Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “highly holographic lacquer in a classic shade that blurs the line between grey and silver.” It looks like a soft, paled silver-gray shimmer suspended in a clear base, but it definitely has holographic shimmer as soon as the light catches it. The particles aren’t chunky or gritty, like glitter, but they’re a bit larger than shimmer. Milani HD is comparable–the particles are just larger and it has a more silver coloring.

I applied two coats, and it was noticeably sheer throughout. You could definitely get more opacity by layering on a third coat, or forego wearing it alone and use it layered over your favorite polish. The consistency, color payoff, and look were really comparable with Trustafarian. Dodgy Barnett is thin enough to be able to use three coats fairly comfortably; it won’t feel overly thick or take eons to dry. Butter London’s formula wears well on me, lasting a week or longer, with very minor tip wear and no chipping, whether used with a base/top coat or just the polish.
