Haven’t swatched a Butter London polish in a while, and what better way to lead into a half-price sale at Ulta on Butter London lacquers this Saturday, September 13th, than to show you a fun one.
It’s called Dodgy Barnett, which is Brit slang for “bad haircut.” I don’t know why. Dodgy Barnett is a glossy silver holographic that came out as part of BL’s Fall 2012 Collection. It’s rather sheer and works well as a top coat, giving a cool holo sheen to the underlying color, or can be worn on its own. Here I have one coat of it on my little finger on the right, four coats on my ring finger, and one coat of it over three coats of the dark shimmery blue Big Smoke, also from Butter London.
First under indirect outdoor light and then with the flash:
The Silver Nail loves this silver polish!
About the sale at Ulta — as far as I know it’s good both in-store and online, and there are probably limits as to the number of polishes you can buy. Be advised that if you want to take advantage of the sale in person at a store, be there when the door opens. This is a very popular sale. If it’s good online I plan to have items in my cart and ready to go. Did I mention that I don’t have a local Ulta since I moved? Good news, though, because one is opening here soon, so I can be even more of a polish and makeup pig. Oink oink.
There are some BL colors I’d love to pick up. One from the Fall 2012 set along with Dodgy Barnett was the sage green holo Trustafarian. Its photo on the BL site doesn’t do it justice; instead look at these swatches from The PolishAholic. I may want to dabble in some of the new Brick Lane shades too.
Need suggestions? You can search The Silver Nail by using the search box on the top right hand side of the page, and I’d recommend using “Butter London” in quotation marks as the search phrase or search for the name of the particular color you have in mind, like Scuppered, one of my all-time favorite colors for fall. Don’t forget other warm colors like Shag and The Old Bill, too.
