BB Couture Hands of Hope: Bassins Bleu

Above & Below: Bassins Bleu is shown with 2 coats. Photo is with a flash. I receive a number of eMails asking how similar certain shades are, so I'll try and compare some of them to others in my collection that I think are similar. Shown below is Bassins Bleu next to China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. Bassins Bleu is a Seafoam green, and the China Glaze has a bit more blue in it.
Bassins Bleu is another shade from the Hands of Hope Collection being offered at Overall Beauty, with a portion of the proceeds going toward the Salvation Army's Haiti relief effort. Yes, I'm still fighting with my camera, but after spending the morning researching which one to get as a replacement, I've finally made a decision, so I should have it tomorrow. In the meantime, I keep swatching this beautiful collection, smacking my camera a few times and hoping I can get some more photos! Feel free to scroll down to the previous two posts for more swatches and information about how your purchase can benefit the survivors in Haiti.


  1. This new collection is not kind to my wallet... This color is too pretty to pass on.

  2. gildedangel~it's nice, because it's such a pretty shade and bright, but not 'too' bright.

    Get Nailed~after I've had a chance to use them all, I totally agree with you. Some very nice shades in this collection.

  3. Love this polish. I'm really happy to see these all swatched. Thanks Mary for getting to these right away.
