BB Couture Classic Hollywood Divas

Hi everyone! Hope everything is going well for you this fine week :) I have a new collection from BB Couture to show you called Classic Hollywood Divas. It has 8 polishes named after hawt ladies from the silver screen of yesteryear. All of these contain holographic bar glitter! I've said it before and I'll say it again, BB Couture always keeps it fresh and funky. They always put forth the most unique colors of any other company out there!

Audrey is a creamy yellow with round silver glitter and holographic bar glitter. This is two coats. I've never seen another polish like this and I like it! Audrey of course refers to Audrey Hepburn, one of my idols, her photo is all over my room and "Breakfast At Tiffany's" is my favorite movie!

Marilyn is a shimmery bright medium pink with silver round glitter and holographic bar glitter. Very fun and frisky! This is two coats. Marilyn Monroe is absolutely another one of my all time favorite Hollywood icons. I don't care if it's cliche to like her, I adore this blonde bombshell!

This is Vivian, a sheerish blue-black jelly with tons of glitter. This girl has more glitter than the others, and tt's good because the base color isn't as pigmented as some of the other polishes in this collection. This swatch is three thin coats. Vivien Leigh played Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind", the epitome of a classic film!

Next is Claudette, a shimmery medium ocean blue with the same dose of silver and string glitter as the others. This is three thin coats. Her namesake, Claudette Colbert is someone I'm not familiar with but I did read that she was the highest paid actress in the 1930s.

Here is Lucille, a creamy bubblegum pink with round silver glitter and holographic bar glitter. This one is three coats. Lucille Ball was one of the most popular stars in the US during her lifetime, a comedic staple in the lives of Americans.

Raquel is a reddish brown jelly packed with glitter, more on the sheer side than the creamier colors. This is three coats. This color is named after Raquel Welch, the only living namesake of the bunch. You might remember her from her famous animal-skin bikini from "One Million Years B.C.", or from her fierce wig collection.

This is Bette, a medium slightly shimmery green with lots of glitter. This is two coats. Bette was also a film star, from movies such as "All About Eve" and "What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?". When I hear her name though, I first think about the 80's song "Bette Davis Eyes" by Kim Carnes, haha.

And last of the Hollywood Divas is Elizabeth. This is a purple-toned red jelly with mega-tons of glitter. This is three thin coats. Of course this is named for Elizabeth Taylor, who died just barely over a year ago. "National Velvet" made her a star when she was just 12, she shined as "Cleopatra", and wowed us with her constant beauty.

You can purchase these for $9.95 from www.bbnailpolish.com or from www.overallbeauty.com. Oh and in case anyone is wondering, Cindy from BB Couture has let me know that they will have the original blue caps back in stock in about two months. What do you think of these gals? Any favorites?

  1. Great swatches as usual, but I have to say the same type of polish over and over in different colors is pretty lame on BBC's part :/

  2. Ha ha, when I saw the name 'Bette', my first thought was that song too! Great swatches! I have to agree with Sarah D. It would have been nice if they varied the finishes.

  3. I am just not a fan of bar glitter :( So I can skip these :)

  4. I think I want all of these! I just love the way the bar glitter looks suspended in the jelly. They are so unique! I haven't seen anything like them before.

  5. These are fun. Had not heard (or seen) these until now. Only one that does not want to come to me is Raquel.

  6. I love it all :o)! Have a nice day. Xoxo V.V.

  7. I really like Lucille! These are so different - I keep wanting to buy some BB Couture nail polishes but rarely see them around the blogosphere and forget about them! That's really silly because they are SO PRETTY!

  8. Audrey! I love you! Wow...I don't buy anything that isn't on sale though :P

  9. Woah, I'm totally digging all this bar glitter! Love them all!

  10. Great collection. I love greens the most but that yellow is prett amazing.

  11. I really like this entire collection and the theme behind it. The colors are gorgeous! Audrey is probably my favorite because it's so different.

  12. This is a great collection. I really love Audrey!

  13. i love love the bright pink!
    i've never heard of that brand before but it looks so fun!

    xo kaitlin

  14. These are lovely colors..the glitter looks so fun!

  15. This is a really great collection! I definitely love the theme of the collection and the colors are so unique. I am in love with Audrey but Lucille and Bette are both gorgeous too.

  16. Shame that you don't know who Claudette Colbert was... she was in "It Happened One Night" with Clark Gable, among tons of other great movies. Catch her on TCM sometime-- you'll be glad you did.

    I got Lucille-- seems more peachy coral than bubblegum pink to me....

    1. yeah i will definitely check out that movie, thanks for the rec!

      i can totally see the peachyness of lucille too :)

  17. I have to have Claudette! It's my mother's name! and it's lovely! LoL Great swatches! ;-)
