The glitters in this collection are a little sheer, but they dry quickly and I just prefer the look of 3 coats to 2 on these shades. I absolutely adore Man Bug--the name alone is enough to buy it, but the shade, a darker seafoam green, is just beautiful. I was also particularly taken with Love Bug, a very delicate bubblegum pink shade. The glitter in this one seems to change color quite a bit more than the others. Beetle Bailey is a darker lavender--not too dark, but not what I would consider a pastel exactly. I've always loved the way BB Couture polishes apply, especially their cremes, and this one was no exception. 2 coats and no streaks. Signs of Spring is not quite as bright as it's showing in my photo, but to me, it's almost a cornflower blue, and very pretty.
Speaking of signs of spring, my husband decided to take the day off so we could do some yard work. Nothing like taking a day off to work, but that's my husband (I'm most definitely the lazy one!). He's cutting into my swatching time, you know. But it was a productive day and we picked up a peach tree and 2 plum trees to add to our mini orchard, ordered a dwarf weeping cherry tree, which I've always wanted, and did some weeding and fertilizing. Then he decided we should go looking for doors and we ended up getting exactly what we wanted. The new front door is green, and the storm door has taupe trim. And of course all I kept thinking about, was how it matches NARS Zulu and so many of the taupe polishes in my collection!
