I have lots of polishes that I haven't even touched. This is one of them from Butter London.

This is Butter London in Silly Billy. Since I did a thorough review of Butter London in Muggins, I will base this on that.
Just like all Butter London polishes, it comes with an extra top.
Here's a closer look at the color. I cannot find the description from the website. I'm guessing it's discontinued, but I do have to say it's brighter on my nails than the polish.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, the length is the same but the width is a lot thinner. I would say the brush is on the thin side.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in Original, Seche Crystal Clear Base Coat, 2 coats of Butter London in Silly Billy, and then topped it off with CND Vinylux Weekly Top Coat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, the brush is on the thin side. I need to coat more than I like but it's all by preference. I actually didn't have an issue painting around my cuticles like I normally do with thin brushes. Secondly, the consistency is on the medium. I like that it didn't get thick while painting. I could take my time and be cautious as possible. With that said, it went on smoothly and there was no streaking and bubbles. Third, it's a gorgeous orange color. I say it's more orange than coral, and it's perfect for the summer season. Lastly, it lasted five days before I noticed slight chipping at the sides of the tips. I did notice shrinkage but it wasn't all the nails. I only noticed on one nail on the fourth day.

Would repurchase: Yes.
