BB Couture APHRODITE Nail Lacquer Review & Swatches

It’s FRIDAY. This Friday is a lot of things. End of the work week… Good Friday… Earth Day… PAINT YOUR NAILS PINK DAY!

If you haven’t heard WHY today is Paint Your Nails Pink Day, please check out this article. I’m sure most have heard the story.

My personal opinion on this is that… what is the BIG DEAL? Mom and son bonding time. It’s okay! My son is 4 and he sees me painting my nails ALL of the time. I’m a stay at home mom and am with my kids all day. My 2 year old daughter also loves her nails painted. Granted, my son usually wants his taken off within an hour, but where is the harm in indulging them? Kids this age love paint, they love color… why NOT put it on their nails. I don’t think that a little bit of nail polish is going to make your kid play for the other team (to be blunt). Simma down.

ANYWAY! My chosen pink today is BB Couture Aphrodite. The pic below is 3 coats of Aphrodite (the back says to do 2 coats but I could still see some nail, so I went for the three) and a top coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

Aphrodite is from the A Touch of Greece collection. This is a gorgeous, bright and shimmer spring color. I cannot wait to put it on my toes. I’m unsure of the wear, I did this today for Pink Friday, but I am SO hoping that it lasts through Easter. I really don’t have time to mani again before Sunday lol

BB Couture Nail Lacquer can be purchased for $9 at OverallBeauty.com. Normally they’re $9.95 so hurry over to get the SALE!!

I tried to find the pics of my son and nephews with their nails painted but they are lost in the world of Wal-Mart photo uploads lol If I can find them later I will definitely share. I also have photos of two of my nephews playing “Hair Stylist” with my daughter. They also play baseball, and like to hunt and play paintball… but so do GIRLS! Why does there have to be a line, especially for kids? Why can’t they just be themselves?

Okay I’m done preaching lol and I am sorry if this post offended anyone, but blogs are about opinions and I’m allowed to post mine. You’re allowed to post yours too 😉 as long as you’re respectful about it! All comments are moderated, and if any become rude they will be deleted.

Thank you 😉

NFU Ohhhhh Baby!

Sorry it’s been awhile since I’ve updated. Weekends are always so hectic here and then it takes forever to bounce back into something normal. You don’t even want to know what my nails looked like before I took the old polish off this morning =\

First today I redid my Pedi (I’ll spare you the feets pics) into a yellow from BB Couture. My very FIRST BB Couture polish… Little Deuce Coupe. Now… I don’t know if it’s because I tried it as a Pedi… but I found the polish to be streaky and not easy to handle. I don’t expect to keep this color on my toes long. Hopefully it’ll make a nice Mani. Yellow is a harsh mistress… hard to work with. I may need one with a shimmer.

My NOTD is Dior Black Plum (courtesy of one of my BFF’s Tracy. She went to Vegas and got me the LAST one!! WOOT! Loves her!)

I absolutely ADORE this polish. Dior makes some goodies, let me tell you. They may be expensive, but I think if you can find a nice color they are totally worth it. This is only two coats, as I added a coat of NFU Oh #60 on top. Really two coats does the trick anyway.

I bought NFU Oh #60 because I can’t seem to get my hands on Sephora OPI in 212. The NB swears #60 is better and since I haven’t seen 212 I’m inclined to agree. I’m blown away and can’t wait to try this over other polishes like black or gold.

The pic totally doesn’t do it justice. I could NOT get a good pic to show the flakies in this. Sometimes they look gold, other times rainbow… it’s just gorgeous. Totally worth the $12.50. Free shipping right now makes it even easier to buy!!

Also… I don’t know about you, but I CRAZY took advantage of the Zoya tweet buy and have 12 polishes coming my way. 10 are for me. I’ll have to do a week or two of Zoya to catch up with myself. So be prepared for that AND I want to do a week of mattes since I just got my OPI mattes and 3 of the Zoya’s are Mattes… fun times. Stay tuned!
