BB Couture Hands of Hope Collection

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    BB Couture's Hands of Hope Collection in no longer available, but since I thought the collection was something noteworthy BB Couture did, I decided to tell you about them anyhow.

    For one month this collection was available, and 25% of the sales went to the Red Cross for Haitian relief. The colors were available individually or in the collection, but on the last day of its availability, it went on sale with free shipping, so I bought it.

    The colors are actually quite pretty, although none is so unique you'll be kicking yourself for missing out. I needed three coats of each, and photographed them in a brief moment of sunlight.

    Paradise is sort of between an off white and a beige with a little shimmer in the bottle, but not so much on the nail.

    Cap-Haitan is a lavender creme.

    Labadie Beach is a pretty bright pink shimmer.

    Kyona Beach is a pretty mint creme, with the down size of having a few stray little white bits in it.

    Tortuga Island is a lime shimmer which was a bit sheer after three coats.

    Bassins Bleu is a bluish minty creme.

    With Hands of Hope came a freebie bottle of BB Couture's top coat, and I tried it out. It's not for me. It says it's quick dry, but I washed my hair about two hours after doing a manicure and got smudges and dents galore. That was disappointing.

    So this noble effort from BB Couture is my effort for today, Dear Reader. Until next time, love and nail polish to you!
