BB Couture for Nails Review & Giveaway!

A little while back I was sent 2 BB Couture polishes to review from the wonderful Kim @ Overall Beauty. She sent me Lovebug (a sheer jelly pink with silver glitter) and Fairytale (a deep frosty blue).



Junebug was really sheer (this is 4 coats) but it would be great layered over a nice pink!

Fairytale is a fantastic blue that goes on really opaque. (This is 2 coats!)


BB Couture claims that this is a 4 in 1 formula:
'Our exclusive all-inclusive long wearing 4 in 1 formula was 10 years in the making. We started with a fast drying high gloss nail color, enriched it with natural pearl and extra pigment for more vibrant colors. Then we added basecoat, strengtheners and topcoat.' ~BB Couture site

So of course I had to test the wear. I applied 2 coats without a basecoat or topcoat and wore this polish for 5 days! Here is the fifth day:



Not too bad for 5 days!


I had actually worn it for 6 days because I was a bit lazy and there was a chip on my pinky. But 5 days no b/c or t/c is incredible! And it DID NOT stain my nails!

OK, ONTO THE GIVEAWAY!!!

Kim has generously offered to send one of my readers their very own Fairytale (since it is such a great color and a staple for any polish lover's collection) AND one color of your choice from the BB Couture collection @ Overall Beauty.

To participate in this giveaway, you must be a reader through Google Friend Connect, if you aren't click 'Follow' in the right column. Fill in the box below with the name that you follow me with (I will be checking), your e-mail, and the color that you would choose from Overall Beauty. Click HERE to pick out ONE polish.

OPEN TO ALL!!


Good Luck!!


*I was sent these polishes in exchange for an honest review.

Why did I not get Lovebug? It looks a bit like China Glaze Encouragement. Do you know if it is?

Fairytale is very pretty! I love dark blues. It would be hard to choose just one, but I would choose Horned Devil. My GFC name is Millie and I would love to enter.

jaljen~ I don't have Encouragement so I can't tell you for sure, but it looks like Encouragement is more of a light pink than a sheer like this one.
amusedPolish~ It is open internationally! I just edited the post, I had to check with Kim before I posted it :)
milan and vanaily ~ Very squishy!
rotarygirl~ These were the first ones I tried and I am in love! I really love the second men's collection with all the duochromes!
