Review: butter LONDON Dosh & Swinger

Hello lovelies!
Press Sample
I hope you enjoyed my review of butter LONDON Fishwife yesterday! Today I am continuing on with my butter LONDON review week and actually have a 2 for 1 post for you! This time I am featuring Dosh (which I purchased myself) and Swinger!

I used Dosh as a base for Swinger thinking that it would need undies. I was pleasantly surprised to find that Swinger was actually much more opaque than I expected but am going to show them both to you anyways. :) Dosh is described as:

A molten metallic apple-green nail lacquer shot through with gold. DEEEELICIOUS!

The shimmer in Dosh is stunning! I love greens and this shade is no exception! Check it out!








I used 2 coats of butter LONDON Dosh on all fingers with an accent of Swinger on my ring finger, also 2 coats. I used Julep Nail Therapy for my base coat but skipped the top coat since I still had more layering to do. As you can see, Swinger was fully opaque in just 2 coats! Dosh applied perfectly and barely even needed a second coat!

Now to give Swinger it's full glory! Swinger is described as:

A vibrant, grass green glitter nail lacquer.

I also love that many of the lacquers include an explanation of what the name means! If you aren't already familiar with what a Swinger is, butter LONDON takes the question out of it! ;)

A person who is intimate with two or more people simultaneously, hence the term “the swinging 60’s”.

Now for the photos!










My pointer and pinkie fingers are just 1 coat of Swinger over Dosh. My middle finger is 2 coats over Dosh and index finger is 2 coats of Swinger by it's self. Followed by HK Girl topcoat on all fingers. As with all glitters clean up wasn't as easy and I did a quick job so I missed some glitter but that flaked off within a couple hours.

If you don't mind doing 2 coats of nail polish then you can easily get away with not using undies. If you want to conserve the polish then using 1 coat with undies would be fine too. The finish was smooth either way (thanks to the topcoat) and honestly I could hardly tell a difference with Dosh as the undies. I'm sure Swinger would look nice over a contrasting color too such as black and would also be great for a glitter gradient!

I love both of these greens and can definitely see myself wearing them year round! If you would like Dosh or Swinger for yourself you can buy them here:

  3. You are obviously reading this on account that you are at the very least curious about the swingers lifestyle and have more than likely read various swinger stories expounding on the essentials of swinging.Tampa escorts
