Butter London “Dodgy Barnett”

Today I’ve tried another polish from Butter London’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection.

This is “Dodgy Barnett”

According to Butter London this is “a highly holographic lacquer in a classic shade that blurs the line between grey and silver.”

As you can see, this polish has lots of depth and interest. It’s certainly much nicer on the nail than in the bottle.  I found myself just staring at it for ages!  Here I’ve used three thin coats of Dodgy Barnett along with Essie First Base and Essie Good To Go base and top coats.

I really like this polish, it’s a very versatile colour that wouldn’t be out of place anywhere.  Having said that “Lovely Jubbly” is still my favourite from this Butter London collection 😀


Butter London “Gobsmacked”

Gobsmacked is from the Butter London Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection.

This is a heavily pigmented charcoal grey, glitter nail lacquer with a slightly textured finish.  I love the silver micro particles in this polish, its a very sophisticated glitter.

Gobsmacked applies really evenly by itself which is unusual for a glitter polish. Here I have used two coats of it with Essie First Base and Essie Good To Go base and top coats.

The ease of application and durability of this polish along with the gorgeous grey colour make it one of my favourites from the latest collection from Butter London 😀

Butter London “Lovely Jubbly”

Are you ready for one of the most spectacular nail polishes to be released this season?

Here is “Lovely Jubbly” from Butter London’s Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection.

This is a vibrant magenta nail polish flecked with red, blue and gold micro-particles.

“Lovely Jubbly” is very similar in texture to the Nails Inc 3D polishes (which I happen to love) but the particles are much smaller, this means that the Butter London polish is slightly smoother.  It applies beautifully.  This is two coats along with Essie First Base and Essie Good To Go base and top coats.

Here’s a close up

As with all full glitter polishes, this will cover a multitude of sins such as ridged or flaky nails and so on.  It dries very quickly and is extremely hard wearing.  The downside to this being that it is a little bit more difficult to remove.   To remove this or any other glitter polish – place a cotton ball soaked in polish remover onto your nail and wrap it in kitchen foil for about 10 minutes – the polish will then come off very easily.

I am seriously impressed with this polish from Butter London 😀

Butter London “Trustafarian”

I’m so excited to present my first polish from Butter London.  This is “Trustafarian” –

This is from the Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection.  I have to admit this colour looked very strange on me after one coat and I almost reached for the polish remover!  Luckily it improved greatly after I applied the second coat.  In fact, I really like this colour now.  I definitely don’t have anything like it in my stash.  It’s very subtle and yet different.

I’ve used Nails Inc Kensington Caviar base and top coats with “Trustafarian” as I don’t have any Butter London ones at the moment.   Maybe I should think about buying some as I do have another three polishes from their Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection waiting to be tried/reviewed 😀
