Nailed: Butter London Tart with a Heart

I’ve been wanting to try Butter London nail polishes for a long time now, so was over the moon when my friend Ingrid gave me three lovely shades as a belated Christmas gift!

The shade I was most excited to try was ‘Tart with a Heart’. Aside from having a super adorable name, this sheer nude glitter mix is really unusual and (as always with my favourite polishes) has a hint of holographic!

The consistency is a little ‘paste-y’ (if that even makes sense?!) Butter’s polishes are ‘3 Free’ containing no formaldehyde, toluene and DPB so that might be why, but anything missing potentially harmful chemicals is a bonus in my book!

The colour payoff is very sheer, making it the perfect polish for layering on top of your favourite nude, or metallic shade.

I paired it with Designer… de Better from the new OPI Muppets collection: a beautiful rose gold metallic that matches the tones perfectly. I also think this shade would look great over a more basic nail colour so that the pretty glitter stands out a little more. I think Tart with a Heart is a great way to wear glitter without it being OTT and I know I’ll get a lot of use out of this polish.

Butter London polishes are available from Ulta in the US, and online in the UK at for $14 and £12 respectively.
