Brand: Trust Fund Beauty
Over the last couple of months, I hauled quite a bit from Trust Fund Beauty using some 35% off and 40% off codes from Ipsy. Of course, for the holidays, Trust Fund Beauty is now running a 50% off code (HOLIDAY50, no affiliation), so I’m incredibly tempted to place one more order! Arrrgh.
Anyway, my polish of the day is one of the polishes I got in one of the mini sets, Rich & Reckless.
Champagne Problems is described by TFB as a “metallic gold foil”. There are many variations on gold in nail polish world, and this particular one is a very wearable, subdued antique gold with a strong pewter tone. It’s not your typical brassy, shiny, yellow or orange gold.
I have trouble finding a gold shade that doesn’t clash terribly with my skintone (the long discontinued OPI Gala Gold was my previous favorite), so I’m really pleased to have found Champagne Problems!
As with the previous two TFB polishes I’ve swatched, this polish applies very smoothly, and the frosty finish is not overly streaky. Two coats give perfect, even and opaque coverage.
I’d highly recommend taking advantage of the 50% off code posted above! These are swell polishes. I wouldn’t necessarily recommend them at full price, but at half price, it’s easy. The company also sells liquid lipsticks along with nail polish.
Trust Fund Beauty Nail Polish is US$15/CA$24 and 0.57 fl oz / 17 mL. The minis are 3 mL and usually come in sets of 6 for US$28. The formula is advertised as being 10-Free: “formaldehyde, toluene, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens, fragrances, animal ingredients, benzophenone-1, GMOs (really?), phthalates, nickel, and lead“. The company is cruelty-free and vegan. Their products are made in the USA and the EU (my bottle says USA).
Trust Fund Beauty was founded in 2014 by Samara Granofsky, in honor of her late mother. The company is based in Montréal, QC, Canada.
