NOTD: Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Nail Polish in Holy Fuchsia

Three coats of Be A Bombshell Cosmetics Nail Polish in Holy Fuchsia. Fuchsia Creme.

I lovelovelove receiving new polish brands in my ipsy bags, so when Holy Fuchsia appeared in my September 2016 Glamazon bag I was beyond! Not only was it a color that would rock for fall; but it was also from a beauty brand that I had yet to try. Double win!

Holy Fuchsia doesn't fit my personal thoughts on what a fuchsia shade should be, as it leans more raisin berry than pink purple; but it sure makes a great hue for autumn!

I liked the formula here. It's fluid and smooth, but can look a bit thin on the nail, so you have to use an extra coat for complete opacity. What I didn't like was the smell. Maybe I got a bad bottle, as I didn't see anyone else mention this anywhere, but the smell is horrible - almost reminiscent of an extermination smell. I'm not sure what would cause that, but maybe it had something to do with the fact that my bottle was already open when I received it. Whatever the reason, I was able to almost entirely mask the smell with top coat, but it's still strange. Ho hum.

What nail color are you rocking for #ManicureMonday?

That's so odd about the smell! I would hope your bottle was just a bad batch, since nobody else has seemed to mention this.

So I just used my polish that I got from my ipsy bag a while back and mine smells awful too, you're not alone. Found your post because I was searching to see if anyone else had the same issue! Very chemical smelling! color is great though!
