The color drew me in. Everything else about it was bad. From the consistency to how quickly it chips. Don't waste your money.

The most beautiful color in the bottle, the most terrible application on the nail. This is hands down the worst nail polish formula I have ever used. Brush gets goopy after doing one or two nails but it is also runny at the same time, leaving the polish to puddle at the tips of the nails. Needs 3 coats to be wearable in my opinion but by that time the polish is a big mess on your nails. I have tried this polish over and over in hopes I can make it work because the color is lovely, but it always leaves me fuming and angry that I purchased it and that I wasted my time re-trying it. 2 dollar drug store bargain polishes are better, do not buy this.

Love the color, hate the formula. This goes on a beautiful sparkly blue red, almost the perfect shade of red. With a top coat this polish really pops. I have used "3 free" nail polishes before and they stay much longer than this one. Within the first day of wearing, it chipped. Probably lasted a few hours, however it's a pain to remove. Ironic?

LOVE THIS!! Butter London Chancer is a gorgeous dark red microglitter suspended in a red jelly base. This is a can't-stop-looking-at-my-nails color! Sexy, flirty, and still classy. Opaque in 2 coats, no problems with wear. One of my BL favorites and one of my favorite reds.

Chipped within 45 minutes of application. I've read it as being a party polish, but really -- not even that. Too bad, because it is a gloriously beautiful polish.

While Chancer is a gorgeous color, the formula and unoriginality make it an average polish. It's a bold, slightly blue-toned red base with dense red glitter, and makes a great alternative to the average red nail. Unfortunately, the formula is thick and gloopy, and doesn't spread or cover the nail evenly. I had to apply three coats to achieve full opacity, and each coat felt like sandy modeling glue and took ages to dry. Chancer also dries down to a matte finish with a gritty texture so a thick, shiny topcoat is necessary. I've worn this polish multiple times, and each time it chips within a day or two (two being the maximum). I change my polish frequently, but even for me the wear on this one is disappointing, especially from a relatively high-end nail polish brand. You can easily find a red glitter polish with a better formula and at a better price (for example, China Glaze's Ruby Pumps).

Tried for the first time this week and made this makeup alley account just to write this review to warn everyone not to waste their $14 on an absolutely horrible polish by butter London called chancer. Color is a deep red with major sparkle and glitter however glitter polishes can be tricky in formulation this one takes the case at worst I have ever tried and it's $14!!! Other formulations of butter London are absolutely divine and last for weeks with no chipping, like HRH, knees up, fairy lights, and all others with that same formulation and all the creme formulations are all good. It is just the glitter formulation that is the worst of them all ever by any brand. Total night and day with quality. Example: HRH lasted on my nails with no chips at all for 1.5 weeks. The chancer glitter formulation chipped off 3 hours after applying it once already dried and with 2 top coats on. Took a bath and they floated around the tub like as if I had rose petals in there. Git progressively worse with chipping as the days went on that by the 3-4 day, the entire polish had chipped or peeled off the entire nail on all nails. I mean literally I didn't have to use a nail polish remover to apply my next nail polish. In some cases entire polish covering whole nail came off all at once. One huge chip the size of my entire nail basically. DO NOT BUY!!! Get the other formulations. Butter London is sending me westend wonderland to try, its the same glitter polish formulation but in gold not red to see if the same thing happens to me with that one too. I'll be testing them out to see if it's all of them or just mine or what, buy very disappointed and they know about it so I'll write another review on westend wonderland once I test it :) Natalie

While I generally LOVE the Butter London nail polishes, I hate the formula for Chaucer. It's hard to get an even coat, and less than 12 hours later, I have a lot of chipping, even with a good base and top coat. This particular glitter formula did not work for me. It's a shame, because the color is stunning.

I think it's a stunning color in the bottle, and it's lovely on nails (although a bit more subdued and average than I'd expected) but it's thick and goopy -- at least, my bottle was. I found it hard to apply smoothly, not just the first time I used it, but the next few times as well. I had this nail polish in Wallis as well, and it too was hard to apply. Also, I could've gotten this exact color (Chancer) in a cheaper, easier to manage formula for far cheaper.

