First 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
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.
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.
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.
