B B Couture ~ Junk in the Trunk & Carrie



B B Couture ~ Junk in the Trunk & Carrie
Blue shimmer polishes

I snatched these two beauties in a swap event I went to, and since the two blues compliment each other, I decided to use them together.

I applied two easy coats of each polish, and I’m pleased to report that the drying time between the coats was good, for both polishes. The coverage is also great, no worries there.

Here’s what Carrie (the dark blue) and Junk in the Trunk (the lighter blue) look like:


Aren’t they just a pretty couple? I holofied them! I applied a layer of Dance Legend’s holo topcoat. It’s a great holofier, even though it does grey out the underlaying colour some. Here’s that step – flash picture:


Then I stamped on it. I found a random motif on a Fauxnad plate called H21 and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri “Whirlwind White”. Here’s the final result:


And here’s a low light picture:


You can still see rainbows underneath the stamp, and the obvious greying of the blues. In this case I don’t mind so much.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Fast
Durability: Good
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: I really like both of these blues!
Buy again: Yes – or in this case: Swap again :D
