Bootie Babe ~ Tears for Rears

Bootie Babe ~ Tears for Rears
Burgundy with shimmer

It’s not a secret that I like glitter, everybody should pretty much know that by now. But I’m also a sucker for a good shimmery polish, and Tears for Rears is such a polish.

The colour is dark red and very sexy, I love it! The formula is great, I had no problems with application whatsoever! Drying time is also good, and I have no complaints about the pigmentation either. It took two easy coats to get full coverage and I topcoated it before I took the pictures. The polish shines a lot in itself, but I want to show you the true beauty of Tears for Rears.

So here it is it all its glory. Two coats, one layer of Poshé topcoat:

This is a kind of red I like a lot. It makes my nails look really pretty – in all modesty of course! :D

The pictures are all taken in the sunshine. Polishes like this one loves the sun.

I think I’ve mentioned before that I like oddly shaped bottles (I almost wrote buttles! :D ) – so the fact that they put such a pretty polish into a butt shaped bottle, well, I don’t mind that at all!

 Here’s one last picture of it alone. Isn’t that shimmer just fantastic?!

I decided to wear it with a reversed glitter gradient. I used a Golden/cobber glitter from Layla with the number CE55. I got that in a swap a long time ago, and this is only the second time I use it. I sponged the glitter on and topcoated it with another layer of Poshé topcoat, and here’s my final mani:

I don’t wear golden colours very often, but I seriously like this a lot:

I must say that I’m impressed with the three polishes I tried from Bootie Babe. I like the red glitter the most, then this beauty of a shimmery polish, and the purple glitter comes in third.

I am not surprised that it’s Nubar who manufactures these, because I’ve always loved the Nubar polishes I’ve got. So yes – I’ll probably get more Bootie Babe polishes to keep these three sisters company :)
