BB Couture La Bamba

Today's manicure is BB Couture La Bamba. La Bamba is a burnt orange creme with incredibly subtle shimmer. It doesn't really show up indoors. This polish is incredibly sheer. I still have VNL with three coats. As such, I think this might qualify as an orange jelly.
I am feeling meh about this one. I love the color burnt orange, but it isn't jelly enough I guess - seems like it might as well be a poorly pigmented creme.
This mani is one coat SpaRitual resurface basecoat, three coats of polish, and one coat BB Couture Top Rock top coat.

This picture makes the polish appear more orange than in real life:


  1. That is a pretty shade. It doesn't look sheer on you.

  2. This seems to be a good UT manicure color. Hehe. I like it, it doesn't look sheer to me.
