Roasted

If you’ve been on the Bootie Babe storefront lately, you might have noticed some familiar looking nails! I spent several weeks swatching their entire polish line, which is around fifty shades. Fifty shades of Bootie Babe … now there’s your book title! Badum tss.

Anyway, I thought I’d show you my absolute favorite polishes!!

Bootie Babe Rump Roast is a deep brown with a vibrant purple shimmer.  The formula was rich and easy to apply.  I really love this one!  The purple shimmer really makes this shade stand out! Shown is two coats of Rump Roast.

Y’all know I’m not usually a nude polish kind of gal, but this ish right here spoke to my heart. Borghese Almondine is something special. It’s that “Band-Aid But Better” nude base that’s filled with black flecks and pink shimmer!! The shimmer is hard to see if these two pictures but I was able to capture it in the macro shots below.

A regal hue

Coronation

Coronation, 2 coats. A stunning royal purple based polish packed with shifting shimmer that goes from red to copper and at extreme angles, even green. Coronation also has subtle, small holo glitter scattered throughout. The polishes dries to a semi-matte finish but add a top coat and the shimmer comes alive.

China Glaze But Of Corpse is a super unique textured green polish with black microglitters. I almost didn’t know what to make of this polish when I first saw it, but I decided it’s awesome! It reminds me of Frankenstein’s monster. I should note that this polish did react slightly with my base coat, and it cracked on the first coat, but it smoothed out with the next coat. (Although it might have just been the particular brand of base coat I used, Rejuvacote, because I spoke to a couple other bloggers and they said they had no problems with base coat!) Shown above is three coats without top coat – it was opaque in two, but I added a third thin one to cover up any cracking issues.
