Butter London HRH and Prince's Plums

purchased by me

I got both of these polishes at Butter London's year-end clearance sale, but I was pretty disappointed when I swatched them, because they're identical.  Absolute dupes, right down to the base color.  Both are a deep, red-toned purple shimmer, and both behaved perfectly during polishing--thin but pigmented, opaque in two coats, self-leveling.  If I hadn't realized what was going on and left the bottle cap off when I photographed HRH, I'd never have been able to sort out the pics!  All swatches are two coats and no top coat.

If you're interested in buying one of these polishes, or both if you're a masochist ;), you can get them at Ulta or direct from Butter London.


  1. These were both on my wishlist, so your swatches just enabled me to cross one off the list. Sorry you ended up with two identical colors.
