BB Couture has a new collection out called Eye Candy and as per the norm, there is a “For Men” side and the regular side. Today I’m covering For Men.
I’m always excited to see new stuff from one of my very favorite nail polish brands and this is a really cool collection – with some unusual colors.
The formula was really great with all six of these. All but one were two coats.
Dirty Blond is a warm putty/beige creme. It’s sort of camel colored but looked more like an orange-based putty color to me. This was not one I expected to even sort of like judging from the bottle alone, but as soon as I had it on I totally loved it. It’s really unusual and a very oddball color. Kind of a nude but not really. Fabulous! This was two coats.
Rustic Romance is a warm burnt light orange with tiny specks of shimmer. This was another super strange looking one that I FULLY expected to hate but I LOVE. Somehow this orange totally works with my skin and doesn’t make me look sickly. It completely reminds me of the 1970’s but in a good way. This was two coats.
Silver Fox is a light grey with silver shimmer. I like this one, but don’t love it. I don’t think it’s all that interesting for me personally, but it’s still a nice silver. This was the only one that required three coats.
Sexy Centerfold is a medium grass green with silver/pink/blue shimmer. Another fabulous green from BB! This is really a pretty color and the shimmer is nice and obvious. This was two coats.
Heavenly Hunk is a light sky blue with blue and pink shimmer. I love this color blue and I love the shimmer with it. I cannot not be happy when I have a color like this on my nails! This was two coats.
Playboy is a deep blue teal with loads of blue and pink shimmer. First off YUM. The base color is this murky watery blue teal which I love. Looks green but not green-green, if you know what I mean. The shimmer just makes it totally glow. It’s got amazing depth and is kind of mesmerizing to look at. This was two coats.
Fabulous collection! The only one I didn’t totally love was Silver Fox but that’s because I have A LOT of polish and have something similar. The most unique ones are Dirty Blond and Rustic Romance, but Playboy, Sexy Centerfold and Heavenly Hunk are all totally amazing also.
