BB Couture Shades of Grey is a new six-piece collection named after a certain uber popular book which shall not be named.
I’ll admit, I started and initially liked this book that shall not be named. But about halfway through I nearly lost my mind with the horrible writing. I mean there is silly trashy writing and then there is this book that shall not be named. A book I could have written when I was a pre-teen. That’s how bad it is.
ANYWAY onto the nail collection! Obviously as the name implies, these nail lacquers are all shades of grey. All are glittery or shimmery and most were three coats for me.
Smoke is a light grey with shimmer. This is a really strange color because in the bottle, it looks like it has swirls of shimmery pink or copper. But on the nail the flecks look dark grey. You can see just a hint of that pink/copper on my pointer finger towards the cuticle and on the tip of my pinky finger. But it’s incredibly subtle. This was rather sheer and I used three coats.
Shaded Ash is a murky medium greyed out green with silvery frosty shimmer. This looks a little more grey in the bottle than on the ail. I rather like this shade, it’s not a very common green. This was also a little thin and I used three coats.
Grey Matter is a smokey silvery grey shimmer with tiny flecks of green glitter. Pretty shade, very sparkly. This was three coats.
Briquette is a cool-toned charcoal grey with multi-colored flecks of micro glitter. Another nice grey shade, and pretty unique. This was also three coats.
Starry Starry Taupe
Starry Starry Taupe is a medium taupe/grey with multi-colored micro glitter. The formula with this was excellent, Not too sheer, very smooth and buttery and just two coats.
Puce is a dark plum/grey with silvery shimmer and red and green micro glitter. This is a really gorgeous unique shade and my favorite one here. Great creamy formula and just two coats.
Overall: I think most of these shades are pretty unique and I really loved Shaded Ash, Starry Starry Taupe and Puce. I do think that the micro-glitter felt the same with some of them though, so that can get a bit boring after you’ve seen it a few times.
Pricing: $10.95 for 0.5 oz.
