2 Silver/Greys From BB Couture: Hustle & Disco Ball

Above & Below: BB Couture's Hustle is a lovely light grey shade with fine silver glitter. After using this, I'd have to say it's one of my favorite light greys. Below is a close-up of the finish.
Below: BB Couture's Disco Ball is a bright silver shade with holographic bar glitter as well as small silver glitter. The problem is, the bar glitter did not apply in an even manner, which is somewhat typical of this type of glitter. If you look closely, you can see some of the bars got covered up with the second coat, so the shape is there, just not the holographic color. It looks nicer in the bottle, as you can see in the close-up photo below this one.
These 2 silvery grey shades are from BB Couture's Disco Ball Collection. Hustle is a light grey shimmer with small silver glitter. I really love the way this one looks, because it's such a subtle shade of grey and the refined glitter adds just enough sparkle to dress it up. Disco Ball is most definitely more silver, having a somewhat foil finish and holographic bar glitter. It too is a shimmer, and with the bar glitter and silver glitter (which sometimes looks dark grey or black), you'd think it would appear more disco ball-ish! The bar glitter is holographic and it shows up fairly well in the bottle, but not so much on the nail. I used 2 coats on both of these and have no complaints, other than that I wish the look of Disco Ball in the bottle was the same look on the nail.


  1. I like the disco ball one, the tiny circles and stripe glitter remind me on confetti.

  2. That first grey is really interesting, it's so close to silver but not.

  3. Shame to lose the holo look with the second coat. Still, it's a pretty polish. I haven't tried Disco Ball yet. I do have the whole collection.

  4. gildedangel~thank you! I just wish the confetti/bar glitter showed up a bit better.

    Skulda~I like it too, but I'm going to try it again and hopefully the glitter will place itself a little better.

    rijaH~I wanted to love it by the way it looks in the bottle. Bar glitter is pretty, but doesn't always behave right for me.

    SilhouetteScreams~I love this one. It's such a soft shade and I love the tiny glitter.

    Lucy~I agree, those bar pieces seem to have a lot of holo effect, just a shame they got covered up!
