One of my very favorite nail polish companies has come out with another incredible collection for spring. BB Couture keeps the hits coming with the Butterfly collection. Not only is it incredible, it’s NOT pastel or neon, hallelujah!
Can I just tell you that nail fanatics who have access to BB Couture and haven’t yet tried them are insane?? Seriously you MUST get some of their polish.
The formula on these was pretty darn good with a couple (small) issues.
Peep ’em and weep people! (I wanted to say weeple haha!)
Emperor is a peach with gold shimmer. This is SUPER cheery and spring-ish. I SO heart this color I can’t even explain. I am really into the peaches this year! What I love about this color is the shimmer in it. We have seen a few really nice peaches, but they have been cremes. This was a little sheer going on so I used three coats.
Peacock is a sunny bright yellow creme. This leans a little towards the warm side of yellow, but not so much that me (with my yellow undertones) can’t wear it. This was the problem kitten in the litter in terms of formula. Most yellows have this streaking issue, blah, blah, blah. You have heard this spiel before. Having said that I still loved the actual color, and used three coats to get it (mostly) even. No clue why it’s named Peacock though, I have yet to see a yellow Peacock!
Painted Lady is a bright orange jelly with yellow micro-glitter. This almost looks glass flecked. It goes on flawlessly and is very pretty. Usually I’m not a huge orange fan, but this is definitely one of the nicer ones I have seen. This was two coats.
Caterpillar is a bright green with gold and pink shimmer. What, another stunning green you say! How is this possible? Well it is and it’s NOT a dupe for any of their other greens either. The closest one I can think of to this would be Iced Olive, but that is a darker, more olive toned green. L.O.V.E. This was two coats.
Skipper is a medium fuchsia pink with blue shimmer flash. Remember yesterday when I was talking about all those cool pinks with blue shimmer in the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess post? Well this is what Wild Orchid wishes it was. This is much more opaque than Wild Orchid, and it’s beautiful. This was two coats.
Horned Devil is an orange/red jelly with orange glitter. This was my least favorite in the collection, but I still kinda liked it. It’s my least favorite only because I am not huge on orange/red’s in general. This was two coats.
What can I say this collection is totally amazing. I am SO glad it wasn’t more pastels or neons. I really don’t think anyone could make better pastels than the Orly Sweet collection and China Glaze Up & Away anyway except maybe Illamasqua’s Pastels, but only if they added more colors. Quite frankly I am really glad it wasn’t all glitters or cremes also!
You can find these on Overall Beauty’s website here and they retail for about $9.00 each or $52.00 for the whole collection.
I want to hear from you, are you loving these or not?
