Swatches and review: Bootie Babe nail polish

Hi ladies! :) Last month, I had the opportunity to receive the most awesome packaged nail polishes ever. Yup, you guessed it - I'm talking about the hilarious bum shaped bottles sold by the people at Bootie Babe Cosmetics! For more information, check out here and here!

In terms of application, the brush was short and a little stiffer than I'm used to. As a result, I had to apply carefully and redip my brush into the polish a few times so that I could cover my nails. The handle is small and so it makes holding and controlling the brush clumsy. I hope that Mark can fix this though, as I think these polishes are so fun!

From left to right, top to bottom:
Bossy mossy, Hella baloo, Lemon nada, Pinky dinky

From pinky to index:

3 coats of Lemon nada: This is a bright neon highlighter yellow. At three coats you can still see vnl - definitely not a polish which will reach opacity!

2 coats of Pinky dinky: A medium tone barbie pink shade. I think I might actually like this pink! *shockhorror*

2 coats of Lemon nada over a white base colour: Oh, so bright! A little too bright for my taste as I'm not a neon girl but layering over a black crackle would make a pretty mani!

2 coats of Hella baloo: A pretty dark sky blue crème. Watch out for this one, it stainsssss :( Definitely double on the base coat when wearing this one.

Like I said before, if the brush was fixed and maybe the handle a little larger, these polishes would be lovely :) Check out Bootie Babe's website for more polishes! These nail polishes are currently sold at $4 per bottle, although I remember them retailing at $9 before. I'm unsure if the price change is a temporary sale or a permanent change - in any case, grab these asap! International shipping is also available :)

I'll be posting Bossy mossy in my next post as I wore it as a full mani and layered another polish over it. In the mean time, what do you think of these bum shaped polishes - tacky or hilarious?

Thanks for reading!

  1. cutest bottles so far!! =)

  2. I don't know that I'd necessarily purchase these.  The pink looks pretty though.

  3. I love the shapes of the bottle and these colors look very pretty!

  4. Ahh, they're definitely pretty haha!

  5. Haha. Well, considering the cheapest nail polish I've come across here in Australia are $2 each and OPI retailing at $20 a bottle, I consider these ones pretty cheap :P

  6. The shapes are hilarious haha! Interesting colours too, it's nice they're not all your usual shades :)
