3 Greens from BB Couture Cantina Nights

BB Couture's Cantina Nights collection contains 3 green shades that all contain varying degrees of bright blue/green and gold micro glitter. I want to point out that unfortunately, my photos don't show the glitter as being blue/green very well. But it is!

Above: Kiwi Margarita has a frost-type pale green base with glitter. I used 3 thin coats in all of these photos and they were all taken indoors with a flash. This one was quite sheer.
Above: Grasshopper, my favorite of these three, is a very slightly toned down lime green creme with glitter. Of the three shown, this one has the most amount of glitter. I love this base color!

Below: Kamikaze, a bright yellow/green creme with glitter, actually reminds me of a Shrek green! I think this would look much better if I had a tan.


Kamikaze and Grasshopper looked very similar to me in the bottle, but as you can see, they are completely different. Grasshopper wins as my favorite, with it's bright hue and unusual shade of green. Kamikaze is just plain fun--bright, summery, Shrek-like. I don't dislike the shade of Kiwi Margarita, but I definitely would have preferred to see it with a creme base rather than a frost.

  1. Grasshopper is gorgeous! I also love Kamikaze, but sadly, it is one of those colors that does nothing for me. I agree that it would look fantastic on someone with a warm or tanned skin tone. Unfortunately, I'm the palest of the pale, so definitely not one of those people!

  13. I can understand why you like, "Grasshopper," the most of the three color polishes. I love it! It has lots and lots of glitter in the formula, LOL The other two polishes are nice, however, I like "Kamikaze" which is stunning lime green and looks gorgoeus on your beautiful nails as my second choice.
