Question of the Week

We made it, at last.

This weekend is supposed to be a sunny and warm one here in the bay. I think I am going to bust out some more painting for this office re-design which is taking me 14 thousand years. Also I want to try and avoid the Superbowl as much as possible. ;)

BB Couture Men on Film Collection for Spring 2012 Swatches & Review

BB Couture Men on Film is the second new collection from them for spring. It’s the “manly” side of the collection.

This set features matte nail colors. Four of them are matte and two have a shimmery/matte finish. Actually they’re more satin-like than truly matte.

I did have some issues with the formula with most of these. The matte (non-shimmer) ones are VERY thick. They’re kind of hard to get even with no streaks. I felt I needed two coats for maximum coverage around edges especially, but it was so thick it made it even streakier. The shimmer/mattes ones were less thick and easier to work with. No streaking.