I love a nice red nail polish......and this is a wonderful take on it! I like how the glitter adds some pizzazz and makes the nail color a little more glamorous. I love glitter nail polishes but I find that much of the time they wind up looking cheap once applied---not Butter London glitter polishes! They make glitter polishes look youthful, lovely and even classy.....and classy is a word that I would usually not use to describe glitter polish. I LOVE it!

Great take on the classic red nail, this is my go to nail at the moment as the weather is getting cooler, I'm now a total Butter London freak and plan on buying heaps more! PS the cap on these polishes pops off and there is the normal standard round handle underneath (like Chanel polishes)

I have never had any problems with the packaging of Butter nail polish. Maybe I've just gotten lucky.
I absolutely love Chancer. I think it's probably very similar to China Glaze Ruby Red Slippers, but I'm a sucker for this being free of toxins. The color is a dark candy apple red with a ridiculous amount of glitter. From a distance it just looks like a darker red. But up close it is absolutely gorgeous. I think in most cases glitter can look childish and cheap. But Chancer looks expensive, classic, but also fun. I love wearing it out to dinner because I constantly admire it until shimmering lights. :)
2 coats is opaque for me, and it is necessary to follow up with a top coat (Seche Vite) because in most cases glitters are very matte.
Beautiful color, a fun twist to a classic red, and I will definitely repurchase.

This is an absolutely gorgeous colour, but I found it very difficult to apply. I found I had to really load up the brush or it would not cover the nail in one go. Does dry a bit matte, but I always use a top coat, so who cares? Maybe with a bit of practice I could apply this more easily, but my first attempt required a lot of clean up afterwards! That being said, the depth this colour has with the beautiful micro glitter makes this one of the prettiest polishes I own. Just put it on so I will comment on wear later. EDIT CHIPALICIOUS! Within 24 hours I repaired two chips and later that evening I repaired 2 more. The only thing stopping me from giving this polish 2 lippies is the fact that it's such a gorgeous colour. I think I will be lucky to make it 2 days tho'. Party polish I guess....

This is one of the most outrageous colours I own, and I own a few. The cranberry base of this colour is quite sheer and requires two coats, but applies evenly and effortless. The glitter is delicious, super micro-particles and were not as difficult to remove as some glitter polishes can be. The glittery foil effect on the nail is quite similar to Zoya Charla, except obviously in a cranberry hue. This polish is most definitely on my 'wear often' shelf.
Let me conclude by pointing out that the cap is purely cosmetic, and is designed to be removed before use (as with Chanel polishes). It is not a deterrent to the product's use for me, and makes these polishes the classiest-looking ones on my shelf.

The most notable thing about the Butter London polishes is the terrible packaging (cap and bottle). The wide, flat rectangular bottle has a black plastic cap that is shaped like a mirror image of the bottle, i.e., wide flat and rectangular. The cap is very hard to work with. It does not align properly and it is difficult to hold. It hinders control and leverage and makes application very difficult; it is best to remove the brush from the cap before using (the cap does come off). The brush is too short, as well, and the bottle is easy to tip over. The volume of the bottle is only .3 oz. The current price of $12 makes this polish way too pricey. Thankfully, I was able to try it, under their "Turn In Toxins" campaign, virtually for free.
This is described on their website as a "deep, 'crushed glitter' red. I would describe it as a deep candy apple red with lots of fine, red glitter shimmer. The consistency is very good and this could be opaque with just one heavy coat, but it is much better with two lighter coats. No excessive drying time, either. The finish is a bit matte and it just doesn't look good without plenty of clear top coat over it to bring out its glittery depth and goodness. I only wore this color for two days before having to remove it, so I cannot comment on the wear/durability of it.
I think this would make a very nice pedi color for anytime of the year. I'd also be willing to bet it would be favored by any muscle car lover, as this reminds me of the some of the finest candy apple red metallic flake auto lacquer. *smile*
I would not repurchase because of the outrageous price, high-maintenance finish (i.e., requiring so much top coat to look good) and hokey packaging, but this one is a keeper until it is gone!
