Butter London Trout Pout Swatches & ReviewFirst of all, would you look at how big that cap is? It practically dominates the majority of the photo!

This is the first Butter London polish that I’ve ever worn, so it’s quite dear to my heart.

It’s called Butter London Trout Pout, which hails from the Spring Summer 2012 Collection.

I think the name is hilarious and cheeky – very fitting for an eye-catching coral pink!

So what did I think of the Butter London nail polish formula? There’s only one way to find out!

Butter London Trout Pout Review

Colour

If you’re a fan of colours like China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy, I have a good feeling that you’ll also really love Trout Pout by Butter London. No, they’re not dupes of each other, and you’d be justified in owning both, but they do share the same chipper spirit.

Coral pinks like this are really fun to wear because they’re bright, make you look slightly more tan than you actually are, and they always look fresh and playful.

While Flip Flop Fantasy is an obvious neon, Trout Pout isn’t. Yes, it’s bright, but it carefully walks on the tightrope between bright and neon. If you’re not willing to go the full-on neon route, take a walk on the mild side with Trout Pout.

You can wear any colour your heart desires any time of year, but I can see people reaching for this shade more in the summer.

I really dig corals, and while I love Trout Pout, I can’t say that it’s a unique colour. If you don’t have a coral in your collection, this is a good one to have. But if you have several corals already, you can pass on this.

Finish

I love how Trout Pout by Butter London is a simple creme. It doesn’t need any shimmer, glitter, or special effects to stand out because the colour itself already screams for attention. :)

Application & Formula

I had a great experience with my first Butter London nail polish because Trout Pout applied perfectly. It requires 2 coats to cover the nail, and each coat goes on effortlessly. The first coat was streaky, but the second coat evened everything out nicely.

Price

One of the main reasons why I only have 3 bottles of Butter London nail polish in my collection so far is the price. I think that $17 CAD is quite a lot to drop on a polish, but if you’re really in love with a colour and expect to wear it often, it may be worth the splurge.

Pros

  • Requires just 2 coats
Cons

  • Pricey
  • Colour isn’t very unique

Final Verdict: 9.5/10

Butter London Trout Pout makes me want to smile, not pout! ;) It’s a colour that reminds me of happy summer memories, warm weather, and those carefree days.

      Hey Maribeth!

      If you have a similar colour, you don’t necessarily need it, but the formula on this one is good (as long as you use 2 coats or more). Plus I just love how classy the bottle looks. :) And the name ‘Trout Pout’…hehe! Cracks me up!

      Hey MariJo!

      I love these kind of colours on you, too.

      Yes, it’s very pricey, indeed! But if you splurge, it should be on a colour you absolutely love/lust and plan to wear often! ;)

    Ugh.. this polish is SO GORGEOUS. I can’t even.. I’ll have to check out a dupes list, because I typically can’t afford $14 on nail polish unless it’s something REALLY special.

      Hey CupK8!

      I understand – the price is quite high, and this item is definitely a ‘splurge item’.

      If I come across something similar, I’ll let you know. (Actually, one of my friends got me a gorgeous polish that’s a bit similar, but it’s a Polish brand – Colour Alike is the brand. The colour is #4 Coral Red. In the bottle, it looks a little similar, but I haven’t worn it yet.)

        I actually did a bit of a search on The Google, and a lot of bloggers are saying they can’t find anything in their stash that matches. Of course, there are some drugstore dupes, but sadly ones that are on my no-buy since I went cruelty-free.

          Wow, I’m pretty surprised that there doesn’t seem to be a dupe of this. It didn’t strike me as a very unusual colour, but I guess it has that je ne sais quoi…

    How pretty is this pink on you, Mary?? I’d never be able to pull this one off; too much yellow for me to do justice. But on you it looks superb! :D I actually got Knackered but now that I have it, I probably should’ve gotten Disco Biscuit or Slapper instead. I was lured in by the promise of duochrome and holo glitter. I have to agree that the price is pretty high for less than 15mL of polish (11.4mL if I remember correctly..?) but I feel it’s warranted only with a special sort of finish/color. Like Wallis or No More Waitey Katie. Those two are definitely worth it! I’m still on the fence with Knackered. I wore it alone and it wasn’t as awesome as I thought it would be. I’ll try layering it over a darker shade; that might make the duochrome show more.

      Hey Carmela!

      Are you sure you can’t pull this one off? I can picture it on you! Your nails are always so pretty. You can pull off so many different shades.

      I’m looking forward to seeing Knackered on you. I almost went for that one, but I wasn’t sure if it would fall into the problem I had with OPI Not Like The Movies or not. Plus I’m really digging coral lately. :)

      Hey Maria Saldana!

      It would be nice if Butter London sold mini polishes, right? Then we could test-drive colours for a fraction of the price. Actually, maybe they have it. I’ve never seen them, though.

      Mmm…butter lobster! Makes me hungry! *Drools*

    Love it! Its super pretty!

    Slightly off topic, but have you gotten your hands on any of the Colours from the Capitol collection yet? I got a few of them (still trying to track down a couple, lol) and they’re gorgeous! I bet you’d love Agro :)

      Hey Katrina!

      Nope, I haven’t purchased any Colours from the Capitol Collection yet. Been saving my money quite a bit ever since I heard about the MAC By Request Collection. (I missed out on the MAC Candy Yum-Yum Lipstick, the crazy neon pink, so I really want to get it if I’m given a second chance.)

      But I’ve looked at other bloggers’ gorgeous swatches. YES, Agro is totally up my alley! :D You know me very well…hehehehe! ;)

    I love, love, love butterLONDON! Especially their base and top coats. the base coat is amazing (I won’t us anything else now!), and the top coat seriously gives Seche a run for its money. Plus, the bottles are quite big so you get a good amount of product.

      Oh, I’ve never tried their treatments. Good to know that they’re also top-notch! :D And it’s nice for people to know that it’s up there with Seche in case they’re looking for a 3-Free formula that’s also fast-drying. :)

    My very first butter London was ‘come to bed red’ and I obsoultely loved it! It goes on like butter, just like the brand name. And since then I been keeping an eye on this brand. And trout pout is totally on my list of to gets for this spring. Love that girly color.

      Hey Michelle!

      That’s a hilarious name for a polish! Very fitting, too, since red is the colour of love and seduction.

    The name is priceless; but I’m with everyone – it’s hard to splurge on these prices for all colors. But…this one does look so very pretty on you. Corals are in my top 3 go-to-first-colors and you have sufficiently peaked my interest! :) Temptation, temptation, temptation…

      Hey Kim!

      Thank you! :) Maybe more than a year ago, I never thought I could sport coral polish. But then I tried it, and fell in love! Funny how people can do a complete 180 after they try something for the first time. :) That’s why I’m always pushing people to try new things (legal and good things, of course!). ;)
