More from BB Couture for Nails

Today I have more from BB Couture for Nails to share with you. I have one brand new shade, one that is new to me, two that you've seen here before but I tried to get better pictures of and a few old favorites.

First, the brand new shade, BB Couture for Nails Midnight Desire:

Super dark blue/purple shimmer. This is one of those shades that looks nearly black indoors but then outdoors it is super gorgeous. At first I thought this might be dupeish to Chanel Vendetta but it is not. This is more noticeably blue than Vendetta, which is way more purple. I would have done a comparison swatch if I thought it was warranted, but it isn't. I am wearing Midnight Desire right now and I absolutely love it! I never get tired of shades like this. Midnight desire is extremely opaque with one coat but I used two for good measure.

Next, the shade that is new to me, BB Couture for Nails Dragon's Breath:

Purple/plum jelly with glitter. LOVE this color! This swatch is three coats. I love jelly based glitters like this because they have amazing depth. I love how the glitter looks almost like it is trapped deep under the layers of polish, almost like it is suspended in jello or something. Am I making sense at all?

Finally, the shades you have seen here before but that I tried to get better pictures of.

BB Couture for Nails Sea of Cortez:

I tried to get better pictures of these jelly based stunners. Hopefully it worked! For you girls out there that appreciate the funkier colors, both of these are *must* haves. I think these blue an green shades are absolutely perfect. Just stunning.

Since we are on the subject of BB Couture for Nails, I thought I'd also show you a few of my old favorites.

  1. ZOMG that midnight desire is like orgasm good and beautiful! I totallt wish I had money right now to buy that I have never wanted a nail polish soo much!

  2. I have been in love with Poison Ivy ever since I saw your initial swatch. It looks like the perfect green! And Nail Sea of Cortez....OMG! Katee, your nails look expectionally stunning in these pictures!

  3. I love Dragon's Breath! What a gorgeous color!

  4. WOW! I love them all on you! Yum!

  5. I've been trying to use your nail tips to get my nails perfect. I can't get the bottom edge of my nail (where nail bed and cuticle meet) perfect. Do you have more success with a nail pen or the brush/acetone to get that perfectly round clean edge?

    Or is the trick in applying it almost perfect to begin with?

    turning into a perfectionist,

  6. @brooklynne - isn't it fabulous? I know what you mean! What does the Z in ZOMG stand for?

    @B - Thanks!! Did you get poison ivy yet?

    @Sasha - I know you would love Dragon's Breath.

    @Sanna - thanks!

    @Suz - Hi!! I try to apply them "perfect" in the first place but I fix my goofs with a brush and acetone. Specifically a chisel tip brush from an art store will work well.

  7. Katee the Z is added due to all the geeks who used to make mistakes and hit the z key instead of the shift key or both it has kinda been picked up into general online speak like lolcat
