Last, but most certainly not least, I have the final installment of my Something Borrowed mini-series! (You can check out Parts 1 and 2 here and here if you missed 'em!) I mentioned to you guys that Rach and I decided to go outside our comfort zones, and pick two of each other's polishes in finishes we don't typically wear (shimmers for Rach and cremes for me). We both took it an extra step further and threw in a third mystery polish in a more familiar territory. So much fun I could hardly stand it! So, what mystery polish did Rach send me? Oh, just a little piece of awesomeness! :-D
BB Couture Moon Over Manhattan is a medium-toned dusty teal blue with aqua and silver shimmer. In some lights it looks more blue, but in my office lighting it leans very green. The shimmer is that kind of irregular, glass-fleck looking stuff. So pretty! This is the first BB Couture I've ever tried, and lemme tell you, the formula did NOT disappoint! I should've tried this sooner! It applied flawlessly in two coats and wore like iron. As I write this, I've been wearing it for four days with only very minimal tip wear. Click to enlarge these photos and check out all that gorgeous shimmer!

Rach, I don't know how you did it, but you knocked it outta the park! It's like you read my mind!! I. LOVE. THIS! It is complete perfection from color to formula to shimmer to wear! Dare I say it? Moon Over Manhattan is everything I wanted Catherine H and Smooth Sailing to be (even though we're in a totally different color family now). The shimmer shines through exactly how I want it to, and it's just stunning. I'm smitten! I'm already planning my first BB Couture purchase, and you betcha Moon Over Manhattan and Impact Driver are gonna be part of it! You can purchase BB Couture polishes for $9.95 at www.bbnailpolish.com.
I'm sooo grateful to have had the chance to try out these polishes! Thank you, Rach, for letting me raid your stash and find some brand new loves!! One day you and Jessie and I will have to meet up and have a polish play date!
If you guys haven't already visited Rach's blog, stuff i (s)watched, go check it out! She's intelligent, funny, fantabulous, and awesome, and I absolutely love reading her posts. Plus, I totally have a nail crush on her and envy her ability to take amazing photos with her cell phone!! Rock on, girl! :-D
