Oh, Butter London...how I adore thee. I am super excited about their new Fall collection, mainly because there is a lot of glitter and sparkle! I have swatches of three beautiful colors today: Shag, Dodgy Barnett, and Lovely Jubbly.
First up is Butter London "Shag". This one is a metallic orange, with a hint of burgandy...so it's the perfect Fall color and totally reminds me of the Autumn leaves! I don't have anything like it in my nail polish collection and I love that it's so unique. I used two coats and it had nice coverage.
Next up is "Dodgy Barnett", which is a silver holographic polish. Oh my goodness, I love holos and this one is a beauty! Indoors, in natural light, this color looks like it just has a plain silver shimmer...but step outside in the sun and it is so colorful and sparkly! I used three coats, but it looked alright at two. I really want to try this over another color!
Last, but most definitely not least, is Butter London "Lovely Jubbly". This is a purple rainbow of glitter, so obviously I am a fan! The main color is magenta and it has small flecks of blue, red and gold glitter. I used three coats of this glittery goodness and a thick clear topcoat.
I thought this color looked rather familiar, so I checked my stash and realized that it looks a lot like NYC New York Color "Big City Dazzle". As you can tell by the last picture, they look almost identical in the bottle and the glitter is definitely the same color. However, "Big City Dazzle" is just meant to be a top coat and I'm guessing it would take around 9 coats to get the same effect as "Lovely Jubbly" (I used 3 coats in the picture). So, I guess it isn't really a dupe (unless you have time to paint on an extra 7-9 coats...I suggest paying the extra money).
The Butter London Autumn/Winter 2012 Collection also includes "Gobsmacked" (dark-gray glitter) and "Trustafarian" (golden-green holo), both of which I also need to add to my collection! I think my favorite is probably "Lovely Jubbly"...this girl loves her purple! Which is your favorite? What's on your nails this week?
