Nail Files: Butter London's Trustafarian Review

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

In this post, I will introduce to you my nail color for January 2013 which was Butter London's Trustafarian. I actually won this and another color from Blushing Noir's giveaway. It arrived last December and opened it as one of the gifts I received for Christmas.

PACKAGING
It has the square type glass which only a few beauty brands use.  I love the fact that it has a secure cap aside from the one which the nail polish brush is usually attached to. It is very tight that I had a hard time to open it. On the other hand, it will avoid messy spills which is a waste for a lovely polish like this. This is funny but I actually had a hard time opening it due to the very invisible tape that my eyes refused to see it. Anyway, you don't have to twist and turn the first cap since there is a sign that says "Lift to open." I also adore its name. I think it is very unique and has a very strong ring to it.

QUALITY
It doesn't chip easily and really lasts long. Fair enough, I had a lazy habit of wearing them for a very long period of time which is bad for my nails and very unlady-like (I will be changing it that I made a vow with myself that I will remove it as soon as it chips). But it did last longer than expected since the color was very light and only applied a very thin coat. I also did not apply a colorless top coat but it still appeared shiny. It somehow contradicts the strong pursuit the name gives. I don't know. That's just me.
 COLOR
The color was sea green with glitters to add sparkle. It was lighter than expected. I actually thought it would be a murky green but lighter with a touch of glitters. I applied two coats already and still, the color was light. I did not want to apply another because if it got too thick, it will be easily smudged.
VERDICT
To end this, I think it will be perfect for those who love lighter shades or neutral ones on your nails (like my mom). Though personally, I prefer striking colors because I believe that it compliments my skin tone by highlighting it. I guess I will be using this again in the future but I will definitely use a darker and similar shade as base coat then applied this on top. I think that will make the color pop even more.

So what do you guys think?
