Today I am wearing Tuxedo Night from the new BB Couture For Men Formal Collection. This glitter speckled jelly formula has a deep burgundy base with a brown tint. In some lights, it reveals a dark purple hue. The color reminds me of the juice of a black cherry mingled with dark chocolate.
The thought of chocolate covered cherries possessed me as I was creating this manicure. I brought to mind cherries hanging from branches, with the warmth of the sun still on their skin. I also thought of the red foil wrappers that surround chocolate covered cherries.
I painted three coats for opacity. The first two coats looked streaky and suspicious, but the third glossed over my nails to perfection. I can't even begin to describe the gorgeous shine of this polish with topcoat. My nails look like tempting confections.
There is a multitude of shimmer particles, shaped like tiny flakies. I can discern gold and red with specks of blue violet. I would love to see the glitter in Tuxedo Night frozen under a matte topcoat. I would like it best on a man without the high gloss, unless of course he were a rock star. A little shine and flash of glitter near the guitar strings is not a bad thing at all.
Tuxedo Night was sent to me for review. This shade and the rest of the BB Couture For Men Formal Collection can be purchased from overallbeauty.com. For a chance to win all six polishes and a beauty gift pack, please visit the contest post to enter.
