day one hundred and thirty seven, bb couture napa valley red

okay. so this is a new brand. and i put new in italics because it isn't really new. it hasn't just begun and i didn't just hear about it. it's new because i just never got around to buying any polish from this brand, even though it's been on my polish wishlist for about 2 years. bb couture is an american brand and they teamed up with Kelly of Vampy Varnish to create her dream collection. as someone who was raised in california (and went to university in oakland) i love all the place names with colours that depict locations in northern california i am intimately familiar with.

also, leave it to Kelly, vampy colour queen to create a vamp that even I (vamp hater!) can't get enough of!!! napa valley red is a like a glass of a bordeaux with carbonation. a bordeaux spritzer if you'll allow it (not that i'd ever encourage actually drinking it in real life...sounds disgusting. but as a visual! it helps get the point across!). it's a dark dark red with red glitter densely packed in the polish. i usually don't like the red glitter on black polishes because the red glitter gets lost...but not in this one. it doesn't even look like a plain vamp in really bad, low lighting. you can still see the glitter!!!! it's like a miracle! the polish just glows. i know i'm writing a lot for one colour but it is a stand-out, must have colour!

BB Couture polishes are available from Overall Beauty

Seriously gorgeous color! More seriously, WHERE in Oakland did you go? I'm from there, live on the backside of Mills College. So awesome to find someone who actually knows Oakland!
