BB Couture Glampyre - swatches and review

This is a fantastic polish from wonderful BB Couture! This polish was created by working with the band Saints of Ruin, and BB Couture brings the essence of their music in one colour. The pictures don't do it justice but let's take a look anyhow ;)

In artificial light

It is so packed with shimmer it almost changes colour :D

In sunlight

It's almost like an aura from the sunny spot :D

In daylight

It goes from light antique gold to almost black brown

Full hand in sunlight

The other polishes in the same collection


Type of polish: Shimmer.

Colour: A dark brown polish so packed with antiqe gold shimmer that it looks more like an brown-ish antique gold polish :)

Collection: Saints of Ruin Collection (see picture above).

Dupe: Pieces' Golden Chokolate (no spelling mistake it's chokolate with a K ;)) is said to be an almost perfect dupe - but it's also said to have a much thinner formula. :/

Opacity: Very good! This is two coats. If you apply one thick coat I think you can get away with one coat actually! :D

Drying time: Normal.

Formula: Excellent! It applies like melted butter on the nails and it stays exactly where it should! :D

Brush: Good! Easy to work with! :D

Shine: Very shiny on its own, but I have one coat of Seche Vite in these pictures.

Accurate colour, photo vs IRL: The shimmer comes out much more IRL so it's even more beautiful then! You must see it live to fully appreciate it!!

: 5/5 :D

I think this polish has a unique colour and an almost perfect formula!
It's a perfect vampy Autumn colour!

Have you tried this polish or any one else from BB Couture?

I like all BB Couture polishes I have tries so far! I like the 4-in-1 formula a lot to. It's base, top coat, nail strenghener and colour in the same bottle! Me like! :)


  1. Åh älskar färgen...gyllene brun å chokladig mmmmm. Elr eh nä jag ångrar mig,den e asful och passar inte alls din fina ansikte. Tycker du ska dumpa den i närmaste papperskorg, helst en nära där jag bor så jag kan hjälpa dig och källsortera den som farligt avfall :P

    1. Hehehe! Ok, nu har jag dumpat den i en papperskorg nånstans i Stockholmsområdet.
      För att du lättare ska hitta den så kommer här några mycket tydliga ledtrådar:
      Den ligger i en RUND papperskorg YTOMHUS som har en PÅSE i sig OCH papperskorgen är i närheten av en LYKTSTOLPE! Nu vet du exakt var den är va? :-P

    2. Förlåt Donkey...
      Dy kan få låna den som plåster på såren om dy vill?
      (Men det var kanske din plan hela tiden you cheeky cow? ;))

  2. Mmm, fint. Påminner mycket om Wagon Trail som du skrev. :)

    1. Ja, visst verkar den göra det?! :D
      Mindre grönt bara i denna.

  3. This is absolutely beautiful!! I did not even know this collection existed, I need to catch up on my BB Couture releases!

    1. Oh do!! This and the others are wonderful!!
      I bought this on
