Love blue nail polish? Then you may love the new BB Couture Rhythm & Blues collection, or rather the “Blues” part. 🙂 Blues features six new blue nail polish shades in various finishes.
There is surely a blue in here with your name on it since we have light, medium, dark and even a blurple thrown in for good measure. 😉
Most of these were two-coaters, a couple were three though. The formula overall was a bit better than the Rhythm collection, I think mainly because there aren’t any pastel cremes, which can be tricky.
Stone Crazy, Hoochie Coochie Man, Black Snake Moan
Boom Boom, Back Door Man, Ball and Chain
Stone Crazy is a blue/purple or blurple as I prefer. It has such a pretty base shade, and then the pink and blue shimmer just adds to it. I love, love, love, love this color. Have I said I love this color? The formula is great, but a little sheer so I used three coats.
Hoochie Coochie Man
Hoochie Coochie Man is a very pale blue with a lot of white in it and super subtle silver shimmer. I definitely had some streaking issues with it as you can clearly see. This was three thin coats, but it just wouldn’t apply evenly at all. This is the only one of these I had issues with.
Black Snake Moan
Black Snake Moan is a dark navy blue with heavy multi-colored shimmer. Wow, this one is beautiful. It nearly covers in one coat it’s so thick and creamy. Excellent color, excellent formula. Love it.
Boom Boom is a light robin’s egg blue with silver shimmer. Very pretty color. Before you ask how it compares to Dance from the Rhythm side I shall tell you. It’s a deeper and more greyed out blue. Not as vivid. Great formula and just two coats.
Back Door Man
Back Door Man is a medium blue mega-metallic with shimmer. This is a fabulous blue metallic. I cannot think of one I have liked nearly as much recently. I’m not a huge metallic nail polish fan anymore, but I truly love this one. Barely any issues with streaking, and the coverage was like butter. Perfect in two coats.
Ball and Chain
Ball and Chain is a medium cool blue with pink and blue shimmer. Really pretty shade, another one that was like butter when applying it. What can I say, I really like this one also! This was two coats.
Overall: Another really nice collection, especially if you love blue! For me the stand-out must-haves are Stone Crazy, Black Snake Moan, Back Door Man and Ball and Chain. But I also really like Boom Boom. The only pass because of the formula for me is Hoochie Coochie Man.
