Hey There Everyone,
When Ulta had that wonderful BOGO sale on Butter London polishes, I took that opportunity to get my hands on two colors that I’d admired but still wasn’t going to spend $14 a pop on. The two colors I decided on were Dodgy Barnett and Trustafarian. I was so hyped when I got these home- look how pretty they are in their lovely rectangular bottles:
My excitement was quite tempered though as soon as I opened my first bottle- Dodgy Barnett. The brush’s quality was less than satisfactory. It’s the tiniest brush I’ve ever seen, and it’s on one of the most expensive polishes I own… how does that work?! I was so disappointed that I made this lovely meme:
Dodgy Barnett means a bad hairdo. Think mullet, jerry curl, followers of Warren Jeffs, Donald Trump.
Dodgy Barnett is a silver linear holographic polish. Holographic for those of you who don’t know means it shines a rainbow of colors in the right lighting- direct sunlight, some artificial lighting.
Non-problematic. A little thin, but builds and isn’t TOO bad at flooding your cuticles. The brush SUCKS, but you’ll get used to it.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Yes, PLEASE!! This is so pretty, but I still don’t know I’d buy it for $14. If I was going to buy a polish at that price point, I think the Layla holos are a little more vigorous with their holographic goodness.
Trustafarian means a rich kid who has adopted the hippie lifestyle because their parents have money and therefore they can. This reminds me of something I saw on Urban Dictionary. I looked up Taylor Gang one day (it’s Wiz Khalifa’s thing cuz he always wears Chuck Taylor Converse shoes…) and the definition was “Something rich white kids say to prove how hood they are.” Haha, I laughed so hard! And the funniest thing is that I KNEW people who were saying “Taylor Gang” or “TGOD” (Taylor Gang or die) and guess who they were? Rich (mainly-) white kids whose parents have enough money that life is mostly fun times and parties on yachts. Every time I hear/see a person saying “Taylor Gang” that’s all I can think of!! You’re so gangsta in your parents’ lake house!
Trustafarian is a linear holographic light green polish. I think the holographic effect is a little more stark here, but it could also have just been the weather on the day I tried Dodgy Barnett. I love this color, I think it’s just so pretty!!
Trustafarian = Dodgy Barnett.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
Another Yes, Please! but with the same caveat as Dodgy Barnett. I’d buy Trustafarian all day at 7-9 dollars, but at 14 I’m going to pick up a green Layla Holographic Effects polish. Sorry Butter London, I like your cute British slang names but I want bang for my buck, sound for my pound? Whatever, you get my point.
