish (I've actually had better luck with that as far as opacity) and I was very saddened. Butter London is not cheap ($14 is the price I had to fork over) and because of the results I had, I was very disappointed.
I recently retried this and found 3 thick coats makes it workable. However, I would not buy this again and I'm also very wary to buy another Butter London polish.

I have 23 Buter London colors (with Trout Pout being one of my faves) and I ALWAYS use the BL foundation and top coat (two coats) and have NEVER experienced chipping before 5 days of wear. I type all day, wash my hands at least 50 times per day, wear latex gloves all day and haven't had a problem with my polish. I actually gave all my other brand polishes away and refuse to wear anything else. Most BL polishes only require 2 coats, a few 3, but I can put a foundation coat, two polish coats and two coats of top-coat on and have my nails totally done and looking great in 30 minutes, then go straight to bed and wake up with no nail issues. If it's going on streaky, you're putting it on too thin. Don't be afraid to have a little extra on your brush, it will dry just as quickly. Alwys use two coats of Butter London's Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat and I promise your polish will stay on longer. Everyone thinks I've had a gel manicure because the colors are so smooth and shiny. I've turned quite a few people on to Butter London. I'm so nuts over this stuff, I think I'm gonna start my own Butter London fan club! I just ordered three more colors and if my husand finds out I swear he's gonna move me and my BL collection to the guest room lol.

I have a few colors from Butter London and I have enjoyed them. Trout pout is a bit different though. It is streaky and I have never experienced that from BL. Yummy Mummy and Slapper are not at all streaky, but they don't wear as long as some of my other less expensive polishes. Trout pout is beautiful and unique but expect to have to take it off in a day or two unless you can live with chipped nails. *gasp*

I searched all over for this when Nordstrom was out of all the new BL colors. Finally found it at Ulta and was so excited! It's a pretty salmon colored pink, but nothing special. It's a little darker on the nails than it looks in the bottle. The formula is pretty thick and goes on fairly well, like other BL polishes.
But this did not wear well at all:( With a base coat, 2 coats of Trout Pout and top coat it chipped after just a couple days.
I would give it a 3.5 stars if I could because it's a little above average but nothing great, and def not worth the price. I'd rather buy some of the fun China Glaze or Essie summer colors.

I love this color, it could be my favorite for spring/summer. Alas, this is the thickest, most streaky polish I have tried in a long time. It also chips after one day. I've read that to work properly one needs to purchase the butter london nail foundation and top coat. I am not wasting more of my money on bL products, I have 4 colors and while unique and beautiful, the application is complete garbage.

The colour is beautiful. It's a salmon peachy coral that sometimes looks more pink, sometimes coral, depending on the light, with a creme finish. I though it might be similar to essie's Tart Deco, but Trout Pout leans a lot more pink, which is pretty.
Everything else about this polish is just awful though! The packaging is very impractical, having to take off the cap before you screw open the top is annoying. The brush is too short and slim to work well and the formula is extremely streaky. Where I live, Butter London polishes cost 17 € (!) and for that price the quality of the product is a total rip off.

I love this color!!! It's the perfect spring color for me. I do find it streaky & a little hard to work with, but after couple coats & a top coat it looks fine. I think it's a bit pricey for nail polish, but I love the color so much I guess it's worth it lol.

I love the color of this nail polish.It is so perfect for spring.As the other reviewers have stated,it is very streaky and you must apply two coats. I found that even though I used the Butter London base and top coats ,it started chipping the first day.

The Butter London website describes this shade as cantaloupe, pale, retro. Cantaloupe?!? This is not a cantaloupe color! This is more of a matte salmon pink color, which can look juvenile on some adults. It applies streaky. Even after 2 coats, I can still spot visible nail lines. It usually lasts for about 3 days before it starts to chip away, which is not bad. And it can be removed easily. I have mixed feelings about this, but I don't think I would repurchase.

I usually find a 'staple' color for each season and this one is the one for this Spring/Summer. I spotted it on a nail blog and instantly went out to buy it just because I've been searching for the perfect Summer coral and this one doesn't disappoint. It is a 2-coater but not thin coats, just a nice even coat will do the trick. As with all Butter polishes, the chipping is minimal if you use the right top coat, and it looks stunning against my olive skin. My friend also got it and she's very light skinned and it looked so pretty on her toes. I wore it to an art festival yesterday and I literally got stopped 3 times by people wanting to know my nail color. Brilliant.

Trout Pout is a creamy coral pink, like salmon pink or flamingo pink, very bright and perfect for spring/summer. It took about 2 coats for full opacity, it applies pretty thickly. I can't wait to wear this all summer!

:-( I am so sad to say this but this does not go on smooth at all, its very streaky and looks horrible. I had a love a first sight moment with this and bought it on the spot, its gonna kill me to return it but I think I will be sticking with OPI from now on. But the color and packaging of all the Butter London's are stunning.
