One of my favorite pinkish neutral polishes, this Butter London color is one of my favorites. I like the consistency of their polishes and there are several that are staples in my stash of many. I can wear this color at almost anytime and feel like it compliments my hands. Highly recommend.

ASTON is a unique color, it has a slightly brownish toffee tone but also some rose in it... not too rosy, not too brown, somewhere in between, and with small silver glitter... very elegant! I just found it not that easy to apply, it takes 2 coats... otherwise very nice!

Another amazing shade from Butter London. I adore this color and have found it to be my newest "go to" shade. It's sort of a terracotta color with subtle sparkles. Usually I stay away from sparkly shades but I really love this one. The formula is wonderful. Not a bubble or streak in sight. Would most definitely repurchase.

I like how this polish applies. It is nice and smooth and not streaky. I wasn't a fan of the color. It's a medium plummy brown with a suble shimmer. I did notice quite a bit of chipping by the third day of wear. Since I'm new to polish, I don't know if this is normal. For $14, I would think it would wear a little better.

This is the best color for long or short nails - for people who don't like too much glitter or youngster looking colors. I like the consistency, I only need two coats, its a great color! For a polish thats very similar in color and a little cheaper try Ulta's Ginger Peach.

Aston is a lovely deep ashy-taupe the same depth of shade as wet sand, if you can picture that... Has a subtle, colorless near-pearlescence that is nearly invisible on the nails, but looks lovely in the bottle, satiny and soft, though it isn't easily disceenible. You have to look closely. Great pigment; opaque with one coat but streaky but perfect with two coats. Dries completely and quickly. Wears well but chipped without a base/topcoat within 48 hours. The undertone wasn't terribly flattering to my rather cool skintone, but it wasn't too warm exactly -- more likely just a tad too deeply khaki. It sort of clashed with my skintone but I don't hold the product responsible for incompatibility of color. It's a gorgeous top-quality polish. I will be collecting BL colors for a long time! Will probably not repurchase this same shade, but will definitely not hesitate to try other colors!

Totally don't get the rating on this polish. Yes, it's not exactly a unique shade and yes it's pricey. But it's a fabulous everyday color for a variety on skintones. The shimmer keeps it from being totally boring. This is my go-to shade for any occasion. It's neutral but still has shimmer for interest. The formula is fantastic and dries quickly. Definitely repurchase if I ever use it up!

Sadly, I am not sold on this color. I wanted to love it, but have to agree with the reviewer below that it is really just kind of a "meh," boring shade. I was thinking it would be sheerer and more rosy than it is. Instead, it is basically a forgettable muddy brown with shimmer.

This is a dusty pink-tan-toffee colour - a great everyday polish. Considering that I find it difficult to find any neutral colour polish, this is a great discovery for me. Lasted for 3 weeks (seriously!), on my toes no less. Great for summer. Love the Butter London range.

I love the Butter London polishes, but am not sold on this color. It's kind of a medium toned, reddish/pinkish coppery color, with cool silver shimmer. It's okay, there's nothing wrong with it, but it's not as pretty or as unique as some of their polishes, imo. It kind of strikes me as an "everyday" type of polish color that my mother or grandmother might wear. I am a fan of Butter on the whole, though so will continue to repurchase- just not this one :)

Aston is described as toffee colored. I see more of a neutral rose with hints of brown, very similar to Chanel Rose Confidentiel--only with shimmer--and a couple shades less deep than Revlon Teak Rose, but definitely in that color family. I always prep my nails well before polishing (no oily residue), and my manicure lasted 5 full days before it started to chip. Unlike other nail polish brands, I was able to dab the nail tips with new polish and the color blended so smoothly I could not tell a chip had been there. If I polish my nails on Sunday evening, I can get through a full work week with gorgeous nails.
butter LONDON polish dries quickly (especially with the help of OPI Dry), and has very little smell, so you could even sneak on a quick coat while at the office. It is also fairly easy to remove. I have a lot of pink in my hands, and the Aston color does not give me the dreaded lobster claws. It's a great color for every-day wear, totally appropriate for any office setting. Given the absence of the big 3 nasties in other brands, I will definitely purchase again and have other butter LONDON colors that I will review separately.
