BB Couture for Nails: Review and Swatches
Today I'm bringing you a truly fabulous nail polish brand called BB Couture for Nails. If you've been reading the nail blogs, then your somewhat familiar with this one-of-a kind polish that's just phenomenal. The color selection is beyond amazing and my swatches don't do any justice...really!
Each formula contains no hazardous chemicals and is Big 3 free. And the best news yet, you get everything in this little package. Base, Top coat, Nail Color, and Strengther - all in one. What a brilliant idea? Just brilliant. Why didn't anyone think of this sooner?!
The Wear. Since you get everything in this little bottle, you really don't need a base or top coat. But, I have a feeling most of my readers will have trouble skipping this step, which is OK! I still love ya! Plus, you can never be too safe. My average wear was three days with no chipping, which is pretty remarkable with no base or top.
I know, enough of the review, let's get down to the nitty gritty.
Opposites Attract, a medium gray with silver glitter and some black. The black was very subtle, but you can look at the bottle pic and see the darker black glitter.
Blind Love gives Chanel's Kaleidoscope a run for it's money. Described as a pewter silver foiltastic color that's pretty much an exact dupe to Chanel's.
Balboa Beach Bunny, a deep purple with multi colored glitter. All the jellies are amazing! I'm totally crushing on them.
Sea of Cortez, fabulous light blue jelly with glitter.
Moon over Manhattan is one of the best blues I've ever laid eyes on. Described as a mid tone blue with teal undertones and fine glitter.
Here's a comparison swatch of Moon over Manhattan and Sea of Cortez.
Frosty Meadow, gorgeous light green jelly with glitter.
Zuma Wave Rider didn't quite capture as well as I'd liked. It's a mix between a lavender purple and baby blue pastel. The pastels applied a little streaky, but nothing three coats can't fix.
Laguna Lagoon, a pastel mint green creme.
Laguna Lagoon is similar to OPI's Hey get in Lime, but just a tad more lighter and pastel.
Poison Ivy, a medium green creme. One of the best greens on the market.
Iced Olive is insanely gorgeous! Described as a olive green with gold shimmer.
Where do I buy BB Couture? You can purchase BB Couture directly through BB's site or Overall Beauty. I highly recommend Kim at Overall Beauty. Her customer service exceeds excellence and she ships internationally at a pretty reasonable rate. The retail price is around $8.00 - $9.95/ea.
Have a wonderful Wednesday! Enjoy peeps!

Hi Steph! I've been talking my head off about these today. Poison Ivy is one of my top 3 favorite polishes. They are all amazing colors. They also make the best glitters! I heard a rumor that Overallbeauty will soon be getting the new collection from BB Couture. One of the new shades is named Throb. I can't wait to see what that will look like!
