butter LONDON Billy No Mates - Swatches and Review

How about more butter LONDON this morning? I have Billy No Mates to show you today!

Billy No Mates is a pale blue-based grey creme. In some lights it appears just a straight grey and in others you can see the blue undertones. According to butter LONDON, "Billy No Mates" is Brit slang for someone who is a loser and has no friends. That's actually a great name for this one because at first glance it doesn't seem very interesting but I loved it on the nail. I've used two coats and no top coat for the photos and no issues to report at all with formula or application. This should be a staple in your stash.

What do you think of this one?

butter LONDON polishes are available at and selected retail stores like ULTA (and most recently, Dillard's Department Stores) and they retail for $15.00 for .4 ounces. To stay up-to-date on special deals and offers, you can "like" them on Facebook here. Queen Vic is just one of the over 100 colors they offer, in addition to various indulgences for your hands and feet...and even your lips. The nail lacquers are 3-free and butter LONDON is a Cruelty-Free company. That's a major plus for me.

  1. I love how subtle and pretty this is. Sometimes polishes that seem boring at first glance turn out to be cherished favorites!!

  2. I purchased this a few months ago when butter had a number of their lacquers on a "leaving soon!" list. Butters for 1/3 off? Oh yes and thank you! I LOVE this color. As Sheila said it's not much in the bottle, but a great color on the nails. I initially thought it would be a dupe for essie's Maximillian Strasse-her, but it's not. If I can figure out how to post photos I'll show my comparison shots. Bought it because I'm, frugal, but it has become a staple in my collection.
