Essie Butler Please




Essie nail polish in Butler Please: £7.99

Essie's Butler Please had been teasing me whenever I had a gander at the array of polishes in my local Boots. Bright, electric blues generally aren't my thing, or at least I thought they weren't - la couleur bleue seems to be popping up left right and centre in my life at the moment and I could resist no longer. This polish looked quite purple from the in-store advertising which put me off, so in true beauty blogger fashion I had a Google, and on my next visit it was sold in a flash.

Butler Please is touted as 'an indulgent bright blue' and is actually very flattering when worn, despite my initial concerns. Personally it definitely looks better with a tan, but that could just be my almost sick-looking pale olive skin speaking. As it's so bright it's perfect to wear with other bright colours, or to bring a neutral or on-trend monochrome outfit to life.

It's quickly become one of my go-to shades at the moment because of its simplicity and boldness in equal measures - sadly though, it doesn't quite seem to stand the test of time on my talons. I experienced a couple of chips on my thumbs and index fingers (which would make sense as they're the most used digits) even with an expensive top coat and good nail care. I found the formula to be a bit thicker than other polishes in the range too, but I might just have a dud bottle.

Have you tried Butler Please? Do you have a particular favourite nail colour at the moment?

  1. I love Essie nail polish! I'm so tempted to buy this... At first I didn't like blue nail polish but now I'm kind of starting to like it.

    Great post!

  10. I was in Boots a few days ago and mine has a brand new Essie stand! I almost fainted! (A bit extreme... I didn't really almost faint...) But I was so excited. The pastels are so gorgeous that I didn't even think to look at the electric colours but after seeing this one swatched I may just have to go back and take a closer look! Thank you for opening my fickle, fickle eyes :D
