I do believe this is my first full collection post. How exciting!
I wanted to save it for a company that I
For me,BB Couture has been consistently fantastic. I love everything about them.From their array colours,to their formula,and their bottle design (especially the men's ones-I love square bottles!) This is the fifth men's collection they've released, only this time with a decidedly academic and formal theme. Just in time for grad season.
Take a look!
An antique gold shimmer.It looks more taupe at certain light angles,but it's definitely gold.This is 2 coats indoors no flash
more taupe at this angle
I love this colour! It's a dusky greyish-purple shimmer.Or is it a purple-ish-grey?Either way, this is one of my favourites.It's in the same colour family as Jessica Venus Was Her Name,but Incognito is cooler-toned.

Another stunner! A classy sage green shimmer.A little more frosty than the other colours in this collection,but not disgustingly so. Gorgeous :)
A beautifully rich cerulean blue.It has a slight purple duochrome in the bottle that doesn't show on the nail but that's my only issue with it.It's radiant! Incidentally,my father has a dinner jacket that is an exact match of this polish.
This one was the catalyst for one of the worst ear-worms I've had this month. The name Tuxedo Night reminded me of 'Tuxedo Mask' (a.k.a. Darien's from the show Sailor Moon) .Then I started humming the Sailor Moon theme song...and it got stuck in my head for the rest of the day.Anyway, this colour is brilliant. It's a deep maroon with beautiful shards of micro-glitter.

the glitter is more obvious here :)
To sum up the collection in one word: Elegant. Every single colour is as sophisticated and luxe as the name suggests. There isn't a single turkey in the bunch! All are opaque in 2 coats (personally,I prefer 3) and the dry time is excellent as well. They all passed my "I-only-have-30-minutes-to-do-my-nails-before-work!" test with flying colours. Awesome. If I had to pick a favourite, it would most likely be Incognito.And Award Medal. Actually,scratch that- I can't pick a favourite because they are all equally stunning. This is by far my favourite of all BB Couture's Men's collections and should be a welcome addition to any lacquer-loving man's wardrobe :)
This collection and others are available to order here at a cost of $9 each. (P.S. their customer service is awesome! Thought you should know.)
