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.
Commando is a forest green matte. Beautiful color and I like the deep green in this finish a lot. But you can see the streaks and it really stood out where my nails ridges are especially. Named after the Arnold Schwartzenegger movie of the same name.
Lethal Weapon is a burnt red shade. Interesting color for a matte, not sure I have seen anything quite like it. Named after one of the only action movies I like, Lethal Weapon with Mel Gibson (before he actually was psychotic).
Ghost Rider is an orange-y brown. Another not so common matte shade but streaky. Named after the horridly embarrassing movie starring Nicolas Cage.
Road Warrior is a nice jet black. I really love this one actually because it wasn’t as streaky and very satiny and soft looking. Named after another Mel movie.
Top Gun is a shimmery deep midnight blue. Now I have this “thing” about shimmery mattes. I cannot HELP but add a top coat. I need that shimmer to come out! This is obviously named after Tom Cruise’s movie.

Blade Runner is a deep charcoal/black shimmer. Again, nice finish, no streaks but needs a top coat for me. This is the best named one so far! LOVE Blade Runner!

See, again I need that shimmer!
I liked a few of them, namely Top Gun, Blade Runner and Road Warrior. I did prefer two of those with a top coat though, so that goes to show ya how much I like mattes! I wish the polish hadn’t been so thick because a nice smooth finish would look much better.
What do you think about Men on Film? Over mattes or are these different enough to get you interested?
