Formula had a good thickness. I could have done 2 coats but I wanted the depth of 3 coats. This is 3 coats plus top coat.

Amethyst Andromeda is a grape purple holographic with a golden sheen.

I had good opacity on the 1st coat. Formula was a little thin but not bad overall (no flooding). It is insanely shiny without top coat. This is 2 coats and no top coat. 

I’m so excited that Bad Bitch Polish is creating birthstone duos – to tell the truth I can’t wait until my birthstone month (September!). This duo launches TODAY, January 31. They will be $9.50 each or $18 for the duo at Bad Bitch Polish.

I started off with SuperMoon Lacquer Mystic Mountain, which I received in a swap with another blogger. This is a multi chrome polish that shifts from blue to purple to green. The green was much more alive & glowy in person.

Bad Bitch Polish Brunch + Bitch nail polish collection swatches + review [partial]

Hi everyone! Awhile back, I swapped some polishes with a fellow blogger and she sent me these three polishes from Bad Bitch Polish: Hot Chocolate, Chestnut, and Cinnamon. I was super excited because I love BBP cremes, they always apply so smoothly and shiny! Let’s take a look at each of these.

Bad Bitch Polish Hot Chocolate | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Hot Chocolate (which you saw underneath Dripping Icicles) is the exact color of creamy hot chocolate. This self-levels nicely, with smooth application and formula. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Chestnut is the color of a chestnut – yup, pretty spot on! Formula and application was the same as Hot Chocolate. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Bad Bitch Polish Cinnamon | Be Happy And Buy Polish

Cinnamon is a burnt orange color. Formula was a bit thicker than the other two, but it wasn’t unmanageable. This is 2 coats and no top coat.

Hot Chocolate has to be my favorite of these three, I’d love to know what your favorite is!

Thanksgiving Skittlette Manicure with Bad Bitch Polish, Polish ‘M, and Fancy Gloss

Happy Thanksgiving Day to all my American readers and happy Thursday to everyone else! 😛 I hope that you will have an enjoyable day, and failing that, plenty of booze to help you get through any political discussions. 😉 Just a quick post to show you my manicure that I have on my nails today with Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee), Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut, and Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype.

I used 2 coats plus top coat of Bad Bitch Polish Chestnut on my index finger. Just like all of BBP cremes, this was pretty much flawless, and didn’t need top coat for shininess.

On my pinky finger, I used 3 thin coats of Polish ‘M Instant Human (Just Add Coffee). This is a dark brown base with gold shimmer, gold, silver, orange, green, blue, and purple glitters. Good formula, a teeny bit thin for me but I like my formulas on the thicker side.

On my thumb, middle, and ring fingers, I started off with a base of white. Then on my thumb and ring fingers, I used a Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype. This is an orange base with red and green-gold teeny flakes.

On my middle finger, I used the Fancy Gloss and Chestnut in a needle drag technique. It isn’t my best needle drag but I’m okay with it. I finished off with a bow charm (last used in this Barbie freehand nail art manicure).

Anyway, this was a fun little manicure to do! I hope you have an enjoyable day – I get to splurge and have a piece of pie, with the doctor’s blessing even! That reminds me, I haven’t written an update on this pregnancy lately and I really should – so much to say. But, another day!

Gothic Nail Art with Bad Bitch Polish You’re a Star(ling), OPI My Current Crush, Zoya Tilly, Funky Fingers Dark Night

Press Sample buttonHi everyone and happy Halloween! I’ve just been really too “meh” to take on doing a Halloween manicure at the moment but I did this gothic nail art look a few weeks back and it seemed to fit the Halloween theme so I thought I’d show it to you today!

Bad Bitch Polish You're a Star(ling), OPI My Current Crush, Funky Fingers Dark Night, Zoya Tilly | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started with 2 coats plus top coat of Bad Bitch Polish You’re A Star(ling) [press sample] on my pointer, middle, and ring fingers. On my middle and ring fingers, I used a striped vinyl stencil and painted Funky Fingers Dark Night over the top.

I then used 3 thin coats and no top coat of OPI My Current Crush on my thumb and pinky.

On my pointer finger, I used a stencil with Zoya Tilly, then outlined with Dark Night. This part didn’t come out like I wanted to, unfortunately.

I know it isn’t really “Halloween” per se, but I still ended up liking the finished product quite a lot. Have a spooky day out there!
