Better late than never, right? Butler Please was released as part of essie’s winter 2012 Leading Lady collection. When the promo images were released for the Leading Lady collection I wasn’t overly excited about any particular polish. But when I saw the display at Rite Aid Butler Please caught my eye. An electric cobalt blue? Yes please!
Essie describes Butler Please as an “indulgent bright blue.” I don’t know about indulgent but it certainly is bright! So bright, in fact, Butler Please is technically a neon.
I used three coats in my swatches and it does dry to that weird neon semi matte finish. A shiny top coat is definitely required! I used Rush 60 Second High Speed Top Coat. Unfortunately, because Butler Please is a neon, the wear isn’t great.
Essie always impresses me. A cold weather appropriate neon? How awesome is that! I only have one other neon in my collection I consider year around appropriate (Nina Ultra Pro Punki Purple) so Essie has achieved quite a feat with Butler Please.
The color of this polish is so bright that it freaked out my camera a bit. There are more color accurate swatches below the jump. It’s a deeper blue than the pictures from my lightbox indicate.
