NOTD: BB Couture – Glampyre

BB Couture Glampyre nail polish swatch swatches olive brown NOTD

Hi everyone! :)
I almost wrote Happy Sunday because today is a holiday in Germany. 😀 Today I pampered my nails with removing my old manicure, filing them down, removing excess cuticles with Nfu.Oh’s Cuticle Remover (love this stuff!) and buffing the tips of my nails. Not really my favorite part of beeing obsessed with nails but it feels so good to have clean and filed nails. ♥

After my bright orange glitter/jelly layering I wanted to wear a darker, more vampy color next and picked BB Couture Glampyre:

Availability BB Couture nail polishes
You can buy BB Couture nail polishes on for currently $9.95 USD a bottle. Kim (the ♥ and owner of Overall Beauty) ships international.
BB Couture seems to have an online store to on but they don’t ship international.
Coats used
BB Couture – Glampyre: two
Base coat and top coat
Base coat: OPI – Nail Envy Matte
Top Coat: Essie – Good To Go
Glampyre was sent to me by Kim from Overall Beauty for review consideration.

The formula of Glampyre is great. It applies smooth and is opaque after two thin to medium coats. When Kim asked me if I would like to swatch and review Glampyre I first thought when I heard the name Glampyre that it would be a dark red or a black with red shimmer or glitter. I was surprised when I saw that Glampyre is a medium dark olive with antique gold shimmer. Though “glam” matches this antique gold shimmer. Maybe I just watched and read to much Twilight so I automatically thought of a dark red. 😀

I wish I would have discovered BB Couture nail polishes earlier. I would love to have Dragon’s Breath but it seems to be discontinued. 😮
Which is your favorite BB Couture nail polish and which must-haves could you recommend a BB Couture noob like me? :)

Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥

    Love this color! Definitely on my wish list. I also am a total BB Couture noob; there are soooo many colors that I want!

  2. Happy Pentecost! Its holiday here in Norway as well to day, here in Norway it’s called “Pinse”. I googled it and figured out it’s Pentecost in English. :)

    Always wondered where to get BB Cotoure, thanks for sharing Overallbeauty with us! :)

    • Aww thank you Karoline! I am always happy if I can create a lemming help! 😀

      Thank you so much also for loving my pictures. I take them in a simple lightbox I got from ebay for around 50 Euro. I use four halogen lamps – two on the left and two on the right – outside my lightbox. I don’t have a fancy schmancy camera though. I take pictures with my beloved Nikon CoolPix. :)

    • So far I am really impressed by the formula of BB Couture nail polishes Mína. :) I wear all colors of all seasons the entire year. 😀
      What are your favorite summer colors from BB Couture?
