To be honest, I don't remember when I bought this polish from Butter London. I do remember getting it from Nordstrom Rack.

This is Butter London in Trustafarian. It's not listed on their website. I'm not 100% sure but I believe it's not sold anymore. Since I did a thorough review of Butter London in Muggins, I will base this on that.
Just like all Butter London, it comes with an extra top.
Here's a closer look at the color.
Here's a closer look at the brush. Compared to my favorite OPI brush, it's thinner. I would say the width of the brush on the thin side, The length, on the other hand, is the same.
I applied OPI Nail Envy in OriginalButter London Nail Foundation Priming Basecoat, 2 coats of Butter London in Trustafarian, and then topped all the nails with Butter London Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat.

Now for my overall opinion... First of all, I'm not a big fan of thin brushes but this one is alright. It isn't one of those brushes you do three strokes and then move onto the next nail. You do more than three strokes but it's easy to paint around the cuticles and sides. Secondly, I like the packaging. It's square and unique. Most polishes that I know are round. With that said, it's well-made and sturdy. It's made out of thick glass. The top is also sturdy. You can feel a tight seal when you open and close. The thing I don't understand is the extra top. I feel like it's a waste of space but that's just my opinion. I cannot see it open or break unless you are rough with the packaging. For this reason, it's travel-friendly. It's a decent size which makes it easy to hold with one hand. You can throw it in your purse, bag, and even your pocket. Third, the consistency is in-between thin to medium. It's a good consistency and extremely easy to work with. It's not too thin that it runs everywhere. It's also not too thick that it gets clumpy while painting. You can take your time with painting your nails. Since it's in-between thin to medium, it spread easily on the nails to coat it smoothly. With that said, there are no streaking and bubbles. Fourth, the color is pretty and light. It's a great spring and summer color. It's also great for business casual work environment. If you're not into holographic polishes, this isn't for you. I think it's a perfect amount of sparkles. Pigmentation-wise it's not up there. It's light but two coats is good enough to show on my skin. It'll definitely show better on darker skin. Lastly, I saw shrinkage on the fourth day. Since the color is so light and blends in with my natural skin tone, it's hard to see the shrinkage. Since I examine my nails for review purposes, I check it closely. I do see slight chipping on the sides of the tips on the fourth day as well. Again, it's hard to see. With that said, it's easy to remove. It's not glittery. It's just sparkly. I'm glad I bought this polish. It's a gorgeous holographic polish.

Would repurchase: Yes.
