BB Couture Cantina Nights: Tequila Sunrise, Sex on the Beach

Tequila Sunrise, Sex on the Beach...sounds like an interesting mix, but get your mind out of the gutter--we're talking about nail polish here! These 2 shades are from the newest collection offered by BB Couture and also available at Overall Beauty. This collection is called Cantina Nights, and offers 12 fantastic summer colors.

Above & Below: Tequila Sunrise is a lovely shade of medium orange coral with tiny gold glitter, that applied nicely in 2 coats. The subtle golden shimmer add a nice touch of elegance to this shade, which would be a fantastic pedi color also.
Below: Sex on the Beach shown outdoors in the first photo and with an Ott lamp in the second photo, was my favorite one based on the bottle appearance. It does not disappoint on the nail, with its fire engine red hue and plenty of multi colored glitter in green, gold and red.

I'm only 2 shades into this collection, and I'm lovin' it! Both of these covered well in 2 coats and are perfect for summer. Orange-y-Coral shades are a favorite of mine, especially on my toes, and the application on Tequila Sunrise was perfection in a bottle. Maybe it's just me, but more times than not, shades like this don't cover as well as I'd like, so this one is going to get a lot of use from me. Sex on the Beach is a little hard to describe color-wise, because it has more orange in it on the nail, while in the bottle it appeared as more of a red shade. How about I just call it a pumped up burnt orange with a twist of red intertwined with an explosion of glitter? That should cover it!

  1. I love BB but their reds (that look red on the swatches or even in the bottle) go very orange on me so these are not for me.

  2. Sex on the Beach is beautiful! (And also one of my favorite alcoholic drinks on the rare occasion that I drink.) I think it looks great with the current length and shape of your nails! :)

  3. I love the color of Tequila Sunrise, I love these coral/orange-y colors!! They are very pretty :D

  4. I'm wearing Tequila Sunrise right now. I put it on Saturday. I love polishes with that gold finish to them. Love this shade also. I can't wait for some Sex On the Beach! Ha, ha, love that name. That's a sexy looking polish. I haven't been disappointed in any of the BB Couture polishes.

  5. Mmm... those shades are lovely for summertime. Love vibrant colors, and these certainly are.

  6. I love that gold shimmer in Tequila Sunrise :3

  7. They're both very pretty, but I'm leaning toward the Tequila Sunrise for my coloring. I love your descriptions.
