BB Couture did another one of those complimentary two-part collections. One half for the ladies, one half for the menfolk. This one is Wild West themed, and today I have the ladies.
Belle Starr. A pretty dusty purple named for a female outlaw and convict whose murder still remains unsolved.
Frontier Woman. A dusty medium blue-toned green with little speckles of silvery-blue shimmer. Can't help but think of the Pioneer Woman when I see the name of this one. They should do a Pioneer Woman and Marlboro Man set, haha!
Laced Corset. My favorite of the collection. The base is a dark blue toned purple that is lightened a bit by all the foily metallic silver shimmer. The very best part of this polish is the shiny red glitter. There isn't a lot of it and it's pretty subtle, but it's there and it's wonderful. There's a polish in the men's half of the collection that looks almost identical with a little more of that special red glitter.
Pistol Packin' Mama. Very pretty plum brown with gold shimmer. This is very very dark, it looks mostly black until you see it in sunlight. The base is a dark espresso brown with a hint of plum purple to it. The shimmer is subtle but gives a velvet look to the polish.
Saloon Girl. A magenta berry with some pink shimmer.
Wrangler. A frosty metallic denim blue. This really makes me think of denim. Reminds me of old Maybellines! It's a little on the frosty side, but I do love the look of it.
The formula on these was varied. A couple of the shades were very runny and hard to control while the rest of them were average nice BB Couture formula. I had the most trouble with Pistol Packin' Mama, Belle Starr and Saloon Girl. I did three coats of all in these pictures. The dry time was very good, especially quick when used with Seche Vite.
Part two consists of six shades from the BB Couture For Men line, with more masculine themed names.
(These were sent to me for review.)
