Perfectly Polished Tips 134 - More Spring BB Couture for Nails

Finally I have for you the other two spring BB Couture shades; Sea of Cortez and Frosty Meadow. Both are lovely jelly finishes that are sprinkled with multi colored glitter. I had a bit of trouble applying them because I don't often wear jelly shades. I tried three thin coats to help the opacity but just ended up with an uneven paint job that looked globbed on in some spots. You will be able to see that in the photos. I thought about it and decided the best plan of action was to either use ridge filler, Zoya's Get Even is great as well as Essie's, or to use white polish underneath. Something like Milani Soft White or Essie Below the Belt. Unless of course a visible polish line doesn't bother you, then two coats and you should be good to go. BB Couture makes very unique colors and the brush and formula are great. If I remember correctly these polishes also have a built in base and top coat. I like to use them with BB's quick drying raspberry scented topcoat though.

This polish is a beautiful shade of blue and so perfect for spring. You can see what I meant about thickness if you look at my pointer finger.

This green shade probably made a lot of green and glitter lovers very happy. This isn't something I'd normally wear on my finger tips but I think I am going to love it for pedicures.

In addition to these two colors and Midnight Desire I believe there are a few other colors out for spring as well, including an olive green. You can find them on

Perfectly Polished Tips 133 - Zularis Naturals Contest

Recently I was given the opportunity to try Zularis Naturals products and I fell instantly in love. I will do a full review later on but I wanted to give my readers a chance to win a Passionfruit Papaya Goodie bag. The goodies will include:

*8-9 oz Layered Hand and Foot Sugar Scrub. It contains two layers of my new passionfruit papaya scent with a layer of mango in between.

*2oz Passionfruit Papaya Hand and Body Rub

*1/2 oz Intensive Repair Cuticle Oil

*a foot file/callus reducer and an emery board

The scrub and body rub are amazing products, I have yet to try out the cuticle oil and lord knows I need it! You can check out how to enter the contest at the Zularis Naturals Blog. The contest is running until March 22nd at midnight and is open to US residents only.

As for myself, I have a ton of things to share but have been super busy. Not to mention the end of winter has killed my nails, most tore almost to the quick so I am trying to nurse them back to health before doing swatch photos. I hope to have some new stuff up in the next couple of days.
